Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Lorient double chance
Odds: 8/15 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their stellar run of form on Friday night, a high-flying Lorient will make the trip to Auxerre when this weekend’s Ligue 1 fixtures get underway.
Starting with the hosts, while Auxerre might have stunned many across France as they clinched a maiden Ligue 1 campaign this summer, the Burgundy-based outfit have come crashing back down to earth over the past fortnight. Despite opening the 2022/23 season with an eye-catching run of form that saw them muster seven points from their opening three top-flight matchups, Jean-Marc Furlan’s men have failed to build off of that early flurry. Last seen putting in a nightmare display as they were hit with a dreadful 5-0 drumming away at Rennes, the Whites have now lost each of their last three Ligue 1 matchups on the spin. Likewise, losing those three consecutive appearances by an aggregate score of 9-1, Auxerre could be in for another stern test at the Stade de l’Abbé-Deschamps.
As for the visitors, although Auxerre might find themselves in the midst of a worrying recent blip, Les Merlus have only continued on a real early-season romp. Last seen putting in another action-packed display as they picked up a 3-2 victory at home against Nantes, Régis Le Bris’ men have gained a host of plaudits from across Ligue 1. Opening this weekend’s sat fourth in the table and with their sights set on mounting a shock European charge, Friday’s guests have now won each of their last three outings on the spin. With their stellar run of form highlighted by a 3-1 romp against Lyon earlier in the month, Lorient have really caught the eye with their free-scoring displays in the final third. Likewise, claiming a 1-0 victory when they last faced off against Auxerre back in 2019, we’re backing an away double chance here.
Bet: Lorient double chance against Auxerre 8/15 for Friday’s Ligue 1 matchup @ 888sport
