Auxerre vs Lorient: Predictions & Odds

After several years outside the top flight of the Ligue 1, Auxerre is back in France's top league. The start of the season was positive with two wins in their first three matches, however, after three straight defeats, things have changed.  Lorient, on the other hand, has been nothing but terrific winning five out of seven games played.

BTTS – YES

Only five teams have scored more goals than Lorient this season (14), however, as good as their attack is currently, defending is much to be desired for. Lorient allowed 11 goals this season, but their weak defending hasn't shown when it comes to their efficiency. Auxerre's attack hasn't been firing on all cylinders just yet, but their defense is also something they need to improve upon, especially after a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Rennes. Lorient is winning games by scoring a bit more goals than they are allowing, and Auxerre should have enough firepower up front to at least make it an exciting game.

Lorient to Win

It's strange to see Lorient this high up the table, but it is well deserved. The old football paradigm states that you must score more goals than your opponent to win games, it seems ridiculous saying it out loud because it's obvious, but Lorient is doing just that. One of the best forward lines in the league, and also one of the worst defensive teams. After losing three straight games by allowing nine goals compared to only one scored, Auxerre is grasping at straws.

What happened to Auxerre?

It seems as if it has been forever since Auxerre last time played in the Ligue 1, but after the first three games, those sentiments looked meaningless. Wins against Montpellier and Strasbourg proved that this team is capable of fighting with Ligue 1 veterans. However, the honeymoon phase is now over, three straight defeats with an unimpressive goal difference (1-9) in those games put Auxerre on the backend of the league table once again. Of course, the season is still very young, however, things can go out of hand pretty quickly.

Auxerre predicted starting lineup: Costil, Joly, Jubal, Coeff, Mensah, Toure, Sinayoko, Sakhi, Raveloson, Autret, Niang.

Lorient barely survived last season, finishing at 16th place in Ligue 1. During this summer they brought in a new coach Regis Le Bris who is doing a fantastic job so far. Even the biggest optimists couldn't forsee that Lorient would have five wins in seven games holding fourth place, only trailing PSG, Marseille, and Lens.

Lorient predicted starting lineup: Mvogo, Kalulu, Laporte, Talbi, Le Goff, Abergel, Innocent, Diarra, Le Fee, Ouattara, Moffi.

Team News

Auxerre: Nuno da Costa, Julian Jeanvier, Gaetan Charbonier, Theo Pellenard are missing for the host.

Lorient: Quentin Boisgard will be out of action for a few weeks.
