Strasbourg vs Lens lineups and latest team news

Strasbourg

Strasbourg continued their strong start to the new season with a 1-0 away win vs Metz. It was another solid overall display and despite the luck involved a win was secured in the end to keep Strasbourg in the top 6. 

Last season Strasbourg nearly got relegated after having the second-worst home record in the league. They are starting this season in much better form at home and have collected 7 points from 3 home matches played. 

Don’t have many serious injury issues and only 2 fringe players are ruled out for this match. That said influential midfielder Sissoko has only just recovered from an injury and he might not be ready to start just yet.  

Predicted Lineup – Sels (GK), Guilbert, Perrin, Nyamsi, Delaine, Doukoure, Deminguet, Angelo, Dion, Diarra & Mothiba

Lens

Lens finally recorded their first win of the season last weekend when able to edge Toulouse 2-1 at home. It wasn’t pretty and Lens had to come from behind before clinching the 3 points with a late goal. 

Remain in the bottom as defeats were suffered in 4 of the first 5 league games. Yet to earn anything on the road too – 3 losses in 3. 

Cabot and Farinez remain unavailable, both are recovering after knee surgeries. David Costa could be back soon though as he’s training again. 

New striker Wahi was only on the bench last weekend but he’s likely to start now after having a decisive impact vs Toulouse as a substitute. 

Predicted Lineup – Samba (GK), Gradit, Danso, Medina, Frankowski, Abdul Samed, Mendy, Machado, Sotoca, Fulgini & Wahi

​Player to Watch: Elye Wahi

Lens signed striker Elye Wahi after the new season started. Wahi is yet to score for his new club but last weekend his assist produced the winning goal. Wahi scored 19 goals in 33 Ligue 1 matches for Montpellier last season and he is a very potent forward in this league. 

We expect Wahi to start now after his vital contribution last weekend and we back him to finally score his first goal for his new club too.
