Lyon to Win

The visiting team has finally started to play according to their potential, especially when it comes to their away form. They have been horrible when playing outside their home stadium, but with two wins in a row at Ajaccio and Troyes, things are finally looking brighter. Since losing at home to Strasbourg a month ago, Lyon has gone with three league wins and a draw while also advancing in the French Cup. Auxerre, on the other hand, looks like one of the favorites to be relegated, a year after coming back to Ligue 1. Their last league win was earned in late October, and since then losses have been piling up. On a positive note, they have managed to earn a point in their last two games, but if they want to stay in the Top Division they need to get some wins. The host's home form ahead of the Auxerre vs Lyon match, have them winning only twice while allowing a total of 19 goals. After their recent improvement in away form, Lyon looks like a different team going four wins without a loss outside their home turf. The prediction of a Lyon win is based on the fact they are going through the most positive run of form this season.

Under 2.5 Goals

In the second Auxerre vs Lyon prediction we focus on the number of goals possibly being scored. Not only that Auxerre is unable to win games, but they are also allowing goals at a high rate. There are only two teams that have conceded more goals at home than Auxerre, those are Clermont and Strasbourg. For the season, Auxerre had eleven under 2.5 goals games in 23 played, but four in their past five outings. Lyon has the same stat for the season, but they did have two ‘over' matches in a row. Their first match of the season ended with a 2-1 Lyon win. Before that game, they played over ten years ago so those matchups shouldn't be relevant for this game.

Auxerre vs Lyon Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Auxerre

It was an impressive start to the season by Auxerre, however, those days seem like a distant past at this point. Going without a win for over four months brought negative feelings inside the locker room and there is doubt about whether this team can pull through and avoid relegation. Siriki Dembele and Kays Ruiz-Atil are out with health issues.

Predicted lineup: Radu, Raveloson, Jubal, Toure, Mensah, Massengo, Toure, Hein, Autret, Da Costa, Abline.

Lyon

With three wins in their last four matches, Lyon is finally looking at a team that can fight for European places. They won't be going after the title, but at this point, just advancing to one of Europe's competitions should be a good enough a reward. Lyon has Jeffinho and Malo Gusto out with injuries.

Predicted lineup: Lopes, Lukeba, Lovren, Diomande, Tagliafico, Tolisso, Caqueret, Kumbedi, Cherki, Barcola, Lacazette.
