Strasbourg predicted XI v Montpellier: Ângelo Gabriel out, Andrey Santos to start?

Patrick Vieira has fresh injury concerns as RC Strasbourg Alsace travel to face Montpellier HSC on Sunday. With Ângelo Gabriel out injured, Les Alsaciens will be without a recognised right-winger for the encounter, which could bring about a formation change. 

RCSA didn’t strengthen significantly in the January transfer window, and they are currently paying the price. As the injuries pile up, the results fall off. Ângelo Gabriel now joins Lebo Mothiba, Moïse Sahi Dion and Abakar Sylla on the sidelines. The Brazilian, currently on loan from Chelsea, could be absent for six weeks, according to L’Équipe. 

His compatriot and fellow Chelsea loanee Andrey Santos could be in line for his first start since joining in January. The midfielder, who began the season on loan at Nottingham Forest, has made two substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for Strasbourg. 

Strasbourg likely lineup v Montpellier

Alaa Bellaarouch; Saïdou Sow, Lucas Perrin, Ismael Doukouré; Thomas Delaine, Ismail Sissoko, Andrey Santos, Frédéric Guilbert; Habib Diarra, Kevin Gameiro, Dilane Bakwa.
