Both sides will be looking to recover from disappointing results last weekend and get back on track in Ligue 1.

Guingamp were defeated 1-0 at home against LOSC Lille, while Nice were defeated 2-1 by Southern rivals SC Bastia in a tempestuous clash.

The defeats leave both sides looking over their shoulders towards the relegation zone ahead of this weekend’s fixtures. Guingamp sit in 13th place, six points off the relegation zone, while Claude Puel’s Nice are down in 15th, only five off 18th-place Toulouse

Ivorian defender Benjamin Angoua will be out as he faces a suspension-the first of four matches, while Dorian Leveque misses out through injury, having hurt his thigh, according to France Football.

By contrast, Jocelyn Gourvennec will be able to call upon Lionel Mathis, who has been absent recently due to sickness.
