Dunkerque vs Auxerre: Our top betting tips

Auxerre come into this game as favourites to win the match but this clash has serious ‘banana skin' potential. Will Auxerre prove the bookmakers correct by winning or do lower league Dunkerque have a surprise waiting for their Ligue 1 opponents? Find out with our Dunkerque vs Auxerre match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Auxerre to win

We kick off our tips for this match by backing Auxerre to win. Dunkerque are going to be far from a pushover in this match as they sit in the upper region of their league table but it's hard to ignore the fact that they play a couple of tiers below Auxerre. Furthermore, despite a strong start to their season, the hosts aren't in the best moment right now either having gone three home games without a win. Auxerre aren't exactly flying right now either having suffered two straight defeats following a return to competitive action following the World Cup but notably they are the only defeats suffered in their last five games; they've won two and drawn one of the other three. With both sides in indifferent form, that superior quality in the Auxerre squad cannot be ignored. The fact they've won each of the last four head to head games is noteworthy too.

Going under 2.5 goals

Our next tip for this game comes from the total goals market and we are backing a low scoring game – specifically betting on under 2.5 goals. Dunkerque have seen three of their last five games fall short of that 2.5 cut off with two of Auxerre's last three also coming in south of the same threshold. In addition to strong signs of ‘under' in recent form, the head to head record is once again a useful reference for us; three of the last four head to head meetings, all of which have occurred since December 2020, have seen fewer than three goals.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Dunkerque odds: 16/5 (4.20) – 24%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 29%

Auxerre odds: 5/7 (1.71) – 58%

Ligue 1 status immediately makes Auxerre favourites for this game in most peoples eyes and the bookmakers agree. What's noteworthy though is that the bookies odds suggest there is more than half a chance for Dunkerque. That's not only visible in the match result odds but also in some of those more complex result markets such as handicap and half time/full time bets. For example, backing Auxerre to lead at both HT and FT will net you odds of 6/4 (2.50); that's a marked step up from the 1×2 price.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Dunkerque vs Auxerre

Dunkerque

Despite being the lower ranked side of the two facing off, Dunkerque will rightly believe they can win this game – especially with home advantage on their side. They'll need to bring their A game to do so though so expect them to name the strongest possible XI.

Predicted lineup – Balijon (GK), Anziani, Baghdadi, Bilingi, Ipele, Keita, Kondo, Mbemba, Mbone, Senneville, Thiam

Auxerre

Auxerre will be taking this game very seriously – make no mistake about that. Dunkerque are a side going strongly in their league and Auxerre being away makes this tie much trickier. We're expecting a strong and experienced lineup from the start with a potentially youthful subs bench, which can then be used if the game goes according to plan.

Predicted lineup – Costil (GK), Mensah, Jeanvier, Jubal, Zedadka, Perrin, Toure, Sakhi, Sinayoko, Da Costa, Niang

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

If there is one player Dunkerque are fearing ahead of this match it's Auxerre's attacker M'Baye Niang. The Senegal striker has been in good form of late netting six goals in his last five matches including a clash with Metz where he scored four goals in just eight first half minutes!
