Going into their upcoming encounter this coming Saturday, Troyes are looking to finish the day ahead of Auxerre in the Ligue 1 standings.

The most recent outing between Auxerre and Troyes ended up a 1-1 draw. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 27/11.

Auxerre vs Troyes Prediction

Auxerre Form

In the previous three games, Auxerre drew 1-1 with Nice, lost 0-0 against Rennes and 2-0 against Strasbourg. Auxerre only managed one meagre home win from a possible six at Stade de l'Abbe-Deschamps in the Ligue 1. They also drew two and lost three of these six encounters, in which they scored four and conceded 11 goals.

Troyes Form

Troyes have been a tad mediocre in their last three matches where a win has failed to come their way. Against Monaco, they gained a point in a 2-2 draw, before coming up short against Lorient, who ran out 2-0 winners. Lately, they managed to steal a point in a 2-2 with Brest. Troyes managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Ligue 1. On top of winning once they also drew zero as well as losing five, while scoring 19 time and letting in six.

Troyes and Auxerre seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues this coming Saturday, as we aim for both teams to score.

Auxerre won ten points from their last seven encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won two, scored seven and let in seven goals. Troyes earned two wins and nine points from their past seven matches against teams placed in the bottom six of the Ligue 1 table. They scored 12 and allowed 11 goals against on their way. Auxerre are looking at a record of five wins, eight draws and 15 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Troyes have four wins, nine draws and 15 defeats in the Ligue 1.
