Team News

  • Valenciennes have no new concerns, but will be without Gael Danic, who is set for a long spell on the sidelines with a broken leg.
  • Defender Gil and midfielder Remi Gomis are both still out, and they join Pape Abdou Camara, Mody Traore, Dusan Djuric and Kama Massampu in the treatment room.
  • Evian are set to be without a number of key players, with both Daniel Wass and Jonathan Mensah out through injury.
  • Cedric Barbosa is suspended, while Ali M'Madi and Kevin Berigaud are unavailable due to lack of fitness.

Prediction

  • Valenciennes welcome struggling Evian to the Stade du Hainaut following a difficult few weeks that have seen them fall from the upper echelons of the league to midtable.
  • Les Atheniens have won just one of their last six encounters in the league, but they can still finish the first half of the season on a high with a win over Pascal Dupraz's relegation threatened side.
  • Evian's confidence can hardly have been improved by their defeat at Nice last weekend, in which they threw away a two goal lead after goals from Yannick Sagbo and Cedric Barbosa.
  • However, that game did demonstrate that Les Roses do possess a threat in front of goal, and they will need to be at their best going forward against a stern Valenciennes defence.
  • Daniel Sanchez's men will likely dominate the contest, and with Evian possessing one of the leakiest defences in the division, the home side should be expected to ease to a comfortable win.
