Nantes vs Laval team news

Nantes

Once again Nantes is facing a tough second part of the season when it comes to their league position. They have lost four games in a row and inching closer to the relegation zone. However, when it comes to the French Cup, they won it two years ago and lost in the final match last season. Nantes has Jean-Charles Castelletto, Samuel Moutoussamy, Mostafa Mohamed, and Moses Simon playing for their countries during January while Bastien Meupiyou and Ignatius Ganagao are injured. Check out how Mostafa Mohamed's Egypt squad will fare during the AFCON tournament.

Predicted Lineup: Lafont – Merlin, Pallois, Comert, Coco – Chirivella, Augusto, Sissoko, Mollet, Traore, Kadewere.

Laval

The visiting team won their previous three Cup matches with an impressive combined goal difference of 11-1, but Nantes should be a whole different story. For the first time in the competition, Laval is the outsider. Laval had a good first half of the season in Ligue 2 getting into the top four, but failed to win their last five games. Ryan Ferhaoui is unavailable.

Predicted Lineup: Samassa – Balde, Tavares, Diaw – Cherni, Bobichon, Roye, Sanna, Vargas – Kadile, Tchokounte.

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.


Player to Watch: Florent Mollet

With two of Nantes' most important players Mostafa Mohamed and Moses Simon playing for their countries in the AFCON tournament, Florent Mollet will be someone to look for in their upcoming games. Mollet has been the second-best scorer this season with four goals, he also scored in their previous Cup match.

Mollet is a 32-year-old attacking midfielder who joined Nantes a year ago from Schalke. His previous stints include Montpellier, Metz, and Dijon.
