Elye Wahi was rested for RC Lens’ draw against FC Lorient, however, he will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League encounter with PSV Eindhoven.
Morgan Guilavogui got the nod ahead of Wahi for the goalless draw against Les Merlus. Whilst the former Montpellier HSC forward came off the bench, he will still be well-rested for the trip to the Netherlands. He will be joined by the ever-present Florian Sotoca and Adrien Thomasson in the attack. The latter could, however, be replaced by Angelo Fulgini, who got the first goal of Lens’ Champions League campaign.
Elsewhere, former Leicester City midfielder Nampalys Mendy is likely to get the nod over Andy Diouf, who has seen his minutes in European competition limited since his summer arrival from FC Basel.
