Lille boss confirms four missing for Toulouse Ligue 1 match
20 December 2018 18:24 GMT
Christophe Galtier will have to do with the absence of at least four players with Toulouse coming to town on the weekend in the Ligue 1 Saturday clash.
Lille OSC are set to miss José Fonte and Xeka who are suspended with Rui Fonte (inflammation along a tibia) and Soumaoro (calf) will also be out of the fixture.
On Loïc Remy, the former Chelsea and Newcastle striker will face a late fitness check after just coming back to training.
“I am hopeful that I will be able to join the group,” said the Dogues coach, who will also be suspended and, like his Portuguese central defender, has two suspension matches. “We’ll see tomorrow.”
The LOSC will look towards Dabila and Edgar Le, who played together 85 minutes in Nimes last weekend.
“They performed well in difficult conditions related to the numerical inferiority (expulsion of José Fonte),” said Galtier.
“They have an experience in training because we associate all the defenders during the sessions. Yves (Dabila) has played more than Edgard (Ie). Edgar sometimes has his face closed because he does not play. It’s normal. But he shows a real desire to play and a great determination when the opportunity is given to him to return. He entered Nimes without any pressure. “
