Lyon and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Lyon are on a mission to improve their league position and their unbeaten run of five away games deserves praise. But they have kept just two clean sheets on the road in the league this season and Auxerre are desperate for points. However, the hosts have failed to achieve victory in nine of their 11 home matches and are likely to fall short once again, despite getting on the scoresheet.

Lyon 3-1

Reason for tip

Auxerre need to earn points and with Lyon struggling defensively, the hosts should be good for a goal here. However, Lyon are a much better attacking force and we expect them to edge this encounter, possibly via a 3-1 scoreline.

Auxerre vs Lyon Predictions

  • Lyon have kept just two clean sheets across their 11 away Ligue 1 outings.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the visitors’ 11 road matches.
  • Auxerre have failed to win nine of their 11 home fixtures.

Auxerre need to turn it around

The hosts are four points adrift of safety and sit second-bottom in the Ligue 1 standings. This is largely due to the fact they’re defensively hopeless and are conceding an average of over two goals per game this term. They’ve failed to win 20 of their 23 Ligue 1 outings this season and they welcome a Lyon outfit that have hit some good form. You have to go back to October 2022 to find their last victory on home soil and it looks like the wait may go on.

The visitors are on a roll and are unbeaten across their last five competitive away games. They’ve managed to hit the back of the net at least twice in all of those fixtures and if they can do that here, it may be enough to seal all three points. They’ll need to be careful though as the hosts are now fighting for their lives.

Lyon to emerge victorious

Auxerre need to put some form together and to a certain degree, they need to have sustained periods of pressure if they’re to claim the points they need to help their survival bid. The hosts look good to contribute to the scoring, but in the end, Lyon should prove too good and an away win with both teams scoring looks a good option.
