What could be better than a shock to restart? To launch the 14th day of Ligue 1, AS Monaco will indeed host the LOSC this Friday evening at the Stade Louis II, before an end in apotheosis with the Olympico OL-OM on Sunday evening at the Groupama Stadium. Nevertheless, this XXL meeting has a very different taste this season between two teams, a little more in difficulty in the league for the moment. Respectively eleventh (18 pts) and twelfth (16 pts), Asémistes and Mastiffs are in the hard.
After only one defeat in all competitions over the last nine games, Niko Kovac’s players relapsed before the truce. Beaten by Brest, the Asémistes then drew against PSV Eindhoven in C3 before being hooked by Reims. For their part, Lille have not won in L1 since October 3 and a home success against OM. Since then, Jocelyn Goourvennec’s men have recorded three draws and two losses in the league, and success in Sevilla in the Champions League is a bit like the tree that hides the forest.
No Renato Sanches in Lille
Both teams therefore need a victory and to get it, Niko Kovac will take out the heavy artillery. Deprived of Badiashile, Golovin (suspended), Fabregas and Matazo (injured), the Croatian technician will line up a 3-2-4-1 with Nübel in the cages and a Sidibé-Disasi-Pavlovic defense. Gelson Martins and Caio Henrique will be the two pistons with Fofana and Tchouaméni in the midfield. Finally, Volland and Diop will be aligned in attack with Ben Yedder.
On the Lille side, Jocelyn Gourvennec also has significant absentees (Onana is suspended, Sanches, Bamba or even Gudmundsson are injured) … For his 4-4-2, the French technician will align Grbic in the goal and the defense will be made up by Celik, Fonte Djalo and Reinildo. Ikoné and Yazici will be placed in the middle in the corridors with an André-Xeka duo in front of the defense. Finally, on the offensive side, Yilmaz and David will try to shake the Monegasque nets.
