Auxerre vs. Strasbourg predictions for Sunday’s Ligue 2 clash at Stade de l'Abbe Deschamps. AJA look to use the visitors’ poor spell of form on the road and secure any points at home. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Auxerre vs. Strasbourg Betting Tips
Strasbourg travel to Auxerre for their Matchday 30 clash on the back of a comfortable 4-1 win over fellow top 2 chasers which saw them just three points behind the top three (where Lens, Reims, and Brest all have 49 points earned in 29 matches). Although they’ll now be motivated to build on the success and break into the league’s top 2, we’ve witnessed a poor series of performances and results on the road recently and we don’t see them snatching all three points at Stade de l’Abbe Deschamps.
Auxerre have earned just a goalless draw at Laval last week and thus ended their three-match losing streak, also reiterating their woes on the road. However, their home form has been more stable and only keeps them outside the relegation zone, as we’ve seen them earn five wins and two draws in their last ten games there. We’ll now back them to hold the visitors to a draw, which comes at an eye-catching 21/10 with BetVictor
The home side have indeed looked better on both ends of the pitch in front of the home fans, and with Le Racing scoring goals but struggling to bag points, this looks set to be a very narrow matchup.
Despite their poor form away from home, the visitors have failed to score on just two or their last ten trips and we now also fancy both sides to find the net. A Yes on Both teams to score looks a very solid bet to get behind at Evens with bet365
, especially for those keeping faith we’re in for a draw.
Auxerre vs. Strasbourg Stats
Strasbourg have bagged the home points in their last head-to-head encounter against Auxerre, earning a 2-1 win in October, but we are used to more confident home displays. They haven’t been able to earn a win at Stade de l’Abbe Deschamps since 2000, though, and we’ve seen AJA outclass them in Coupe de la Ligue (2-0) at this ground in August.
We thus don’t see a win for the visitors coming on the day, either, and we’ll go for a 1-1 correct score prediction which can be backed at a good-looking 5/1 with Ladbrokes
