OM's Nuno Tavares, Rennes' Désiré Doué, Paris Saint-Germain's Presnel Kimpembe and Marco Verratti... check out which players will be suspended for Ligue 1 Uber Eats Round 9 this weekend.
After the international break, Ligue 1 Uber Eats is back with Round 9. In the opening match of the round on Friday, OM (second in the standings) travel to Angers SCO but will have to do without their left wing-back Nuno Tavares, who is serving his first suspension in the French league after racking up the yellow cards (J4, J7 and J8).
Of the two games scheduled for Saturday, the first will see Stade Rennais FC will travel to Strasbourg without Désiré Doué; the youngest goal scorer in Ligue 1 Uber Eats season so far this season is suspended for this match in Alsace.
PSG will be without the injured Presnel Kimpembe and Marco Verratti, who are serving a one-match suspension, while opponents Nice will be without Jean-Clair Todibo.
On Sunday, the derby between ESTAC and Stade de Reims will see four suspension absentees. Pape Ndiaga Yade will serve the suspension handed down by the LFP's Disciplinary Committee last week while three Reims players will be suspended: Maxime Busi, Marshall Munetsi and Dion Lopy.
In addition, the young Khalil Fayad, the fourth-youngest starter of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats season, will be suspended for MHSC's trip to Toulouse.
Finally, the 11th suspended player for Round 9 is Nantes' Samuel Moutoussamy, who will serve a ban against AS Monaco on Sunday at 17:05.
