Evidently all eyes are on the encounter OL – Bordeaux. However, there is also an interesting Lorient – Auxerre…

The first round of league matches is coming to a close. Will the surprise teams Montpellier, Valenciennes, Auxerre and Lorient be able to keep up the rhythm until the winter break? This week-end Valenciennes are away to a Le Mans side that they should be able to beat, while Lorient are at home to Auxerre while Montpellier travel to Toulouse where Gignac has refound his shooting boots.


At the bottom end of the table, will Grenoble be able to continue the unbeaten run after 4 matches without defeat. This week-end they head to Sochaux. Le Mans, who have changed coaches, receive Valenciennes. Le Mans are obliged to win. Boulogne will have trouble doing the same at the Stade Vélodrome. As for St-Etienne, their trip to Paris will not be a walk in the park.


Mid table matches see Nancy at home to a good Rennes side. Monaco who have seen their form dip are up against a Lille side who cannot stop winning and scoring a hatful of goals … And finally, if Lens are able to overcome Nice, they will go ahead of their opponents of the evening, moving a little bit further away from the relegation zone.
