Lyon to win but Auxerre will score

Lyon have enjoyed a fairly good run this summer; they are unbeaten in their last five matches, with three wins and two draws. To be fair, Auxerre haven't done so bad themselves; as they are coming off back-to-back wins, with four wins in their last six games across all competitions. However, we would like to point out that Auxerre tend to struggle against Lyon; they won just two of the last 24 clashes between these teams, with six draws and 16 losses. With that in mind, we are predicting a win for Lyon; and considering Auxerre scored in their last six games, both teams should get on the score sheet as well.

Goals to be bagged at both ends

We've pointed out that Auxerre found the net in all of their last six matches; we should also mention that they failed to score in just one of their last 30 matches. As a matter of fact, Auxerre bagged 10 goals in their last six matches. On the other hand, Auxerre have conceded their fair share of goals; as they've seen their defence breached nine times in their last five games. Both teams scored in four of Auxerre's last five matches; and considering Lyon's last four games saw goals scored at both ends, both teams should be amongst the goals.

Lyon will hope to keep their unbeaten start going

Lyon might be the side on show here that are still protecting their zero defeats but Auxerre haven't made a bad start to the new campaign either as they sit in seventh place having taken seven points from four games to date. A win for the visitors here would see them leapfrog their hosts.

Anthony Lopes will serve the last match of his three-game suspension, as he was red-carded in Lyon's opener against Ajaccio. Peter Bosz also has some injury worries as they take on Auxerre; as Houseem Aouar, Julian Pollersbeck, Sinaly Diomande and Jerome Boateng will not be available for selection.

Lyon Predicted lineup – Riou, Gusto, Mendes, Lukeba, Tagliafico, Reine-Adelaide, Repenant, Tolisso, Tetê, Lacazette, Ekambi

Auxerre will be glad to have Nuno Da Costa back from a one-match suspension, although M'Baye Niang remains suspended for picking up a straight red card against Montpellier. Julian Jeanvier, Gaetan Charnonnier and Théo Pellenard are still in the recovery room for Auxerre; will they be able to end Lyon's unbeaten run with these players?

Auxerre Predicted lineup – Costil, Joly, Jubal, Coeff, Bernard, Toure, Perrin, Sakhi, Hein, Autret, Sinayoko
