Team News

  • Lyon are set to be without a number of key players for this clash.
  • Jimmy Briand has a hamstring problem, while Clement Grenier and Yoann Gourcuff are both doubts with thigh injuries.
  • Maxime Gonalons and Mouhamadou Dabo are both suspended, but Lisandro Lopez and Dejan Lovren are set to return.
  • Bottom club Nancy have very few injury concerns going into the game.
  • Fouad Rachid has a leg injury, while Jean Landry Bassilekin is out with an ankle problem.
  • Jeff Louis is absent with a groin injury, but otherwise Jean Fernandez has a full squad to choose from.

Prediction

  • Lyon take on Nancy at the Stade de Gerland looking to build on their victory over Saint-Etienne in the Rhone derby on Sunday.
  • Les Gones were able to overcome their local rivals despite playing much of the game with 10 men, Michel Bastos netting the winner midway through the second half.
  • By contrast Nancy are still looking for their second win despite putting in an improved display against Valenciennes, who battled back to earn a point through a Massadio Haidara strike.
  • The Ligue 1 basement dwellers may have shown signs of life in recent weeks, but they do not possess the same quality as Lyon, who will be expected to sweep to a convincing victory.
