Team News: Herbiers Vendée
The Herbiers Vendée manager Stephane Masala will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all before this match thanks to a fully injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Reims
From a largely healthy group, there is only the one fitness problem for the Reims gaffer Will Still to be concerned with. Thomas Foket (Hamstring Injury) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that Herbiers Vendée have the ability to score a goal against this Reims lineup, but a single goal possibly won’t quite be enough.
We can see a 1-2 winning margin for Reims at the end of the match. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
