Team News: USL Dunkerque
The USL Dunkerque manager Mathieu Chabert will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash with a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Rodez
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is only the one fitness worry for the Rodez manager Didier Santini to be concerned about. Éric Vandenabeele (Fibula Fracture) misses out for this game.
We feel that over the course of the game, Rodez could well find it tough to find the net against this USL Dunkerque side who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore tipping a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for USL Dunkerque at full-time.
Looking forward to this.
