Both teams gained scoreless draws in opening rounds, Laval against Nimes and Niort against Lens, i think today hosts will have various difficulties to gain another clean sheet having unavailable most aprt of defensive sector that gained last clean sheet. Keeper Cappone and def. Couturier and Quintin, all starters last week and all starters last season are out today as newcomers Nsikulu, Moyo and Bayard ( two of these players, coming from lower elages scored a lot of goals for their teams last season). Plus, it is not to forget that Laval loose various important players of last season and, all in all, now seems a bit weaker respect before. More, they were not able to win also if Nimes played in ten men most aprt fo second half.
Niort loose, among others, striker Konè ( 3g) gone just to Laval, but today without missings except newcomers mif. Dembelè and Agouzai ( both regualrs in Bourg and Troyes respectively last year)- I think geusts have more chances to gain a positive result here and probably win the match.
