Date: Friday, 15th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Abbé-Deschamps (Auxerre).
AJA is very much out of relegation and will be playing with comfort and freedom. Pablo Correa and his troops play the physical game and concede cheap fouls to disturb the opposition. They are rock solid at the back, as they conceded only 20 goals this season. Misfortune and lack of quality players up front have dented their chances to creep up the table.
Clermont Foot 63 are eying for a playoffs spot, as they sit just outside the Top 6. Pascal Gastien and his troop are solid at the back, conceding 0.8 goals per game. But the things have taken a -turn, as they suffered back-to-back defeats.
Creating chances using through ball and playing through the middle of the park has been their style of play. Florian Aye has been the main weapon up front, as he scored 11 and assisted another 3.
