Their more recent scorelines show that much respect should be given to the Paris FC backline. PFC have been stingy, resulting in the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their last six games standing at 1.
Analysis of their past results shows that Paris FC:
- haven't beaten ESTAC in their previous 2 league matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 9 league matches at home. A run that they'll hope to extend here.

Team News: Paris FC
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Paris FC boss René Girard to contend with due to a largely intact squad. Lamine Diaby-Fadiga (Thigh Problems) misses out.
Team News: ESTAC
Troyes boss Laurent Battles has to currently contend with reduced team options. Hyun-jun Suk (Calf Injury) and Lenny Pintor (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
We feel that ESTAC and Paris FC could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
