Valencia vs. Lille: Lineups

So, the big question is whether or not an Eden Hazard-less Lille OSC can do anything against Valencia at the Mestalla. Considering how dangerous Valencia are at home, I think I'm going to go with 'no' especially as Lille are missing a handful of good attacking players. About all that they can hope for is a scoreless draw, but with Roberto Soldado on the other side... yeah, that might not be too pretty.

Still, you'd have to think they can do better than their opening performance in this year's edition of the UEFA Champions League, where they were hammered at home by BATE Borisov.

Valencia starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Vicente Guaita; Aly Cissokho, Victor Ruiz, Carlos Delgado, Antonio Barragan; Andrés Guardado, Tino Costa, Fernando Gago, Sofiane Reghouli; Jonas; Roberto Soldado.

Lille starting lineup (4-3-3): Mickael Landreau; Franck Beria, Aurelien Chedjou, Marko Basa, Mathieu Debuchy; Benoit Pedretti, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Florent Balmont; Nolan Roux, Ryan Mendes, Dmitri Payet.
