ghosts on the bench against Monaco?

Except for a setback, the now ex-residents of the Kévin Gameiro infirmary, Alexander Djiku, affected respectively in the right calf and abs the other Wednesday against Cagliari (1-2), and Thomas Delaine, injured in the hip here a dozen days, will be “available” to Julien Stéphan against Monaco this Saturday (5 p.m.).

The Strasbourg coach confirmed it Thursday noon. “Alex, Kevin and Thomas did a good part of the session on Wednesday and were able to do the slightly lighter session this morning in good conditions. I think they will be available to the group. »

Even though four The runners will be missing in front of ASM (Colin Dagba, Nordine Kandil, Eiji Kawashima and Karol Fila), the coach is delighted “to have recovered some players who were on the floor either last week or during the preparation (Ibrahima Sissoko and Lebo Mothiba also). “But the ghosts could well, for the most part, be content to take their place on the bench, at least initially.

An unstoppable trio in the midfield

« Ronaël Pierre-Gabriel (the rookie place of Mainz) who had not trained for a fortnight with his former club, but had trained individually, and Thomas Delaine would not be ready to play an entire match, but had to be able to do a piece of it, ”anticipates the technician.

Of all the returnees, the ex-Brestois Pierre-Gabriel, who played his first 30 minutes in Blue on Sunday in Liverpool, seems the most likely to start, in a right-back position where the other main contenders, Dagba and Fila, are off. With his delay in preparation, however, he remains in balance with the young Senaya, returned to Anfield.

The central hinge will undoubtedly rely on the Perrin-Nyamsi-Le Marchand trident, with Captain Liénard on the left flank.

In the midfield, the Thomasson-Prcic-Bellegarde trio seems, on the take at the end of last season, unstoppable. At the forefront, Habib Diallo, scorer on the banks of the Mersey, holds the rope to team up with Ludovic Ajorque.
