This is it! PSG could be crowned Ligue 1 champion for a record 11th time on Sunday with at least a draw at relegation-threatened Auxerre should Lens fail to win at Lorient earlier in the day. As expected, the Parisians dominate the Ligue 1 lines, while the home side must win to avoid falling into the relegation zone.
Auxerre: Home Sweet Home
Last weekend, Auxerre suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Stade Brestois. The club won possession with 55% but failed to convert that into scoring chances. Jeremy Le Douaron scored the lone goal in the 69th minute in one of Brestois’ 10 shots on target.
Auxerre has been playing somewhat better at home, with a 5-7-5 record, without a loss in its last seven matches and not conceding more than one goal.
Most recently, at home, it drew 1-1 to Clermont, but it managed to beat very good teams such as Nantes and Olympique Lyon before that.
Individually, M’Baye Niang and Nuno da Costa are the main reasons to consider including the home side in your Ligue 1 picks. Auxerre can’t even afford to draw, and both players are very talented sprinters that have scored five goals each.
PSG: No Hakimi
Unlike Auxerre, PSG had no trouble getting the three points a week ago. The Parisians crushed Ajaccio 5-0, as we predicted. Kylian Mbappe was named Man of the Match after scoring a brace. Fabian Ruiz and Achraf Hakimi also scored.
Hakimi won’t be available to face Auxerre because he was sent off in the 77th minute. PSG is 13-1-3 when playing on the road.
Lionel Messi returned after missing the previous two games due to suspension. With him and Mbappe on the field, PSG will always be a competitive side, no matter what. In addition, manager Christophe Galtier is being questioned. If they want to show him some support, they’ll destroy Auxerre.
PSG is the top-scoring team in the league with 84 goals, that’s 2.4 goals per game. Plus, it also ows the second-best defensive unit, allowing 35 goals. Only Lens has conceded less, with 27. Now, it’s easy to understand why the visitors control the Ligue 1 odds.
Auxerre vs PSG Head-to-Head
PSG won the first meeting between the two 5-0. Kylian Mbappe, Carlos Soler, Achraf Hakimi, Renato Sanches and Hugo Ekitike were the scorers.
However, we’re talking about an even series, at least in their last 10 encounters. PSG won five, while Auxerre won three. During that span, the total went over six times. The total for Sunday’s clash is set at three goals, with the over offering a -110 price, which could further improve via Ligue 1 live betting.

Auxerre vs PSG Picks and Picks and Prediction
After failing to win the UEFA Champions League, PSG wants to win the Ligue 1 title as soon as possible. Mbappe currently leads the Golden Boot race with 26 goals, one more than Alexandre Lacazette. He’s going to destroy Auxerre’s defensive unit to increase the gap. Therefore, include the Parisians’ handicap in your Ligue 1 betting ticket, which offers a much better price and a lower risk.
