Lens – Lille: winner of the derby, LOSC even closer to the title, relive our live

For the reception of Lille, Franck Haise recovers his goalkeeper Jean-Louis Leca and reinstalls Badé in the center of his defense in place of Medina. Two changes in Lens and only one in Lille for Christophe Galtier, deprived of a suspended André whom he replaces with Xeka.

With players operational again compared to the trip to Paris (2-1 defeat), Franck Haise has decided to reinstall his tauliers: Jean-Louis Leca in the goals instead of Wuilker Farinez and Loïc Badé as defense boss, Steven Fortes, sliding to the left and Facundo Medina joining the bench. Uncertain after leaving on injury against PSG, Cheick Doucouré will hold his place in the center of the field. Midfielders and attackers remaining the same.

Christophe Galtier played the card of continuity for this short trip to Lens. He made just one change from the eleven who started against Nice last Saturday (2-0). Benjamin André being suspended, Xeka makes his return to midfield alongside Boubakary Soumaré.

The Portuguese had not started since the Mastiff’s loss to Nîmes (1-2, March 21). Renato Sanches is therefore on the substitute bench, even though his coach said yesterday “he was one hundred percent for this derby”. The Portugal international missed the last game after another thigh scare. This week he also alternated individual sessions, treatments and workshops with the group.
