Julien Stephan might not want to change the winning formula and should persist with a similar eleven that he’s been actively using. M’Baye Niang and Adrien Hunou should be the pair to lead the attack. Rafinha, Camavinga, Lea Silki and Bourigeaud could form the midfield, while, Hamari Traore, Damien Da Silva, Jeremy Morel and Souleyman Doumbia are likely to be the back four with Edouard Mendy it at goal.
Andre Villas-Boas should also be persisting with the same eleven which has earned him positive results lately. Dimtri Payet, Benedetto and Radonjic are likely to feature in the advanced role. Morgan Sanson, Boubacar Samson and Valentin Roniger could fit in at midfield. Gonzalez, Caleta-Car and Amavi should be in defensive duties.
