TROPHEE DES CHAMPIONS: MONTPELLIER VS LYON
French Super Cup match or Trophee des Champions will take place at the Red Bull Arena in New York, where Ligue 1 champions Montpellier will square off with Coupe de France winners Lyon.
La Paillade have shocked the entire footballing world by winning the Ligue 1 title last season, but nobody can say Rene Girard’s men didn’t deserve it.
The biggest task in front of the club chiefs after such an amazing success was totry and keep the squad together, which was not easy given that top European sides were asking about Yanga-Mbiwa, Belhanda, Estrada and Giroud.
Garry Bocaly has remained in France because of injury, while Abdelhamid El Kaoutari is away on international duty.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Jourdren – Congre, Yanga-Mbiwa, Stambouli, Bedimo – Saihi, Estrada, Belhanda – Utaka, Charbonnier, Ait Fana.
Last season was very disappointing for the French giants and not even the Coupe de France victory could improve the general impression.
Criss, Cissokho, Kallstrom, Lloris and Bastos are all nearing the exit door, while it appears there will be no major signings in the summer transfer window.
Lisandro Lopez should be fit to play despite injuring his ankle in the friendly draw against Montreal Impact, while Michel Bastos is not in contention.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Lloris – Dabo, Kone, Cris, Cissokho – Gonalons, Grenier, Gourcuff – Briand, Gomis, Lisando.
