Team news: Le Mans fight for survival
Le Mans visit Monaco on Tuesday night knowing that only a victory will be good enough to let them cling on to their hopes of retaining top-flight status.
With four games left in the season Le Mans are in 18th spot in the league, trailing 17th-placed St Etienne by eight points, and a defeat at the hands of Coupe de France finalists Monaco would all but ensure their relegation.
Yet Monaco still have plenty to play for, with Europa League qualification via the league still a possibility should they lose Saturday's cup final to Paris Saint-Germain.
Diego Perez is out injured for Monaco, with his place in midfield likely to be taken by Eduardo Costa, while Lukman Haruna is suspended.
