AS Nancy Lorraine
AS Nancy Lorraine won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 2-1 Ligue 2 defeat in their last game at the hands of SM Caen.
For AS Nancy Lorraine, goals were scored by Kenny Rocha Santos (27') and Sega Coulibaly (30' Own goal). Nicholas Gioacchini (94') scored for SM Caen.
It has been all too rare in recent times where AS Nancy Lorraine have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Les Chardons have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 6 goals during that time.
Analysis of their past results shows that AS Nancy Lorraine:
- have not beaten ESTAC in their previous 3 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches at home.
Last time out, ESTAC drew 2-2 in the Ligue 2 match with Chambly Oise.
For ESTAC, the goals were scored by Alimami Gory (2') and Yoann Touzghar (44'). Joris Correa (25') and Lassana Doucouré (81') scored for Chambly Oise.
A run of hard-working displays by the ESTAC defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 clashes in total. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 9. That kind of pattern might not follow through here, however.
Pre-game facts show that ESTAC:
- have not registered a win against AS Nancy Lorraine in away games against them for the last 9 league matches. A very poor run of away results.
- have not been beaten by AS Nancy Lorraine in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.

Team News: AS Nancy Lorraine
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the AS Nancy Lorraine boss Jean-Louis Garcia to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Mehdi Merghem (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: ESTAC
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there is only the sole fitness problem for the ESTAC boss Laurent Battles to be concerned with. Stone Mambo (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re thinking that AS Nancy Lorraine will need to apply a lot of pressure to register a score against this ESTAC lineup who we reckon should manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 0-1 victory for ESTAC at full-time.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
