Out of a mainly healthy squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Valenciennes FC manager Jorge Maciel to be concerned with. Nassim Innocenti (Cruciate ligament strain) won’t be in action.
We envisage that Valenciennes FC have the capability to breach the defence of this Quevilly-Rouen side, although it might not be enough to prevent defeat.
We reckon that it will be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for Quevilly-Rouen at full-time. There looks to be little in this one.
