Lens team news
Their struggles against Championnat National 3 side Stade Poitevin in the previous Coupe de France round illustrated Lens current plight. Franck Haise’s men ran out 0-1 winners at Stade Michel-Amand which also happens to be their only win across seven previous matches in all competitions. Lens, who have never won France’s major domestic cup competition — having been runners-up on three previous occasions (1948, 1975 and 1998) — could potentially be without Mamadou Camara, Gael Kakuta, Wesley Saïd and Deiver Machado.
Lens predicted XI: Leca; Gradit, Danso, Haidara; Clauss, Cahuzac, Doucouré, Fofana, Frankowski; Sotoca, Kalimuendo-Muinga.
