Preview, Auxerre vs Lille Lineups, and Team News

Auxerre

The feeling in Auxerre's locker room at this point is nothing short of terrific. The players are optimistic that they can save themselves from relegation, especially after winning three games in a row. Their form when playing in front of the home fans is what drove this transformation in form and they will try to build on it for the next games that will follow. The hosts are without injured Han-Noah Massengo, Gideon Mensah, and Elisha Owusu for this match.

Probable lineup: Leon, Toure, Jubal, Jeanvier, Zedadka, Toure, M'Changama, Raveloson, Perrin, Hein, Da Costa.

Lille

The guest side will be wary of facing another tricky opponent, especially after losing to Angers a couple of weeks ago. But, their efforts to sustain the fifth spot in the Ligue 1 standings are what makes this team believe they could capture a guest win at a place where they haven't played in 12 years. Lille has Adam Ounas and Tiago Djalo out through injury.

Probable lineup: Chevalier, Gudmundsson, Alexsandro, Fonte, Weah, And. Gomes, Bamba, Andre, Ang. Gomes, Cabella, David.
