Franck Haise has called up a 22-man squad for RC Lens’ first Champions League game of the season, at Sevilla FC, on Wednesday 19 September.
Premiere at Mendy
An uncertain time, Espoirs international midfielder Andy Diouf is finally here, although he will undoubtedly not be the starter. Nampalys Mendy and Neil El Aynaoui make their first appearance in the artesian group. The former could even start the match at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium.
Ruben Aguilar came from AS Monaco this summer and played his first match against FC Metz (0-1), last Saturday in Bollaert. The French national team player (1 selection) is also called up, while on the attacking front Elye Wahi and Florian Sotoca could be established.
The group: Leca, Samba, Pandor – Aguilar, Machado, Danso, Medina, Maouassa, Haïdara, Gradit, Khusanov, Frankowski – Abdul Samed, Fulgini, Diouf, El Aynaoui, Mendy, Thomasson – Sotoca, Wahi, Saïd, Guilavogui.
