Team News: ESTAC
Thierno Baldé (Cruciate ligament tear) and Renaud Ripart (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be able to play for ESTAC gaffer Patrick Kisnorbo.
Team News: EA Guingamp
EA Guingamp manager Stéphane Dumont has multiple availability issues to deal with. Lenny Vallier (Cruciate ligament tear) and Abdallah Ndour (Shin injury) will not be playing here.
Here is a game where ESTAC might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this EA Guingamp team who we reckon will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 advantage for EA Guingamp at the end of this one.
Should be a close one.
