We expect both teams to find the net in this game. They are in great form, so backing BTTS is a good bet with a good price. Only two of the last six meetings didn’t yield goals on both sides.
Auxerre to score first
We expect Auxerre to find the net first in this game. The visitors boast a better scoring run in recent games than Caen. They have been the first to score in most meetings, so a similar outcome shouldn’t be a surprise in this game.
This will be a tense match. It has always been the case, evidenced by the eight draws in the last twenty meetings. As both teams battle for supremacy against each other after a 2-2 in the reverse game, we think they will settle for the spoils at the end of the day.
Caen vs Auxerre Ligue 2 Preview and Match Analysis
Eight draws in 20 meetings shows just what it would take to win this game between Caen and Auxerre. Even more telling is the fact that the last four meetings all ended draw. And with both teams in good form, this will be a game to watch for some dram as Auxerre battles for stability in top three.
Caen is safe from relegation with four games to go. Promotion playoffs are also not achievable for Caen because they need 15 points and we have four games to play, so that leaves then three points short of the target even if they win the remaining games. So, expect the hosts to play for supremacy in this duel, in which case, a draw would be welcomed.
Auxerre is safely tucked in the race to playoffs. While they are only three points above fifth place, there is a general belief that their top five placs is assured even if they lose one of the remaining four games. However, direct promotion is very much within Auxerre’s vision. The visitors are three points shy of the second place, so a win in this game will be huge for the visitors. We don’t think Auxerre will afford to lose this match.
