20 minutes left

What a huge opportunity to kill games for Hein
Gauthier Hein missed the ball from two to zero. With a failed raise from Mangala, Auxerre’s wingman went deep and knocked out Saint-Etienne’s defender, who was trying to catch up. He continues with the shot, but missed. What a huge opportunity for the Burgundians.
Nice expectation from Leon

Moukoudi’s failed pass
Like this failed pass from Moukoudi, this beginning of the second third of the Greens has completely passed.

What a goal from Sakhi
Great goal from Auxerroise, who unblocked the situation at Geoffroy-Guichard. At the great center of Autret, Sakhi projects to the Saint-Etienne area and places a noble header, which lobbies Bernardoni.
Khazri lacks recovery
A wonderful trick by Wuxbi Khazri that left Auxerre bewildered really deserved to end in a goal but the keeper made a fine save.

Nice trip from Bernardoni
