Team News

  • Toulouse boss Alain Casanova will be pleased to see Steeve Yago and Cheikh M'Bengue return from suspension to bolster his defence.
  • However, La Tefece are set to be without Jonathan Zebina and Franck Tabanou who are both doubts after missing the defeat to Nice through injury.
  • Casanova will need to be clever with his team selection as he attempts to re-discover that winning formula following a run of three defeats on the spin.
  • Lyon are set to be without three key players for their trip to Toulouse.
  • Michel Bastos is unavailable with a back injury, while Jimmy Briand is a doubt with a hamstring strain.
  • Dejan Lovren has a quadriceps injury, but the attacking trio of Alexandre Lacazette, Bafetimbi Gomis and Lisandro Lopez are all available as Lyon aim to stay top of the table.

Prediction

  • Lyon travel to Toulouse hoping to continue their fine run and maintain their position at the summit of Ligue 1.
  • Les Gones moved to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Reims, and can consolidate that position with a victory over a Toulouse side that continues to slip down the league.
  • La Tefece are winless in three games, and are now struggling to find the net after a fantastic start in which Wissam Ben Yedder proved to be a prolific goalscorer.
  • The home fans will be eager for the France u-21 international to find form once more, but that may prove difficult against a Lyon side that has the second best defensive record in the division.
  • Lyon are also widely considered to be superior on an attacking front, and they should be able to overcome a Toulouse team low on confidence and continue their good run.
