Predicted Monaco XI v Lorient: Wissam Ben Yedder leads the line amid doubts on future

Fourth-placed Monaco host Lorient on Sunday afternoon for matchday 31 of the Ligue 1 season, ahead of a decisive few hours for the race to the Champions League. Should Les Monégasques win against Les Merlus, they will go level with third-placed Marseille and put pressure on Les Phocéens before the latter’s home game against relelegation-battlers Troyes tonight.

German forward Kevin Volland (30) is expected to partner Wissam Ben Yedder (32) up front for AS Monaco. The France international’s future with the Philippe Clement-led side is reportedly under consideration, with former Sevilla striker is tied to Monaco with a contract set to expire next year. Switzerland international Breel Embolo (26) remains sidelined with a knee sprain.

Teenage sensation Eliesse Ben Seghir (18) and former Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino (28) are expected to start on the bench. Axel Disasi (25), who is reportedly attracting interest from a number of high-profile Premier League clubs, is in line to feature at the heart of the defense.

Likely Monaco line-up against Lorient

Alexander Nübel – Caio Henrique, Guillermo Maripán, Axel Disasi, Vanderson – Youssouf Fofana, Mohamed Camara, Alexander Golovin, Krépin Diatta – Kevin Volland, Wissam Ben Yedder.
