Team News

  • Valenciennes are set to be without a host of players ahead of the visit of Lyon.
  • Gael Danic is set for a long spell on the sidelines with a broken leg, while Rudy Mater and Carlos Sanchez both have hamstring problems.
  • Striker Gregory Pujol has a calf injury, while Pape Abdou Camara, Mody Traore, Dusan Djuric are all still out.
  • Benjamin Angoua also misses out after being handed a two-match suspension.
  • Jimmy Briand is still out as he continues his recovery from injury, however Lyon boss Remi Garde has an almost fully fit squad to choose from.


  • Lyon will try and move back to the top of Ligue 1 when they take on Valenciennes at the Stade de Gerland.
  • Les Gones disappointed last week as they were held to a goalless draw by struggling Evian. Meanwhile Valenciennes recovered from their 5-0 humbling at the hands of Nice by earning a battling draw at Ajaccio.
  • Les Atheniens have slipped down the league following a promising start, and their chances of gaining maximum points in this one appear slim as they face a Lyon side that has lost just once at home this term.
  • Expect Remi Garde's men to dominate proceedings and move, at least temporarily, back to the summit of the table with a comfortable victory.
