Top Predictions and Best Odds for Lorient vs Auxerre

Auxerre stunned Lyon last week to prolong hope of a possible stay in Ligue 1, but a visit to Lorient could burst that bubble fast enough.

Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

Both Teams to Score – No

Lorient is expected to be the one who dictates the way the game is played, their tactics will most likely determine the winner. Auxerre has been hopeful scoring-wise, especially as an away team getting only ten goals in twelve matches played. Strangely enough, when we look at their h2h record, Auxerre has regularly scored when playing at Lorient, however, those were different times. Auxerre, as we know it today, is in midst of a battle to stave off relegation, and plenty of pundits would agree that their mission is doomed to fail. The visiting team had two out of their past five matches with BTTS covered, and that number goes down by one when we count their away matches. They managed to score in their last two encounters. Lorient, on the other hand, has kept the clean sheet in their last couple of home matches.

Lorient to Win

Even though Lorient is far from their best form which we witnessed earlier in the season, they are still a team ranked inside the top seven with a legitimate shot at getting into the top five, thus we put this Lorient vs Auxerre prediction directed toward the home team winning. The curious thing about Lorient is their goal difference which stands at 38-35. They barely have any advantage when it comes to a positive efficiency rating. However, their opponent is in even worse shape. Auxerre had earned only four wins out of 24 matches this season and that record is downgraded when we check their away form. They share the worse away record in the league with Angers having won only a single game with two draws and nine losses. Lorient won their first meeting this season by the score of 3-1.

Lorient vs Auxerre Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

Lorient

After selling their best two strikers Terem Moffi and Dango Ouattara last month, Lorient has been left with only Ibrahima Kone as their main forward option. Kone hasn't gotten into positive form just yet, and last week in the 3-0 win against Ajaccio, three midfielders scored goals. Yoann Cathline, Bonke Innocent, and Julien Laporte are out with injuries.

Potential lineup: Mannone, Le Goff, Talbi, Meite, Kalulu, Makengo, Le Fee, Dieng, Ponceau, Faivre, Kone.

Auxerre

The guest team stunned Lyon a week ago which is their most impressive result this season. But, those are not often shown, and with the way their season continues to excel, it is going to require something really special to keep them in Ligue 1. Scoring has been a major issue for Auxerre the entire season with no one at the forefront. Julian Jeanvier, Elisha Owusu, and Kays Ruiz-Atil are injured.

Potential lineup: Radu, Toure, Jubal, Raveloson, Mensah, Toure, Massengo, Zedadka, Perrin, Abline, Da Costa.

Player to Watch: Enzo Le Fee

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder scored four goals and assisted on five occasions this season playing in all 24 matches for his team. After Moffi's and Ouattara's departure, he has been given a more prominent role in Lorient's forward line and will be someone to focus on in Lorient vs Auxerre match.
