Dilane Bakwa (21) looks set to return for RC Strasbourg Alsace when they host Olympique de Marseille on Saturday night, whilst Chelsea lonaee Ângelo Gabriel (18) is also expected to start.
Bakwa sufered a hamstring injury during the match against Clermont Foot in early November, and he was initally expected to be out for six weeks. However, the winger has made a swift return and trained normally with the first team this week. As a result, he is in contention to start against Marseille. He is expected to start on the left of Strasbourg’s attack, alongside Emegha and Gabriel. Les Alsaciens’ only major absence is Marvin Senaya, who misses out through suspension as the club go in search of their first win since 24th September, when they beat local rivals FC Metz in the Derby de l’Est.
Strasbourg likely line-up v Marseille:
Matz Sels; Thomas Delaine, Lucas Perrin, Gerzino Nyamsi, Frédéric Guilbert; Junior Mwanga, Ibrahima Sissoko, Ismaël Doukouré; Dilane Bakwa, Emanuel Emegha, Ângelo Gabriel. (L’Éq)
