Lille predicted XI v Reims: Adam Ounas joins Rémy Cabella on sidelines

Adam Ounas has joined Rémy Cabella (calf injury) on the sidelines for Lille OSC’s trip to Stade de Reims on Saturday. The former has suffered a calf injury but is expected to make a quick recovery. 

Paulo Fonseca will be without Ounas, Cabella, Tiago Morais, Ivan Cavaleiro, Samuel Umiti and Andrej Ilić against Will Still’s side. Whilst the injury list is growing, the Portuguese manager is confident that Ounas will return against Stade Brestois. In the absence of Ounas, not a guaranteed starter, Angel Gomes is expected to play in the No.10 role. Whilst at times Gomes has played as a No.8 or even a No.6, he will be allowed to push further forward thanks to Benjamin André’s return from suspension. The Frenchman will start alongside Nabil Bentaleb.
