An unlikely return, the eleven of the Canaries!
After a checkered start, it is high time for FC Nantes to relaunch. Make way for the composition of the Canaries concocted by Antoine Kombouaré.
FCN-TFC: Nantes finally wants to start its season
The start of the season in Ligue 1 is complicated for FC Nantes. After three games played, the Canaries are fifteenth with only 2 small points taken out of 9 possible. An inaugural defeat against Marseille, then two draws obtained in Angers (0-0) and against Lille (1-1) constituting the checkered start of the protected by Antoine Kombouaré. The Kanak technician therefore wants to get his team off on the right foot and for that, he had decided to make a strong choice: that of not calling Ludovic Blas, one of the executives in the middle, in the group for the reception. of Toulouse FC.
But it looks like there was a new twist on Friday. While Antoine Kombouaré explained at a press conference that Ludovic Blas did not feel fit to contest the meeting, the newspaper West France then announced that a departure was no longer on the agenda for him. Better, the playmaker should return to the FCN group by Sunday. A great gift for Canaries supporters who will need their nugget. Indeed, Toulouse FC is impressive for its return to Ligue 1, with a very nice victory obtained in Troyes (0-3) and two draws canceled against Lorient (2-2) and against Nice (1-1). Seventh in the standings, the Haut-Garonne club should still play their card thoroughly outside. It will therefore be necessary to be wary for the FCN.
FCN-TFC: Second tenure in Ligue 1 for Mostafa Mohamed?
Recruited on loan this summer from Galatasaray, the Egyptian striker Moustafa Mohamed could return to the starting XI. He came on during the game against OM and helped his team well by pushing defender Samuel Gigot into error and causing a penalty. The Pharaoh could take advantage of the difficulties ofEvan Guessand, deemed far too sterile against Marseille and Angers. To accompany the attack, Moses Simon should feed the left flank despite a cruel lack of realism and a ghostly presence against Angers. For his “come back”, Ludovic Blas will probably be aligned on the right or in 10 to carry the offensive actions.
In the middle, the pair Chirivella – Moutoussamy should logically be renewed, due to the injury of Moussa Sissoko (muscle strain of the thigh). Finally, just ahead of Alban Lafont, a three-man defense should be favored with two lateral pistons, of which Antoine Kombouaré is a big fan. Thus, Quentin Merlin should appear on the left lane and Fabio on the right, unless Marcus Coco is preferred to him in order to bring the game further forward. They had to protect the Pallois – Castelletto – Girotto hinge, already established against Lille.
Probable composition of the FCN against the TFC:
Guardian : A.Lafont
Defenders : N. Pallois, JC Castelletto, A. Girotto
Midfielders : Q. Merlin, Chirivella, S. Moutoussamy, L. Blas, Fabio (or M. Coco)
Attackers : Mr. Simon, Mr. Mohamed
