Auxerre vs Lyon prediction, preview | Ligue 1 2022-23

In the match of the 24th round of the French Ligue 1, Auxerre will host Lyon at home. The match will take place on Friday, February 17, starting at 20:00 GMT.

Auxerre is fighting for survival this season, but so far unsuccessfully. The club is currently in 19th place with 15 points in the Ligue 1 standings.

Christophe Pelissier’s men are four points behind the last place, so the team needs to win. Auxerre finished the last two games of the championship in a draw – with Angers (1-1) and with Reims (0-0).

Auxerre has already been eliminated from the French Cup, but this is even a plus for the team, since now you can fully concentrate on the matches of the French championship.

Lyon in the current season of the French championship is a strong middle peasant. At the moment, Laurent Blanc’s wards are in 9th place in the standings with 35 points.

The club can compete for getting into European competition. Now they are only six points behind the fifth position, which will allow them to play in the Conference League next season, but they are unlikely to reach the Champions League, as the gap is 12 points.

Lyon, which also did not play in European competition this season, continues to fight for the French Cup. In recent matches, Lyon has gained good form and shows an excellent result.
