Marseille defender Chancel Mbemba to miss Lille clash with knee injury

Marseille defender Chancel Mbemba will miss Friday’s Ligue 1 match against Lille with a knee injury.

Mbemba was forced off in the second half of Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain after suffering a blow to his left knee.

Scans on Monday confirmed that Mbemba has suffered a contusion, and he is expected to be out for around two weeks.

The 27-year-old will be a major blow for Marseille, who are currently fourth in Ligue 1. Mbemba has been a key player for Marseille this season, making 26 appearances in all competitions.

He is expected to return to action for the second leg of Marseille’s Europa Conference League quarter-final against PAOK on April 14.

Lille without Angel Gomes

Lille will also be without a key player for Friday’s match, as Angel Gomes is ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Gomes has been in impressive form for Lille this season, scoring four goals and providing six assists in 25 appearances.

His absence will be a blow for Lille, who are currently sixth in Ligue 1.

Adam Ounas is expected to return to the Lille squad after missing the win over Lens last weekend with a muscle injury.

Nabil Bentaleb will also start for Lille, despite being suspended for the next match against Strasbourg.
