With the packages of Volland, Golovin (suspended), Minamino (muscle fatigue) and Boadu (recovery), we expected a Ben Yedder – Embolo association in attack.
But if Philippe Clement decided to line up Switzerland’s entry, he also felt the Monegasque captain needed a breather ahead of Tuesday’s second leg against Eindhoven.
Breel Embolo will be accompanied by Sofiane Diop, author of a good tackle against PSV four days ago. Gelson Martins and Krepin Diatta, starting for the first time since his serious knee injury in November 2021, will be in charge of bringing speed to the halls.
Jean Lucas replaces Eliot Matazo alongside Youssouf Fofana in midfield.
The eleven: Nübel – Aguilar, Disasi (c), Maripan, Jakobs – Diatta, Fofana, Jean Lucas, Gelson – Diop, Embolo
