Strasbourg predicted XI v Lens: Ângelo Gabriel out injured, Marvin Senaya starts

Patrick Viera will make only one enforced change as the Chelsea loanee Ângelo Gabriel picked up an injury during the midweek Coupe de France victory over Le Havre AC.

The winger has made a promising start to life at RC Strasbourg Alsace and in his place, the club will turn instead to Marvin Senaya. Principally played as a right back, Senaya will be now be trusted to help provide the team with a creative influence. 

A young midfield consisting of the twenty-year-olds Habib Diarra and Junior Mwanga will be supported by the comparative experience of their ‘elder statesman’ of twenty-six-year-old Ibrahima Sissoko. Strasbourg has turned to this midfield frequently over the past few weeks as they look to continue an impressive return since the start of the year, losing only once to league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
