Granville is eager to advance
Granville will have a strong favorite stigma upon them for this clash, they will be expected to get a win and progress to the next round of the French Cup. In the first round they beat NDC Angers with a score of 4-2, it was the second time this season they managed to score four goals in a match. The lower league season will not stop for the World Cup, so Granville will try to use this match to improve their form, especially in front of the opposing goal. This season they have won only three games in their league scoring 13 goals in the process while allowing 14. There is a certain balance there, but when a team is averaging more than one conceded goal per game, and at the same time losing matches, things have to change. Granville won two of their past five games and will be looking to continue their run of somewhat positive form. They are only three points away from the relegation zone, and the season will get trickier as time goes on.
Granville's potential starting lineup: Reulet, Assoumou, Benyahya, Diarra, Barre, Theault, Ali Gueddar, Bob, Guehi, Crehin, Nabab.
L'Etoile hasn't seen much real action in the highest echelon of French football, this is their fifth try in the French Cup. They made their recorded debut in 2012 losing to Colmar 5-0 and then had to wait three years for another chance, and again a loss. They lost two years later as well, before finally winning their first game three weeks ago against Baie Mahault. They will be huge underdogs against Granville, and even though the Cup sees plenty of surprises, somehow it doesn't feel like it's going to happen this time around. It is going to be hard for a team like L'Etoile to adjust to a different aspect of football, the one they can rarely experience.
L'Etoile potential starting lineup: Boncoeur, Eliezer, Michineau, Dezac, Justine, Jasmin, Zenon, Dyvrande, Anatol, Laurence, Gamby.
Granville: Jerome Kimmakon is struggling with an injury.
L'Etoile: No injuries to report.
