AS Nancy Lorraine
AS Nancy Lorraine will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 2-3 Ligue 2 victory over Dijon.
For AS Nancy Lorraine, goals were scored by Yeni N'Gbakoto (53', 76') and Antonin Bobichon (62'). Senou Coulibaly (5') and Bruno Ecuele Manga (78') scored for Dijon.
It has not been often in recent games where AS Nancy Lorraine have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that AS Nancy Lorraine have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 12 goals in the process. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, however.
In the game prior to this, Pau FC drew 2-2 in the Ligue 2 match with Niort.
The only name on the scoresheet from Pau FC was Samuel Essende (16', 56'). Moataz Zemzemi (8') and Bilal Boutobba (31') scored for Niort.
The stats don’t lie, and Pau FC have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 13 goals in total. At the back, Pau FC have clearly had some problems.
Head to head
The last league match between the two was Ligue 2 match day 1 on 24/07/2021 when it finished Pau FC 2-1 AS Nancy Lorraine.

Team News: AS Nancy Lorraine
The AS Nancy Lorraine boss Albert Cartier has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go.
Team News: Pau FC
Pau FC manager Didier Tholot has to choose a team with limited availability. Steeve Beusnard (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Alexandre Olliero (Ankle Fracture) can’t be considered.
Our assessment here is that Pau FC will have a tough ask to register a score against this AS Nancy Lorraine side who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore seeing a narrow 1-0 advantage for AS Nancy Lorraine when the full-time whistle blows.
There should be little in it.
