It goes without saying that they will be back with a vengeance and that they will be ready to produce a smashing victory against the recently promoted Auxerre this Sunday in front of their home crowd.
Auxerre will be eager to begin their new voyage after finishing third in the second division the previous season. But they face a difficult time soon.
They’ll start their season against past champs on the road. They’ve also struggled defensively and on the road. Their inexperience against top-division clubs will be difficult.
Meanwhile, keep in mind that Lille had won the championship the season before, surpassing teams like PSG along the way.
They have been scoring goals in great numbers lately and have been on a nice run. They are also performing well in front of their home audience.
