**The odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing**

The hosts will be the first on the score sheet

We are tipping Auxerre to find the net first in this Ligue 2 fixture. They have a stronger defence than the visitors, especially in the last five games. Moreover, Auxerre has not lost in five games now and will be keen to keep the unbeaten run going with the home support to their advantage. The visitors recovered from back to back losses to get a narrow 1-0 win against Guingamp but could face a major test in this trip to Auxerre.

Both teams will be on the score sheet

Backing goals on both ends is our second tip for Auxerre vs Sochaux. The hosts are fourth while Sochaux is fifth on the table. Only a point is the difference between the Ligue 1 tames and so, a competitive game is expected when both sides lock horns on Saturday. Moreover, the hosts have 6W, 4D and 3L at home so far, which is the same away record for Sochaux away from home before this game.

Under 2.5

A few goals are expected in this Ligue 2 game. Both teams are in a battle for top five, which will see them participate in the playoffs. With that, there possibility of these teams sharing the spoils in a game that could end 1-1 is high.

Auxerre vs Sochaux Betting Preview and Match Analysis

Auxerre and Sochaux will be locked in a battle for promotion to the French top flight. Interestingly, the hosts have so far recorded  6W, 4D and 3L at home in 13 games, which is the same run of results for Sochaux in as many away games before this weekend fixture.

But when we review the form of these teams, the hosts have the advantage to score an early goal as they a stronger defensively and have a winning mentality compared to Sochaux that has been mostly shaky.

Sochaux comes to this game with 2W, 1D and 2L in the last five matches. It is their only losses in the last ten games across all competitions. The hosts lost thrice in their last ten games. A strong resurgence has, however, handed Auxerre five-match unbeaten run, which we believe will be easier to extend in this home fixture.
