Lille predicted XI vs Lyon: Yusuf Yazıcı to replace the suspended Benjamin André

Lille will be hoping to dampen the mood at the Groupama Stadium as they travel to face Lyon following their first victory of the season against Rennes. Les Dogues will also be looking to return to winning ways following a frustrating 1-1 draw with Toulouse before the international break. 

L’Équipe reports that Paulo Fonseca is set to make two changes to his team that drew with Toulouse last time out. Both of these changes are forced too. Benjamin André will be unavailable for selection due to suspension and Brazilian left-back Ismaily will miss out due to injury. 

Therefore, the Portuguese coach should reinstate Yusuf Yazıcı to the starting lineup in place of the suspended André. This should see Angel Gomes operate in a more reserved midfield role after operating in an attacking berth against Les Violets. Gabriel Gudmundsson should also return to the starting eleven to replace the injured Ismaily. The rest of the team should remain unchanged with Jonathan David keeping his place up front despite his poor spell in front of goal. 

Lille likely XI vs Lyon:

Lucas Chevalier – Tiago Santos, Lenny Yoro, Alexsandro, Gabriel Gudmundsson – Nabil Bentaleb, Angel Gomes – Edon Zhegrova, Yusuf Yazıcı, Ivan Cavaleiro – Jonathan David
