Marseille to Win-to-Nil

Even though Auxerre has done well recently, the favorite tag in this Marseille vs Auxerre prediction goes to the home team. With Champions League participation as the prize, the hosts can't allow themselves to lose matches at home against the inferior competition. Auxerre won three games in a row before drawing last week against Lille, so they will be a difficult opponent for Marseille at this point of the season. Auxerre hasn't beaten Marseille in 14 years, a streak of eight matches. The last three times they met, Marseille won all the games without conceding a goal.

Under 2.5 Goals

These are not teams who have played many games with more than two goals scored in a match, Auxerre is a top four under 2.5 goals team with 17 of those matches played and an average of 2.6 goals being scored per contest. Marseille is slightly above that average with 14 matches where the limit of goals was stopped at number two. The home team in this Marseille vs Auxerre match did have three ‘over' games from their last five outings, while from the same sample of matches, Auxerre had two of those games.

Team News, Preview, and Marseille vs Auxerre Lineups

Marseille

It has been an up-and-down season for Marseille, but with all the problems they had, the team is still where it needs to be regarding their placement. They were hoping to challenge PSG for the title, but the Parisiens proved to be too strong of an opponent. However, the second goal was to secure Champions League football and the team is in the middle of a battle to secure that ambition. Nuno Tavares, Dimitri Payet, and Azzedine Ounahi are injured.

Expected lineup: Lopez, Balerdi, Gigot, Kolasinac, Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Kabore, Malinovsky, Under, Sanchez.

Auxerre

The visiting team has put themselves in a situation where they have a good chance of staying in Ligue 1 after earning three wins from their last four matches. However, the fight for survival is nowhere near being over with Auxerre having only one point of advantage over Brest, who is the first team under the relegation zone line.

Expected lineup: Leon, S. Toure, Jubal, Jeanvier, Mensah, B. Toure, M'Changama, Raveloson, Niang, Hein, Da Costa.

Player to Watch: Cengiz Under

There are a few players who had the most effect on Marseille's good season, and Cengiz Under is certainly one of those. Turkish international winger has appeared in 31 league matches scoring four goals with as many assists on the record.
