After 12 games in the competition, the Maroons look comfortable at the top. They have won 9 games this season and lost twice and are one of the most complete teams in the league.

In the last 6 games, they have lost 3 while winning 2 as well. Four of those games had more than 2.5 goals in total.

At home, they have won 5 of the 7 games from all competitions and also over 2.5 goals came in 5 of those games too.

Auxerre hit rock bottom at the start of the season. They are in the relegation zone with 3 wins in 12 games and tend to lose more games. In the previous 8 games from all competitions, they lost 4 and has only 1 win.

AJA is on an active 4 game losing streak and have won only 1 game in 5 games on the road.

Metz is surely favorited going into this game and possibly will continue their dominance in the table. But if they lose or draw they may lose the top spot depending on the results of Lens and Brest.

Metz vs Auxerre: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • In the recent 4 competitive h2h matches both sides have 2 wins each.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches.
  • In last 5 h2h played at Metz Auxerre leads with 3 wins, and the home side won the remaining games. In 3 of those 5 matches over 2.5 goals came in 3 games.

Metz vs Auxerre: Prediction

Metz have to win this match for avoiding the threat from Brest and Lens who are just 2 points behind them. And possibly on the back of 4 game losing streak of the visitors on the road, the Maroons have an advantage on paper. So a bet on the home side to win can be placed with 1.67 odd.

The hosts have the firepower to break any defense, which they have proven many times this year. Apart from the loss against Le Havre they have scored and at least 2 goals in all other games at home. With Auxerre conceding 16 goals it is clear that they are easy to break down. So we can expect a big score this Monday and bet on a score of over 2.5 goals with 2.20 odd.

Metz vs Auxerre: Betting Tips

  • Metz to win @ 1.67 (2/3).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 2.20 (6/5).
