Today's Predictions for Lens vs Auxerre

Lens have been priced as odds-on favourites to gather three points at Auxerre’s expense when the teams clash on Saturday in Ligue 1. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Lens to Win to Nil

Relegation candidates Auxerre have lost three games in a row in Ligue 1 and their 5-0 hammering at the hands of Toulouse in midweek would have evaporated any remaining confidence in their ranks. Indeed, Auxerre have failed to score in three of their last four league assignments overall and they could struggle to make an impact in the final third again when they visit title-chasing Lens on Saturday. We expect the hosts to dominate and a stake on Lens to win to nil is our first prediction.

Over 1.5 Lens Goals

Auxerre were torn to shreds in alarmingly-easy fashion by Toulouse on Wednesday evening (0-5) and their defence looked brittle enough to suggest they could be sliced upon just as handily by an even-strong Lens outfit on Saturday. Lens have notched at least twice in each of their last three domestic fixtures and they can be backed at a tempting price to net over 1.5 times again when they host an Auxerre side in dire straits.
