Competition: Ligue 1 Date: Saturday 10th September 2016 Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy Kick-Off: 19:00 BST
Marko Basa and Rio Mavuba could feature for Lille after nursing their injuries over the international break but loanee Rony Lopes is unavailable against his parent club.
Naïm Sliti, lacking match fitness, is unlikely to make his debut this weekend, whilst Nicolas de Préville could be fit to start.
Monaco have been boosted by the return of Radamel Falcao and Kylian Mbappe, although this match comes too soon and a more likely return date is the midweek Champions League tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
Danijel Subasic, who pulled out of the Croatia squad due to a thigh injury, will be assessed by the club ahead of this match.
Lille achieved a decent result before the international break as they ended Nice’s perfect start to the season with a draw but they’ve still looked rather unconvincing this season, although they have a solid unbeaten run at home in the league and have proved to be stern opponents for Monaco during recent meetings.
French principality side Monaco currently joint-top of the Ligue 1 standings, following their superb victory over champions Paris Saint-Germain last time out, and could make the position their own over the weekend with victory here. However, the side have struggled in recent visits to Lille.
Lille’s solid record at home against Monaco will play into the minds of the visitors, who also have to think about the mid-week hosting of Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League’s return. With no European football to be concerned about, Lille may end Monaco’s winning run here.
