Tip Auxerre - Saint Etienne

Prediction published on May 23, 2022 at 10:15 PM

Auxerre are charging for a place in Ligue 1 and after beating Sochaux on post-match penalties, they have the chance to square up against Saint-Etienne in a two-legged promotion/relegation playoff. Auxerre finished third in Ligue 2 and have shown great ambition in their push for a return to the topflight. They will be looking to give this a great start as they play the first leg at home, on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run. In those nine matches, they have six wins, and to book their ticket here, they saw off Sochaux on penalties after a 0-0 draw. That draw marked the first time Auxerre failed to score in 18 matches. At home, they are unbeaten in the last five matches, and have three clean sheets. In 19 home league games this season, Auxerre have suffered just four losses and this is a run that should give them confidence going into this game.

A 1-1 draw with Nantes on the final day of Ligue 1, coupled with Metz’s heavy loss to PSG meant Saint-Etienne survived automatic relegation. They will be looking to claw their way in here, but their recent run suggests they will be underdogs in this. In their final six league matches, Saint-Etienne managed just two points, in draws with Bordeaux and Nantes. They have just one win in the last 11 matches and have lost six of their last nine. Their scoring run is good though; in the last 10 games, Saint-Etienne have failed to score in just one, but they have no clean sheet in 10 matches. Four times in the last five matches, they have conceded two or more goals and away from home, they head to this game without a win in the last seven. They’ve lost four of those seven.
