Draw

Nantes rarely wins away from home, and for this particular Auxerre vs Nantes prediction, what has the most sense is a draw. Only one team had more draw matches than Nantes, it is Reims who played 14 draw games, one more than Nantes. Auxerre has eight of those matches on the record. However, the significant stat, in this case, is that the guest team had three draws in their last four matches alone. Auxerre had two in the same period. Regarding their h2h stat, only one game ended with teams splitting the spoils.

Under 2.5 Goals

There was only one game between these sides from the past five they played which ended with more than two goals in the back of the net. And that Auxerre vs Nantes duel was a stunning match that ended with Auxerre winning 4-3. That happened five years ago. There aren't many matches between these teams in the last few years because Auxerre spend that time in the second division. For the season, both teams are some of the best ‘under' clubs in the country. Auxerre has played 16 games with fewer than three goals scored including four out of the last five while Nantes had four ‘over' matches in the same period.

Team News, Preview, and Auxerre vs Nantes Lineups

Auxerre

The home team's form when they are playing in front of their fans gives them a decent opportunity to get valuable points, and as they showed recently, the team has built a lot of confidence that way. They are undefeated in their last three home matches with two wins in the process. Gideon Mensah and Elisha Owusu are injured.

Predicted lineup: Radu, Raveloson, Jubal, Jeanvier, Zedadka, M'Changama, Toure, Boto, Hein, Perin, Da Costa.

Nantes

The visiting team did the main job by advancing to their second straight Cup final, but now they have a mission to defend their Ligue 1 status. Even if they win the Cup for another year, their fans won't care that much if their club is relegated. At the moment, the team is five points clear from the danger zone, but what troubles the team is their away form. They only have two wins from their visits this term. To make matters worse, there are several injured players: Pedro Chirivella, Joao Victor, Remy Descamps, Nicolas Pallois, and Jaouen Hadjam are missing the trip to Auxerre.

Predicted lineup: Lafont, Corchia, Girotto, Castelletto, Centonze, Moutoussamy, Sissoko, Simon, Mollet, Guessand, Delort.

Player to Watch: Nuno Da Costa

There are not many players for Auxerre who have excelled this season, but if we can choose one, it would be Cape Verde's international, Nuno Da Costa. He is tied for the best team scorer with four goals and also leads the squad in the assists department with three.
