3 major changes were made by the coach of the red and whites this Sunday. Adi Hutter must do without two of his usual starters, Maripan and Zakaria having both received a red card at the Vélodrome against Marseille last week (2-2). So Soungoutou Magassa replaces Maripan in defense, while the Austrian coach innovates to compensate for the absence of Zakaria in the middle. Akliouche scorer against OM, goes down a notch and Ben Seghir completes the attacking trio (composed of Ben Yedder and Golovin). The last change is that of Ismaïl Jakobs who returned from the CAN after the elimination of Senegal, his compatriot Krépin Diatta is also back, but on the bench.
Despite his double at Moustoir, André Ayew returned from the CAN and sits on the Le Havre bench again. Luka Eslner renews the eleven which held the draw in Lorient (3-3), with one exception. Rassoul Ndiaye was preferred to Loic Nego on the right side. Freshly eliminated from the CAN against DR Congo, Guinea has not yet released Bayo and Touré who are absent in the Normans group.
