Valenciennes predicted XI v Lyon: Anthony Knockaert to start

Former Fulham and Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Anthony Knockaert (32) is set to start as Valenciennes look to book their place in the Coupe de France final at the expense of Olympique Lyonnais on Tuesday evening. 

Knockaert has featured on four occasions for Valenciennes during their Coupe de France run, whilst in Ligue 2, he has made 19 appearances this season, scoring once and registering two assists. He will start in attack, alongside Siriné Doucouré, who has netted once during the cup run, and Flamarion, who has played just 45 minutes in the cup this season. 

Valenciennes have had a miserable season in Ligue 2 and are all but certain to make the drop to National 1 at the end of the season, however, could there be a silver lining in the form of a Coupe de France final?#
