Prince Gouano (Virus Infection), Eddy Gnahoré (Unknown Injury) and Gaoussou Traoré (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be able to play for Amiens gaffer Oswald Tanchot.
Team News: EA Guingamp
In an otherwise available squad, there is only the one fitness problem for the EA Guingamp gaffer Frédéric Bompard to be concerned with. Félix Eboa Eboa (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that EA Guingamp and Amiens could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of this one.
