France Coupe de la Ligue Evian - Laval
Evian's last three fixture have been perhaps their three most open games of the season, with both teams scoring in each and all going "over", this hardly seems like the competition or time to go back into their shell. Laval are not exactly known for the open nature of their play, but their last two road games in this competition have produced six goals and they have both scored and conceded in four of their last five Ligue 2 starts, with all producing at least two goals. Only four recent h2h meetings between these two, but an average of 4.25 goals and all went"over". It is normally the "less adventurous" side who decide how these matches are played out and that would be the visitors in this case, Laval have travelled with a bigger squad than usual, which normally means rotation, but they have made the trip with all their experienced, regular starters and look to be treating this very seriously. Hosts have named 20 for today, so, expect quite a few changes, they are without key defensive midfielder Yeltsin Tejeda, last four starts he has missed have averaged 3.75 goals and they are without a clean sheet in seven in his absence.
