Lille to win
Fonseca will hope to start his tenure at Lille on a high. Although Lille lost some key players this summer, the hosts are the better team on paper and should be able to win this match.
Moreover, since the start of this century, Les Dogues have lost only four of their 22 French top division season openers (W9, D9).
Lille not to lose and Total goals under 3.5
The visitors were one of Ligue 2’s better teams and should be able to provide a test for Lille this Sunday. However, the gulf in quality between these sides should be plain to see.
It should be noted that Auxerre haven’t lost on the road in the league since November 2021(W7, D4).
Preliminary review and match prediction for Lille vs Auxerre
Lille failed to defend their Ligue 1 title last season, as they found themselves in tenth place. Things didn’t go to plan for Les Dogues. They were a shadow of their former self.
Earlier this summer, Lille appointed Paulo Fonseca as their new coach, with the Portuguese signing a two-year contract.
Fonseca has an arduous task: to build a new and ambitious side that will compete with the top teams. However, Lille management need to find replacements for some key players; Sven Botman, who joined Newcastle, Renato Sanches, who has already signed a contract with PSG and Amadou Onana, who is expected to depart this month.

On the other hand, the newly promoted Auxerre sealed their return to the French top flight for the first time in the last 10 years as they won a two-legged playoff on penalties against Saint-Étienne.
Nevertheless, a tough season awaits Auxerre, as the club are yet to make quality transfers, bolstering the squad with free agents.
