Team News

  • Troyes striker Jean-Christophe Bahebeck is a doubt for the clash with a hamstring injury.
  • Maxime Colin could miss out with a calf complaint, while Stephane Drouin has a groin problem.
  • Lyon are still suffering with a couple of injuries to key players.
  • Dejan Lovren and Samuel Umtiti are both set to return from suspension, while Yoann Gourcuff and Alexandre Lacazette have recovered from injury.
  • However, Jimmy Briand and Clement Grenier have yet to return to fitness and will miss out.

Prediction

  • Lyon travel to Troyes hoping to keep pace at the top of Ligue 1 and recover from a humiliating exit from the Coupe De France.
  • Les Gones were stunned as they lost to Championnat National side Epinal on penalties after a dramatic 3-3 draw in normal time. Still Remi Garde's men were in fine form in the league before the winter break, and they will look to continue that against a Troyes' side that has spent almost all of the season in the bottom three.
  • However, they may have it tough against the strugglers, who came through their cup tie with minnows Montceau at the weekend and took four points from their last two games before the mid-season interval.
  • Benjamin Nivet has been the key player for Jean-Marc Furlan's side, netting six goals and notching two assists, however it is at the other end where Troyes will have to perform if they are to take anything from the game.
  • Expect Lyon to dominate proceedings and come away with a vital away win.
