Lille Metropole of France will be banking on the goal scoring qualities of Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen in tonight’s UEFA Champions League game against Valencia.
The Nigerian who has scored once in the Champions League against Chelsea returns from injury as the French Ligue Une side are guest to the Spanish La Liga side at the Mestalla.
OwoSports.com gathered from Monday’s pre-match news conference as Christophe Galtier informed that Osimhen is avaliable for the game.
Galtier confirmed, “Osimhen and Fonte are fit but Timothy Weah is still out.”
Lille who are desperate for a win as the Champions League enters MatchDay 4⃣ may see their Europe dreams vanish in thin air if they lose.
They stand a chance of playing in the Europa League play-offs if tonight’s result come their way, though it’s still a tough task as they seat bottom of Group H with a point.
Galtier should line up a 3-4-3 formation.
The Nigerian is expected to resume his position alongside Jonathen Ikoné and Yusuf Yazici, to the detriment of Loïc Rémy.
José Fonte, who was left on the bench against Marseille should return to the defenceline with the duo of Gabriel and Adama Soumaoro.
Maignan, Gabriel, Cast, Soumaoro – Bradaric, Soumaré, André, Celik – Ikoné, Osimhen, Yazici
