Team News: Sochaux
Looking at personnel, there is just a single fitness concern for the Sochaux gaffer Omar Daf to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. Yann Kitala (Tibia Fracture) is out of contention.
Team News: Paris FC
From a largely healthy group of players, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Paris FC manager René Girard to be concerned about. Lamine Diaby-Fadiga (Thigh Problems) won’t be playing here.
Our feeling is that Paris FC and Sochaux may well both score, with little between these two teams.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. Therefore, we predict a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of this one.
