Auxerre vs Lille Head-to-head stats

The reverse fixture ended in a 4-1 win for Lille, and they have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes since 2010 – barring only three draws. It is also to be noted that the hosts last won at this ground back in 2009.

Who will win the match between Auxerre vs Lille?

Lille are former champions of the competition, and they also are chasing a European ticket this season in the Ligue 1. Currently they are placed fifth in the table.

They have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival, Auxerre, who at one point were battling relegation.

It seems that the hosts of the day have improved their form quite a bit. They surely will make life tough for the visitors, but at the end of the day, Lille should have the enough experience and talent to post the much-needed three points on the board.

How many goals can be expected?

Lille scored two or more goals in nine of their past eleven overall games, and did the same in four of the past five h2h clashes too. At the same time, Auxerre scored five goals from their past two fixtures as well.

By the looks of things, a high-scoring affair is expected this weekend between the two teams.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Auxerre might be on the back foot this weekend in the Ligue 1, since their opponents are former champions Lille. But still consider the recent winning streak of the hosts. They scored five goals from their last two games, and are also on a three-fixture winning streak.

And with Lille failing to keep a clean sheet in six of their past seven road trips, chances are high for goals to come from either end of the pitch.

Auxerre vs Lille Prediction

Lille are former champions of the league, and are going after a top-tier finish this season as well. They recorded a 4-1 win in the reverse h2h fixture, and also have a 100% winning streak in h2h clashes in the past 13 years, barring three draws.

Auxerre used to be in the bottom-most tier of the league table before their recent surge in performances.

As things stand, Lille to Win should be a decent pick at 1.75 odd, especially with their European qualification at stake.

However, Auxerre are on a three-game winning streak, and are at home. They also scored five goals from their past two games. And most of all, the guests failed to keep a clean sheet in six of their past seven road trips.

Likely, the Both Teams to Score wager looks appealing at 1.90 odd.
