The hosts to win
We are backing Auxerre to win this game. They are in a pole position to qualify for direct promotion with eight games to go. However, that will be difficult given that the competition in top five is tight. Staying in top five is the only way for Auxerre and with that , a second victory against struggling Valenciennes is our pick.
The hosts to score first
We expect Auxerre to register on the score sheet first. After a 5-match winning run, Auxerre suffered some setbacks in the last two games where they settled for a draw and a loss. Notably, they scored in the last ten games. The visitors didn’t score in two games from their last ten matches and didn’t have back to back wins within that time.
The hosts to be ahead at the interval
We are also backing Auxerre to win the first-half of this duel. Home support and a better form than Valenciennes are two important factors that will play to Auxerre’s advantage in this match.
