📰 Team News: Nantes

The Nantes boss Antoine Kombouaré doesn’t have any fitness worries at all ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection. Fábio will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

It seems likely that Les Canaris may well kick off with a 3-4-2-1 system in the match, utilising Alban Lafont, J. Castelletto, Nicolas Pallois, Andrei Girotto, Dennis Appiah, Quentin Merlin, Pedro Chirivella, Samuel Moutoussamy, Ludovic Blas, Moses Simon and Mostafa Mohamed.

📰 Team News: RC Lens

RC Lens boss Franck Haise has a number of players out of action. Wuilker Fariñez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Wesley Saïd (Muscle Injury) and Jonathan Gradit (Collarbone fracture) will not be playing here. Deiver Machado cannot play in this game through suspension.

We reckon that Les Artésiens might make use of a 3-4-2-1 formation using Brice Samba, Massadio Haidara, Kevin Danso, Facundo Medina, Jimmy Cabot, P. Frankowski, Salis Abdul Samed, Seko Fofana, David Costa, Florian Sotoca and Ikoma Lois Openda.

🧠 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that RC Lens and Nantes might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.

Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 0-0 scoreline when all is said and done.

Our expert partners are tipping under 3.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
