Disappointing 11th in Ligue 2 last year despite an interesting recruitment, Auxerre has failed to live up to its ambitions. Never mind, the AJA hopes to perform well again this year. After missing out against Sochaux at the start of the season (0-2), Jean-Marc Furlan’s men reacted quickly enough by going to win with a short header on the lawn of Châteauroux before the break (1- 2).

On the Clermont side, we probably struggled to recover from the outcome of the last season. On an upward slope during the winter, the Auvergnats were stopped by the definitive interruption of the season and missed a great opportunity to climb to Ligue 1 or at least to play the play-offs by ranking at the 5th place, 2 points from the 2nd step of the podium. Back to competition, Pascal Planque’s men conceded 2 draws in the first two days against Caen (0-0) and Dunkirk (1-1).

The staff for AJ Auxerre vs Clermont Foot

Auxerre let go his attacking midfielder Barreto (Ajaccio), his replacement goalkeeper Boucher (without a club), his relatively little used striker Yattara (without a club) and his midfielder Adéoti (without a club) during the offseason. Conversely, the very good Autret (Brest), the Brest goalkeeper Léon, the former Lens striker Kevin Fortuné, the defender Gautier Lloris (Nice) and the Luxembourger Gauthier Hein (Metz) all put their bags in Burgundy. For this game, rookie Lloris, striker Sorgic and starting center-back Souprayen are all down. On top of that, the important Le Bihan, Léon and Touré are all suspended for this match.

In Clermont, the offensive sector lost a lot with the departure of the top scorer, the Austrian striker Adrian Grbic (17 goals), who left for Lorient. It will be the former Rennais, Jordan Tell, who will have the difficult task of making up for his departure, but it has been rather disappointing at the start of the season. In addition, he was injured and will be absent for a month. Otherwise, executives Mario Gonzalez (Villarreal), N’Diaye (Orléans), Dupé (goalkeeper) and Dionisa (Le Mans) also went to see if the grass was greener elsewhere. On the other hand, the center-forward Bayo, author of 12 goals with Dunkirk last year, is back. Note the absence of the defender replacing Jérome Phojo, struck by mononucleosis.

The probable compositions for Auxerre vs Clermont:

Auxerre: Brass – Arcus, Coeff, Bernard, Boto – Bellugou, Camara – Hein, Autret, Sakhi – Fortuné.
Clermont: Desmas – Zedadka, Ogier, Hountondji, N’Simba – Magnin, Gastien – Gomis, Berthomier, Allevinah – Bayo.
