Valenciennes vs Bastia Lineups and Team News

Valenciennes

Valenciennes recorded a third consecutive draw last weekend when holding off Quevilly away from home for a hard-fought point. Despite the solid displays and relatively few defeats, Valenciennes remain close to the danger zone as they haven’t won in the league since October 15th.

The team’s star centre-back Coffaut remains a major doubt but no other serious injury issues. Kaba’s role in midfield remains crucial and almost all forward moves these days are channelled through him.

Bastia

Bastia impressed going forward last Saturday when they scored 4 goals to beat Nimes 4-2 at home. Van den Kerkhof produced another very strong performance, while Guidi won a penalty for his team in what was their second consecutive win.

Don’t have any long-term absentees but the winter signing Dongue is yet to be of help in midfield as he continues to lack fitness. Also, attacking midfielder Alfarela is doubtful for this trip for personal reasons.
