Auxerre to Win

Reason for tip

Auxerre’s home form has been fairly solid with just one defeat (to PSG) and three wins in their last seven games. The home side need the points and may be able to inflict a rare defeat on Lens, who locked in second place last week and have little left to play for.

Auxerre 2-1

Reason for tip

Auxerre may well get the win they need but they might have to do it the hard way. Lens have only conceded more than twice in one game across all competitions this season and have scored in 18 successive games, so back the hosts to claim a 2-1 victory.

Rocha Jubal Junior To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Auxerre defender Jubal looks a good outside contender for an anytime goal. The 29-year-old Brazilian has managed three Ligue 1 goals, the highest league tally of his career, and occasionally takes his side’s penalties.

Auxerre vs Lens Predictions

  • Auxerre are still fighting relegation
  • Lens have second place secure irrespective of Saturday’s result.
  • Auxerre have just one defeat in their last seven at home.

Needs must for Auxerre

Auxerre sit two points clear of the Ligue 1 drop zone ahead of the final round of fixtures, where they host Champions League-bound Lens.

At any other point in the season a win for the visitors would be the obvious call here but Auxerre are the team in desperate need of a result, while Lens have second place secured.  Nantes sit immediately below Auxerre and a draw wouldn’t necessarily be enough for the hosts against Lens due to the fact La Maison Jaune have a superior goal difference.

Auxerre can make most of home advantage

If Auxerre do avoid the drop it will be down to a strong run of results at home as they have just one defeat in their last seven at the Stade de l’Abbé-Deschamp – and that defeat came via 2-1 loss to PSG.

Lens have been flying with 10 wins in their last 11 games but they guaranteed second place with a win over Ajaccio last time out and now having nothing left to play for, so at a big price a win for AJA appeals.

Both teams capable of scoring

Lens have scored in 14 consecutive away games and overall it has been 18 games since they last drew a blank.

Auxerre may be a little nervous, particularly if relegation rivals Nantes take an early lead against Angers, and they have gone seven games without a clean sheet so it seems likely that both teams will score. A 2-1 win for the hosts is the correct score prediction – as Lens have only conceded more than twice in one game all season across all competitions.

No Auxerre player has scored more than five goals in Ligue 1 this season, which perhaps goes some way to explaining why they need a result on the last day of the campaign, but Jubal looks a reasonable outside contender to get on the scoresheet. The defender has three Ligue 1 goals to his name – the best league tally he has managed in his career so far – and occasionally takes penalties so he may well be the hosts’ hero on Saturday.
