Valenciennes vs Lorient
Lorient clearly without interest in this cup, these are the players called on their site:
Meslier, Pattier – Lemaire, Mendes, Kamissoko, Ouaneh, Rose, Ebane, Julloux – Edjouma, Boubaya, Wadja, Ponceau, Etuin, Cabot, Guel – Courtet, Bila
Only 20 years old def. Mendes ( 2), Rose ( def.1+1), Edjouma ( 21 years old midf. 2sub), Wadja ( midf. 3), Cabot ( midf.1sub), Courtet ( att.1+2), played some minutes this season, most part of the other players are 20 years old or less youngsters.
Thiago (midf.18+2 last season) remain out and Kantari ( def.3), Niakaté ( def. 1), Perquis ( reg. keeper 3), Roudet (midf. 2) will rest for home team.
But Valenciennes will have, specially in attack, six-seven players usual starters in league matches.
Also if both teams gained same results ( two wins and one draw) in league till now, Lorient seems more different and weakened respect the usual starting eleven, hosts could have problems in goal, with both keepers called newcomers from lower league teams and without minutes neither in their old teams, so, also a bet on goals could be acceptable, but i think that Lorient is too young and unexperienced in this first eleven to not be defeated at the end.
Odds on hosts are dropping everywhere.
