First setback for AJA Pablo Correa! Unbeaten since the arrival of the Uruguayan technician at the head of the first team, the Burgundians have lost the general surprise in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, at home against a formation of Herbiers which evolves however upstairs inferior. If the emblematic coach of AS Nancy Lorraine had largely made his starting lineup, an elimination on the score of 3-0 is a surprise. The Auxerre goal certainly resided in this crucial championship match against Nimes on Monday. Second in the championship, the Crocos remain on a series of negative results and will have to recover to stay on the podium. Open meeting in perspective!
Our Bet Explained
Since the arrival of Pablo Correa, Auxerre remains on 5 wins, 2 draws, and therefore 1 defeat in the Coupe de France against Herbiers, all competitions. AJA is a fit team!
Above all, the Auxerrois had scored 17 goals in 7 games, and 3 goals or more four times before this match. The attack is in full confidence!

Our prediction Auxerre Nimes Olympique
Nimes just lost in Le Havre and Gazélec, before beating at home on Ajaccio. The Crocos have the advantage of bookmakers, but the AJA has every chance. Goals on both sides and at least 3 on the scoreboard for a very nice score of 2.05!
