Auxerre Costil, Pereira, Jubal, Jeanvier, Bernard, Toure, Hein, M’Changama, Sakhi, Autret, and Charnonnier are the predicted lineup.
It doesn’t get much better in terms of player selection, with just one fitness issue despite an otherwise strong collection of players for AJ Auxerre manager Jean-Marc Furlan. Théo Pellenard will not play due to a torn knee ligament.
This time, in our opinion, AJA could use a 4-2-3-1 configuration with Benoit Costil, Paul Joly, Jubal, Alexandre Coeff, Gideon Mensah, Birama Toure, Hamza Sakhi, Lassine Sinayoko, Rayan Raveloson, Mathias Autret, and Mbaye Niang.
Régis Le Bris, manager of FC Lorient, has no fitness concerns going into this game because his team is fully healthy and prepared.
Yvon Mvogo, Gédéon Kalulu, Montassar Talbi, Julien Laporte, Vincent Le Goff, Bonke Innocent, Laurent Abergel, Enzo Le Fée, Stephane Diarra, Terem Moffi, and Dango Ouattara are possible candidates for Les Merlus’ 4-3-3 formation.
