Team News: Châteauroux
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Châteauroux gaffer Nicolas Usai to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Chaker Alhadhur (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
Team News: Sochaux
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Sochaux gaffer Omar Daf to be concerned about. Yann Kitala (Tibia Fracture) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, Sochaux and Châteauroux could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. That’s why we have predicted a very close game with a 1-1 score at the end of the 90 minutes.
