Jonathan David is set to remain on the bench as Lille OSC make the trip to Slovakia to face Slovan Bratislava on Thursday night.
David, who for the past two years has been one of the most prolific strikers in Ligue 1, has not found his goalscoring touch so far this campaign. In 16 appearances in all competitions, he has just four goals, including just two in 11 Ligue 1 appearances. As a result, he has been dropped by Paulo Fonseca for the last two Ligue 1 games with Yusuf Yazici taking David’s place for the matches against AS Monaco and Olympique de Marseille.
Yazici is set to retain his place in the starting XI for the UEFA Europa Conference League tie against Slovan Bratislava.
