Team News

  • Nancy will be without Jordan Loties for three weeks due to a toe injury.
  • Fouad Rachid is out with a leg injury, while Jean Landry Bassilekin has an ankle problem.
  • Lorient are set to be without a number of first-team players once again.
  • Benjamin Corgnet is out due to a thigh injury, while Arnaud Le Lan has a back complaint.
  • Mathieu Coutadeur is still a fitness doubt but, Lucas Mareque and Bruno Ecuele Manga are set to return.
  • Alain Traore and Jacques-Alaixys Romao are both on African Cup of Nations duty.

Prediction

  • Nancy take on Lorient at the Stade Marcel Picot hoping to try and lift themselves off the bottom of the Ligue 1 table after slipping to another defeat last weekend.
  • Les Chardons fell to a 2-1 loss at Toulouse, and suffered even more disappointment later in the week as the highly rated Massadio Haidara departed for Newcastle United. Striker Simon Zenke has also left the club as Nancy try and improve their finances.
  • Still their frugal approach is unlikely to reap many benefits on the pitch, and Lorient will go into the game as favourites following their 3-2 win over Troyes last weekend.
  • Expect Les Merlus to dominate proceedings and with defenders Bruno Ecuele Manga and Lucas Mareque returning to the fray, Lorient should have enough at both ends of the pitch to take victory.
