The lineup of Lens against Brest: Haise’s strong choice for Wahi


By: Manu Tournoux

Franck Haise, the Lens coach, has made an important decision concerning his center forward Elye Wahi.

RC Lens welcomes Stade Brestois this Saturday in the championship. A match at the top of the table and which the Artésiens tackled with their man in form, Elye Wahi (scorer in each of the last 3 matches).

There was a slight doubt regarding the presence of the former Montpellier player in the starting team. Last weekend, he suffered a blow to his shoulder in a tackle by Duje Caleta-Car. Last Wednesday, he did not train normally. Ultimately, he was retained in the group. And this Saturday evening, he appears in the starting lineup for the Sang et Or.

Haise doesn’t change a winning team

In attack, Wahi will be associated with Sotoca and Pereira Da Costa. The latter continues to be preferred to Adrien Thomasson and Angelo Fulgini.

In midfield, El-Aynaoui and Mendy make up the recovery duo, while Frankowski and Aguilar will liven up the corridors. The back trio remains unchanged. Gradit, Danso and Khusainov will try to reproduce their good performance against Lyon.

Note that Deiver Machado is still injured, while Facundo Medina is suspended.

Lens: Samba – Gradit, Danso, Khusanov – Aguilar, N. Mendy, El-Aynaoui, Frankowski – Sotoca, Wahi, Da Costa.
