Looking at their form, and Châteauroux have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 12 goals in total. Defensively, Châteauroux seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, however.

- remain undefeated by AJ Auxerre when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 8 league matches. Very poor, indeed.

Team News: AJ Auxerre
AJ Auxerre manager Jean-Marc Furlan has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all before this match with a completely injury-free squad available to select from. Aly Ndom cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Châteauroux
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is only a single fitness problem for the Châteauroux boss Benoît Cauet to contend with. Chaker Alhadhur (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
In our view, AJ Auxerre will probably be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
At the same time, Châteauroux may well struggle to find the back of the net although we do think that they will probably end up managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
Our tip is for a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for AJ Auxerre at the end of the match.
