Team News
Lille
Lille will be able to welcome back the trio of Reinildo, Jose Fonte and Burak Yilmaz - who were all suspended for the win over Lorient - but the latter is not expected to start up top ahead of Yazici or David.

However, Renato Sanches is set to miss out with the muscle injury he picked up on international duty, while Zeki Celik's sprained ankle means another start at right-back for Jeremy Pied.

Boubakary Soumare and Jonathan Ikone both made appearances off the bench in Sunday's thrashing of Lorient and should return to the first XI for the visit of Milan.
Lille possible starting lineup:
Maignan; Pied, Fonte, Botman, Bradaric; Ikone, Andre, Soumare, Bamba; David, Yazici
Lille Europa League form: WDW
Lille form (all competitions): DDDWLW

AC Milan
As mentioned, the visitors will have to make do without Ibrahimovic due to the thigh problem he sustained against Napoli, which could prove to be a real blow in Milan's bid to keep their strong results going over the next few weeks.

Fellow forward Rafael Leao is also struggling with an injury in the same area and will probably be forced to join Ibrahimovic in the treatment room, meaning Ante Rebic should lead the line for Milan.

Samu Castillejo, Brahim Diaz and Diogo Dalot are some of the names likely to feature on Pioli's teamsheet this week, but Hauge's first goal for the club is unlikely to be enough for him to start this encounter.
AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Dalot, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Castillejo, Diaz, Krunic; Rebic
AC Milan Europa League form: WWWWWL
AC Milan form (all competitions): DWWLDW

Prediction: Lille 2-1 AC Milan
