Team News

  • Bottom club Nancy are set to be without a trio of first-team players.
  • Fouad Rachid is out with a leg injury, Massadio Haidara has a groin problem, and Simon Zenke is expected to be absent with an ankle complaint.
  • However, there is some good news for the strugglers as Benjamin Moukandjo returns from suspension.
  • Valenciennes still have a number of injury concerns, but should be able to name an unchanged side to the one that beat Reims last weekend.
  • Pape Abdou Camara will be out for six months after rupturing a knee ligament, while Mody Traore is absent with an achilles injury.
  • Remi Gomis has a thigh injury, while Dusan Djuric and Kama Massampu are both out due to knee problems.

Prediction

  • Nancy take on Valenciennes still looking for their first win since the opening weekend of the campaign.
  • Jean Fernandez's men have been unable to put together any kind of form, but showed good team spirit to come from a goal down and earn a point against fellow strugglers Evian.
  • However, they may have their work cut out if they are to gain any kind of positive result this Saturday, as they face a Valenciennes' outfit that is just six points shy of league leaders Lyon.
  • The visitors are blessed with a plethora of attacking talent, and with the likes of Gael Danic, Foued Kadir and Mathieu Dossevi all in fine form, Les Atheniens should be able to overcome the men from Lorraine.
