Auxerre to Win

Auxerre returned to Ligue 1 for the first time since the 2011/12 season but they look ready to go back to Ligue 2 since they are currently second-last in the standings and on a five-game losing streak.

However, Montpellier is hardly better at the moment since they also lost three games in a row, on top of which they lost to Pau in French Cup as well. Auxerre beat Montpellier in their first duel this season, so we can see that happening again, especially since they are now hosting the game.

Auxerre vs Montpellier Preview: Recent Form, News, and Possible Lineups

This can be a very close matchup in Ligue 1, so let's take a more detailed look at both teams now:

Auxerre

After losing their last five matches in Ligue 1, Auxerre is now sitting in the second-last place in the standings with 13 points from 19 rounds. However, the team is only a couple of points behind Strasbourg, the first team outside of the relegation zone. They are also just four points behind their next opponent Montpellier. So, Auxerre shouldn't be written off just yet.

On the bright side, only Kays Ruiz-Atil is currently on Auxerre's injury list, so they can field their best team against Montpellier.

Auxerre Predicted Lineup:

Leon – Zedadka, Toure, Jeanvier, Raveloson – Toure, M´Changama, Autret, Hein – Niang, Perrin.

Montpellier

Just like their upcoming opponent, Montpellier has also struggled recently and they are too on a losing streak, although they lost their last three games in Ligue 1 opposed to the five losses in a row by Auxerre. So, Montpellier has to find their form sooner rather than later since they are just two points ahead of the relegation zone right now.

Meanwhile, Pedro Mendes is currently injured, while Wahbi Khazri and Elye Wahi are suspended at the moment.

Montpellier Predicted Lineup:

Kamara – Tchato, Jullien,  Sacko, Maouassa – Ferri, Leroy, Savanier, Nordin – Germain, Mavididi

Ligue 1 Standings

Player to Watch: Mathias Outret

We went with Auxerre in this game, so we wanted to choose one of their players as a player to watch against Montpellier, so after a bit of deliberation, we decided to chose Mathias Outret.

The experienced French forward didn't have that impressive of a season so far with two goals and two assists in sixteen appearances, but that is enough to make him one of the key contributors to his team's offensive output.
