Lille predicted XI v Sturm Graz: Rémy Cabella absent?

Whilst Paulo Fonseca will have to do without holding midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, absent through suspension, Lille OSC could welcome Rémy Cabella back to the fold as they travel to face Sturm Graz in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.

Bentaleb accumulated the cards during the group stage of the competition and will therefore miss the first leg against the Austrian side. As a result, Angel Gomes, who is now very used to playing alongside Benjamin André, is expected to start in the pivot. 

Cabella could take the No.10 role. The Frenchman returned to first-team training at the beginning of the week, according to L’Équipe, and he will likely be included in the group. However, it is less likely that he will make the starting XI. 

Lille likely lineup v Sturm Graz

Lucas Chevalier; Ismaily, Bafodé Diakité, Leny Yoro, Tiago Santos; Angel Gomes, Benjamin André; Hákon Arnar Haraldsson, Yusuf Yazici, Edon Zhegrova; Jonathan David.
