Monaco predicted XI v Lens: Folarin Balogun set for a place on the bench

New signing Folarin Balogun is set for a place on the bench when they face RC Lens on Saturday night, with Wissam Ben Yedder set to lead the line once again. 

Balogun said that he “feels good and ready to go” for his new club during his presentation on Thursday, however, he may be made to wait for his debut. Adi Hütter alluded to the former Arsenal forward being included in the squad, but not being used from the start. Instead, Ben Yedder will lead the line. Monaco have the most prolific attack in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 10 goals in their opening three games. 

There aren’t expected to be too many other surprises, but with Guillermo Maripán returning, Denis Zakaria could be pushed into the midfield, potentially displacing Mohamed Camara.
