Niort prepare for this game following on from a 1-1 Ligue 2 draw vs Chambly Oise.
The only player to score from Niort was Antoine Baroan (84'). Thibault Jaques (42') was the scorer for Chambly Oise.
Niort haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting in each and every one of their last 6 games.
They’ve managed to rack up 6 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 8.
Analysis of their past results shows that Niort:

AS Nancy Lorraine
Last time out, AS Nancy Lorraine drew 2-2 in the Ligue 2 match with EA Guingamp.
The only name on the scoresheet from AS Nancy Lorraine was Mickaël Biron (63', 69'). Yannick Gomis (56') and Matthias Phaëton (92') scored for EA Guingamp.
Looking at their form, and AS Nancy Lorraine have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, conceding 9 goals overall. In defence, Les Chardons can certainly do much better. That trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, though.
Their previous form shows that AS Nancy Lorraine:
- haven't beaten Niort when they've played them away from home in the last 4 league matches. Not good.
- remain undefeated by Niort in away games against them for the last 8 league games. It really has been a happy hunting ground for them.
- are without a win away from home in their last 18 league matches. They clearly need to do something about it.
