Auxerre vs Nantes – Fans of AJ Auxerre will hope for a repetition of their previous performance, which was a 0-3 Ligue 1 triumph over AC Ajaccio.

AJ Auxerre had 43% of the possession in that game and 11 shots on goal with 4 of them being successful. Birama Touré and Nuno Joia da Costa scored for AJ Auxerre in the third and sixth minutes, respectively.

AC Ajaccio, their adversaries, had 9 shots at goal with 2 of them being on target. For AC Ajaccio, an own goal was scored by Mickael Alphonse (45′).

Their most recent results show that the AJ Auxerre backline deserves a lot of respect. In their last six games, AJ Auxerre have been extremely stingy, allowing just three goals to get past their keeper.

Nevertheless, we’ll just have to wait and see if this tendency continues in this game. According to their prior performance, AJ Auxerre has lost all four of their league games to Nantes.

They have won all four of their prior home league games. Nantes and Monaco played in Ligue 1 and tied 2-2 in their previous encounter. Nantes had 49% of the possession in that game and 2 of their 9 shots on goal were successful.

Mostafa Mohamed (65′) and Ludovic Blas (78′) scored goals for Nantes. 10 of Monaco’s 16 shots on goal were on goal. Monaco scored goals through Axel Disasi (21′) and Eliot Matazo (30′).

The numbers speak for themselves; in 5 of their previous 6 games, Nantes have allowed goals, allowing their opponents to score a total of 12 goals against them. Nantes can probably become more effective on defense. Nantes had lost its last three league games on the road coming into this match.

Auxerre vs Nantes – Betting Analysis

A review of their previous meetings, which date back to September 8, 2008, reveals that AJ Auxerre has won two of them and Nantes has won three, with one match ending in a draw.

They scored a total of 18 goals together during this time, with 8 from AJA and 10 from Les Canaris. 3.0 goals have been scored on average per contest.

It’s a low absence rate, and AJ Auxerre manager Christophe Pélissier just has one fitness issue to deal with because his team is nearly at full strength. Elisha Owusu is out with a strained hamstring.

Ionut Radu, Rayan Raveloson, Jubal, Julian Jeanvier, Akim Zedadka, Han-Noah Massengo, Birama Toure, Kenji-Van Boto, Gauthier Hein, Gaetan Perrin, and Nuno da Costa are possible starters for AJA in a 3-4-2-1 configuration.

The Nantes manager, Antoine Kombouaré, has no fitness concerns whatsoever going into this game because he has a completely injury-free roster to choose from.

Our speculation is that Les Canaris will start the match with a 4-2-3-1 system, starting with Andy Delort, Moussa Sissoko, Samuel Moutoussamy, Moussa Centonze, J. Castelletto, Andrei Girotto, Sébastien Corchia, and Evann Guessand.

We believe Nantes are dangerous enough to get through this AJ Auxerre lineup’s defense, however it might not be as many as the goals that they could allow.
