Strasbourg vs Auxerre
French Ligue 1

Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).

Strasbourg and Auxerre are lock on 23 points going into their Matchday No 28 clash on Sunday afternoon at Stade de la Meinau.

Both outfits pulled off big results last weekend, holding the likes of Marseille and Rennes to draws respectively in the previous round.

Auxerre extended their unbeaten streak to six straight games in the league. They have tightened things up defensively of late, shipping only a single goal in the previous three Ligue 1 affairs.

Just one of the last six matches Chris Pelissier’s men played in the league saw three or more goals scored.

We expect the visitors to try and keep this a low-scoring game on Sunday, knowing that way they would have a chance to prolong the undefeated streak.

Strasbourg, on the other side, head into this winless in three successive league outings. They got super-lucky to bag two late goals and avoid a defeat against ten-man Marseille last weekend at Orange Velodrome.

The team led by Frederic Antonetti have just 2 wins in 14 league games on the home patch this term. Four of their last six league outings ended with fewer than three goals scored.

Strasbourg vs Auxerre Head-to-head

  • The outfits have 12 wins apiece going into their 31st meeting.
  • Auxerre celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory in the reverse outing played back at the start of the season, in late-August last year at Stade de l’Abbe Deschamps.
  • All but one of the previous six head to head affairs finished with fewer than three goals scored.

Strasbourg vs Auxerre Prediction

Auxerre are undefeated in six successive league matches, while Strasbourg have only managed 2 wins in 14 Ligue 1 outings at Stade de la Meinau this term. We just have to take the attractive 1.83 odds offered for Auxerre to continue their unbeaten streak and leave the place without a loss.

Since this is a huge relegation six-pointer, we don’t expect either manager to take unnecessary risks, meaning we should not witness a high-scoring scenario. The Under 2.5 goals FT bet is paid at the 1.66 odds.

Strasbourg vs Auxerre Betting Tips

  • Auxerre to Win or Draw @ 1.83 (5/6)
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66 (4/6) odd.
