Dream 11 Picks
The only way Nantes can return from this encounter with anything to show from their troubles is if they can perturb Lille defensively. It’s a gameplan massively propelled by the services of Alban Lafont, a goal-keeper who has been in sensational touch for his side this season.
With two cleansheets in four encounters and a measly two goals let past them in that period, Lille have rightfully seen accolades be crooned their way. The side’s defensive resolve, will and acumen has been hailed and lauded by everyone across the league, a defence which has covered itself in glory.
The side’s performances only made it rightful of us to opt for the club’s entire defensive setup for the clash. We begin with CB Jose Fonte who has scored on the one occasion for the club.
Following up is the trio of Sven Botman, Mehmet Zeki Celik and Domagoj Bradaric.
Our set of picks from Nantes will be wrapped up in this docket of our setup. We begin with Marcus Coco who has provided the one assist to his side, someone capable of traversing past the most impeccable of defences with his eye for the crosses and passes.
The other two names are more defensive minded picks. With Nantes looking to squirm their way though to a draw today, both Pedro Chirivella and Imran Louza will be asked to utilise their tenacious tackling and blocking to banish Lille from scoring.
Having already been hit for five goals, Nantes can easily end up crumbling infront of Lille today. The side’s botched defence will find it tricky to stave of striker’s Jonathan Bamba’s ever present threat, one which has seen him amass two goals and one assist.
Luiz Araujo has scored on a couple of occasions as well for the side to see him be inducted in our team as well along with Burak Yilmaz who has the one assist for his team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lille’s leading scorer, Bamba will captain our side while Bradaric is the vice-captain.
