Bordeaux have a host of injury problems ahead of the trip to Lille.
Lamine Sane is out for a month with a leg injury, Henri Saivet has a shoulder complaint and Julien Faubert has a thigh problem.
Cheick Diabate and David Bellion are both doubts, Diego Rolan is out with an ankle injury, and Hadi Sacko also misses out.
Defender Henrique is also out with a thigh problem, while Landry N'Guemo and Mariano remain unavailable.
Lille will try and continue their push for European football when they face a Bordeaux side that is fading fast.
Les Dogues earned an impressive 3-1 win at Ajaccio last time out, and they have a good chance of maintaining a fine run of form against a weary Girondins side.
Francis Gillot's men suffered a surprise defeat to Brest last weekend in what was a sluggish performance. The visitors have also been hit by a swathe of injuries in recent times and that does not bode well for their trip north.
Rudi Garcia's hosts should be in confident mood going into the game and with the attacking talent at their disposal a comfortable home win will not come as a surprise.
