Team News

Lille
Clermont Foot
  • Youngster Ayyoub Bouaddi will miss out here after being sent off against Montpellier last weekend.
  • Nabil Bentaleb, back from the Africa Cup of Nations, should start in midfield.
  • Yusuf Yazici and Adam Ounas are also options in attack.
  • After a dogged draw against Strasbourg last weekend, don't look for many changes from the visitors.
  • Shamar Nicholson won't feature after being forced off at the weekend.
  • Maxime Gonalons and Habib Keita are also options in midfield.

Prediction

  • Clermont are likely to struggle here without the talismanic Nicholson in attack, to say nothing of Lille's strong home form.
  • Les Dogues have conceded just four times at home this season, making a result here a tall order for Pascal Gastien's side.
