Fifteen players will be suspended for Ligue 1 Uber Eats Round 4, with key absences in the weekend's headline clash between Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco.
First absence for Vitinha
Vitinha, who started the first three games, will miss his first match with PSG against AS Monaco on Sunday due to an accumulation of yellow cards. In the opposite camp, the Monegasques have Youssouf Fofana back but will be without their right-back, Vanderson.
After being sent off in Round 1, OL goalkeeper Anthony Lopes will serve the second game of his three-match ban when Lyon travel to Reims. For his part, Nabil Bentaleb will serve his second and final match suspension at Troyes-Angers, having been suspended by the FFF Disciplinary Committee following a red card received in preparation for the match against La Spezia. Against ESTAC, SCO will also be without defender Halid Sabanovic, who was sent off against SB29 last weekend.
Meanwhile AJ Auxerre will be without three suspended players when they host RC Strasbourg Alsace on Saturday. After receiving red cards at Montpellier on Sunday, strikers Mbaye Niang and Nuno Da Costa will be missing, as will Ghanaian recruit Gideon Mensah, who has yet to serve a match for his dismissal with Bordeaux in Round 38 of last season. A few hours later, Stade Rennais will be without Lesley Ugochukwu and Romain Salin at Lens.
Todibo, Savanier to miss out
OGC Nice will be without the services of Jean-Clair Todibo and Mario Lemina - both of whom were sent off as Nice lost to Clermont - for Sunday's clash with OM, who are still searching for their first win. Igor Tudor will have to reshape his three-man defence due to Samuel Gigot sending off last weekend.
Meanwhile Montpellier Hérault SC will be without captain Téji Savanier, who will serve the first game of his three-match suspension during the trip to Brest. La Paillade will also have to do without suspended 18-year-old midfielder Khalil Fayad, who has been a surprise addition to the MHSC squad this season, as well as Enzo Tchato.
