The two teams neutralized each other throughout regulation time and overtime, with all the same an overall domination of AJA against the Sochaux who had passed the first round on Tuesday against Paris FC (2-1). Auxerre will therefore face in a home and away match the 18th in Ligue 1 which will be known on Saturday evening at the end of the last day. It will be Metz, Saint-Etienne, or Bordeaux for the most improbable scenario.
At the end of the suspense, Auxerre therefore qualified for the Ligue 1 accession play-off in its Abbé-Deschamps stadium by winning on penalties at the expense of Sochaux (0-0 and 5-4 t.a.b.) in 2nd Ligue 2 pre-play-off round.
