Team News: ESTAC
Hyun-jun Suk (Calf Injury) and Lenny Pintor (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing for Troyes gaffer Laurent Battles.
Team News: EA Guingamp
Thanks to a largely available squad, there is just the one fitness worry for the EA Guingamp boss Frédéric Bompard to contend with. Félix Eboa Eboa (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
In our view, ESTAC are likely to be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, EA Guingamp may well find it hard to score a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a 3-1 margin for ESTAC at the end of the match.
