CONFIRMED: Lille line-up v Nice – Liverpool-owned World Cup star not in squad!

Lille

Here is how Lille will line up against Nice away from home in Ligue 1 tonight, featuring Vincent Enyeama, Nolan Roux and Simon Kjaer, while Liverpool-owned striker Divock Origi is apparently rested.

Lille will be looking to return to winning ways tonight when they take on Nice away from home in Ligue 1.

Rene Girard’s side will head into the clash on the back of a goalless draw with former French champions Montpellier at home at the weekend.

Les Dogues are currently fourth in the French top flight with 12 points from six matches and have yet to lose a game.

Although Lille have struggled to score goals and have found the target just six times, they have statistically the best defensive record in the French top flight having conceded just once.

Given the indifferent form of French champions Paris Saint-Germain at the moment, Lille will be determined to maintain their unbeaten run and boost their (unlikely?) challenge for the Ligue 1 title.

Meanwhile, Nice are 16th in the league table with seven points from six matches and have conceded 11 goals already. Lille will be favourites to win tonight, but complacency at the Allianz Riviera could prove to be costly.

Here is how Lille will line up against Nice tonight:

Lille XI:

Subs: Elana, Soumaoro, Beria, Traore, Delaplace, Lecinena, Meite
