Team News

  • Ajaccio will be without Ricardo Faty for a month, after the midfielder underwent surgery on an ankle injury.
  • David Oberhauser has a knee problem, and Damien Tiberi is unavailable due to a groin complaint.
  • Carl Medjani and Mehdi Mostefa are at the African Cup of Nations with Algeria, Fousseni Diawara and Sigamary Diarra are both with the Malian squad and Chahir Belghazouani has joined up with Morocco.
  • Valenciennes will be without Gael Danic, who is set for a long spell on the sidelines with a broken leg.
  • Striker Gregory Pujol has a calf problem, while Pape Abdou Camara, Mody Traore, Dusan Djuric are all still out.
  • Benjamin Angoua also misses out after being called up to the Ivory Coast squad for the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Ajaccio will look to build on their fantastic draw against Paris Saint-Germain when they take on Valenciennes at the Stade Francois Coty.
  • The Corsicans held out to secure a battling stalemate at the Parc Des Princes, and they should be confident of earning another positive result against a Valenciennes side that was decimated by Nice at the weekend.
  • Les Atheniens fell to a 5-0 defeat on the Cote D'Azur, and manager Daniel Sanchez will hope that his new signings Lindsay Rose and Maor Melikson can have an instant impact and turn their fortunes around.
  • Ajaccio are always a tough nut to crack in front of their home fans and with Valenciennes likely to be eager not to lose following the hammering at Nice, a draw is perhaps the most likely outcome.
