For the title match, at 9 p.m. against Angers, Christophe Galtier decided to trust Yusuf Yazici and Renato Sanches. Tiago Djalo is aligned in central defense to replace José Fonte, suspended.
After the frustrating draw against Saint-Etienne a week ago, Christophe Galtier decided to make some changes for the last game of the season, tonight against Angers. Jonathan Bamba and Luiz Araujo, holders in the last match, are left on the bench, as is Jonathan Ikoné, replacing for the fourth time in a row in Ligue 1.
Instead, the Lille coach trusts Renato Sanches and Yusuf Yazici to occupy the flanks. The Portuguese started in Ligue 1 for the first time in a month and the match against Olympique Lyonnais. For the Turk, it goes back even further with the reception of Marseille in early March, but he had in the meantime started the two Coupe de France meetings, against Gazélec d’Ajaccio and Paris Saint-Germain.
Djalo replaces Fonte, suspended
In central defense, LOSC aligns Tiago Djalo alongside Sven Botman to overcome the suspension of José Fonte. For the rest, the LOSC will be able to count on its executives. Maignan will occupy the goals, Celik and Reinildo will be on the sides while the duo André-Soumaré is aligned in the middle.
In front, we find Jonathan David and especially Burak Yilmaz, untenable at the end of the season. The Turkish striker remains on six goals in his last six league appearances. Lille will count on its center forward to erase the disappointment of a week ago against Saint-Etienne. The LOSC, leader, is master of its own destiny and will be crowned champion of France in the event of victory.
The composition of LOSC: Maignan – Celik, Djalo, Botman, Reinildo – Sanches, André, Soumaré, Yazici – David, Yilmaz.
The composition of Angers: Bernardoni – Capelle, Thomas, Pavlovic, Manceau – Mangani, Bobichon, Fulgini, Pereira Lage, Cabot – Diony.
