Valenciennes vs Bordeaux Lineups and Team News

Valenciennes

Valenciennes recorded just their third away win of the season last weekend when they outsmarted Amiens to beat them 2-0. Played well and for a change defended without any mistakes. Due to a series of shameful defeats in March and early April sacked their manager. For the rest of the season, the U21s boss Kantari will serve as an interim coach.

Rookie coach Ahmed Kantari doesn’t have too many issues but he is missing the team’s top goalscorer Grbic (7 goals) due to an injury. In his absence, Berthomier could be given a chance up front after coming off the bench last weekend and scoring.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux were convincing in their 3-0 home win vs Grenoble on Monday. The result returned the Girondines in second place and they can smell promotion. However, their lead over Metz is only 1 point so there is no room for any errors.

Used a more aggressive 4-2-3-1 formation on Monday and as this worked so well might be tempted to keep the same approach for this away game. The main goalie Pussin remains suspended, but on his debut last time around Stravzek kept a clean sheet and he is full of confidence right now. Don’t have any serious injury issues and all regular starters are fit and available.
