Odds to Bet On | Saturday’s France Ligue 1 fixtures
Odds To Bet On covers the five big European leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1) and have already previewed Saturday’s Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A clashes, so Ligue 1 is next. There are two games in France (Auxerre v Lille, Lens v AS Monaco), so Odds To Bet On has used Oddschecker to get the best returns.
Auxerre v Lille
Auxerre are underdogs ahead of their clash with Lille as they are nine places and 23 points adrift of the visitors in the table, but they come into Saturday’s game off the back of three consecutive wins.
The hosts have been strong in their own backyard too, winning three and drawing two of their last five games at the Stade Abbe Deschamps, so they might fancy their chances of causing an upset.
As for Lille, the visitors are battling for a Europa League place, sitting two points ahead of sixth place. Les Dogues are coming off the back of three wins from their last four games while boasting, but they haven’t been as flawless on the road.
Lille have two wins, two draws and one defeat from their last five away outings, so they are fallible. But the visitors thrashed Auxerre 4-1 earlier in the season, so they’ll still be slim favourites with bookmakers.
Lille have a good head-to-head record against Auxerre too, boasting four wins and two draws from their last seven clashes. It’s also worth noting that Auxerre haven’t beaten Lille in the league at the Stade Pierre Mauroy since 2010, so they’ll be determined to end 13 years of failure.
Auxerre are 4/1 to win with Unibet, Auxerre and Lille are 3/1 to draw with Bet 365, and Lille are 8/11 to win with QuinnBet.
Lens v AS Monaco
Third plays fourth in Ligue 1 with Lens hosting Monaco on Saturday, but it’s an incredibly tough game to call. Lens are one place and two points better off in the table than the visitors while boasting four wins from their last five games and having three wins from their previous four home outings, but Monaco are in fine form themselves.
The visitors are coming off the back of three wins from their last four games and have lost only once away from home all season. Monaco have won five and drawn four of their last nine games on the road, so they should be able to match Lens. This side have taken four points off Paris Saint-Germain and drew at Marseille back in January, so they’re clearly no slouches.
The visitors were thrashed by Lens at home earlier in the season, however, so the hosts will be favourites to do the double on the weekend. Their head-to-head record is impressive too, boasting three wins and two draws from their last six clashes, but Monaco’s equally impressive form should make Saturday’s game a close encounter.
Lens are 10/9 to win with Betfair, Lens and Monaco are 19/7 to draw with VBet, and Monaco are 27/11 to win with VBet.
