Team News: AJ Auxerre
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the AJ Auxerre boss Jean-Marc Furlan to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Ousoumane Camara (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
Team News: Niort
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Niort manager Sébastien Desabre to contend with. Mathieu Michel (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
When taking all factors into account, AJ Auxerre will most probably score at least once when they come up against Niort, who won’t find it easy to score themselves.
