Auxerre vs Lille
Football prediction today for Auxerre vs Lille (3/4:0): 0-2
When pushed against the wall, Auxerre has shown strong resistance to fight for survival. Currently, Les Canaris have won three consecutive matches in Ligue 1 when facing direct competitors (Nantes, Ajaccio and Strasbourg).
Further away, Auxerre has lost only once in their last 10 matches in the French Ligue 1 and won five (while in the previous 21 rounds, they only won three). Therefore, the East France team has not only escaped the relegation zone but also created a three-point gap. The door to stay in the highest league of the country is slowly opening for this newcomer.
At home at Stade de l'Abbé-Deschamps, Auxerre has not lost in their last 5 rounds in Ligue 1 (winning 3 on score and winning all 5 on the ratio). However, in the next round, coach Pelissier and his team will face a big challenge named Lille, the team that destroyed them 4-1 in the first leg of the season (August 2022).
Compared to then, Lille is equally formidable now. Besides the professional gap between the two teams, Lille has slightly better form: winning 6 out of the last 10 rounds at the national arena (losing 2). At this time, Les Dogues are in 5th place (qualified for the Europa Conference League next season) on the table.

However, Lille always plays poorly away from home this season. The evidence is that they lost to the bottom team Angers (just officially relegated) in their recent away match, and Lille has won only 6 out of 15 away matches since the beginning of the Ligue 1 2022/23 season.
Nevertheless, the point of concern is that in those matches, Lille only accepted a handicap of more than 1/2 once (against Angers, who was too poor). In the next match, the handicap is 3/4, despite the fact that the home team Auxerre is playing well overall and at home. This odds is enough to confidently trust Lille.
