“Sochaux are a team that like to play football and don’t worry about their opponents. That’s the club’s culture,” Garde said. “We are expecting a tough game. We need to confirm our good form, and try and cause them as many problems as possible.”
In the pick of the other matches, OGC Nice face Stade Rennais at the Stade Municipal du Ray, although the match will be played behind closed doors as a punishment for fan misbehavior last season.
