Today's Predictions for Angers vs Auxerre

Can Angers or Auxerre carve out a victory to aid their push for survival when the teams meet in Ligue 1 on Sunday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Angers and Auxerre sit bottom and second bottom of Ligue 1 ahead of their clash on Sunday, and an exciting tussle could be in the works as both teams aim to strike a decisive blow in the relegation battle. Nine of Angers’ last ten home matches in the division produced goals at both ends, while BTTS also landed when they drew 2-2 with Auxerre earlier in the season and in the 2-2 draw in a friendly encounter between the clubs in December. Neither defence can be relied upon to keep a clean sheet and with that in mind, our first prediction recommends a stake on both teams to score.

Over 2.5 Goals

When Ligue 1’s two worst clubs collide on Sunday, tensions should be high with both combatants presented with a chance to resurrect their survival bid at the other’s expense. We expect the tackles to fly at the Stade Raymond-Kopa, just as they did when the teams faced off back in August. A whopping eight cards were brandished to the players involved that afternoon, so backing over 3.5 of them to be awarded in Sunday’s rematch feels like a safe bet.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Sunday’s contest between Angers and Auxerre below.

Angers odds: 71/50 (2.42) – 41.3%

Draw odds: 31/10 (4.1) – 24.4%

Auxerre odds: 137/100 (2.37) – 43.2%

The bookmakers have found it hard to split the teams on Sunday which is why the match result markets are probably best avoided here. Under 2.5 goals is priced at 8/11 (1.73) – 57.9% which suggests margins should be slim, though four goals did hit the net in each of the teams’ last two encounters. A 1-1 draw is favoured in the correct score markets by the bookies at 11/2 (6.5) – 15.4%.

Angers vs Auxerre Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash between Angers and Auxerre below.

Angers

Angers could be without the injured Farid El Melali, Abdoulaye Bamba, Yahia Fofana, Ali Kalla and Ulrick Eneme-Ella this weekend, while Souleyman Doumbia is suspended. Angers snapped a 13-match unbeaten run with a 0-0 draw at Lorient last time out, though they are still rooted firmly to the bottom of the table.

Predicted Lineup for Angers: Bernardoni – Valery, Hountondji, Blazic, Chetti – Salama, Mendy, Bentaleb, Abdelli – Hunou, Niane

Auxerre

The injury picture for Auxerre looks much better than their hosts this week. Midfielder Kays Ruiz-Atil is ill and could miss the next couple of weeks, though the rest of the Auxerre squad should be fit and available. Auxerre held Reims to a 0-0 draw in their last Ligue 1 test.

Predicted Lineup for Auxerre: Radu – Raveloson, Jubal, S. Toure, Mensah – Massengo, B. Toure, Hein, Autret, da Costa – Abline

Player to Watch – Ibrahima Niane

Deadline day signing Ibrahima Niane made a good impression on his debut for Angers against Lorient last weekend. The 23-year-old attacker managed to hit the target with both of his attempts on the day, and though he didn’t find the net, the early signs were promising. The Senegalese striker will hope to get off the mark for his new club on Sunday.
