LIGUE 1 AUXERRE - ST ETIENNE
Central defence is a key position and I love to oppose teams that are missing both players from this key position. Such is the case for St Etienne this evening, with Sall and Tavlaridid both out.
They have not scored in three starts and are very poor on the road, where they are 2-2-11 and have conceded a league high total of 27 goals.
Hosts could dispel any lingering relegation thoughts with a win and are in good form, having lost only to in form Marseille in their last six.
My only concern is the draw, Auxerre have drawn 5 of their last 10 and h2h wise, the last five meetings here, have ended all square. Therefore, I will take a small saver on that result.
7 points Auxerre -1/4 ball asian line 1.83
1.5 points draw 3.10 general quote.
