Team News

  • Lyon have just one absentee for the visit of Lorient, with Yoann Gourcuff out with a groin injury.
  • Lorient will again be without Benjamin Corgnet and Alain Traore, who remain on the sidelines with thigh injuries.
  • Gregory Bourillon and Florent Chaigneau both have knee problems, Lucas Mareque is still on the sidelines, and Mathieu Coutadeur is still recovering from a long-term injury.

Prediction

  • Lyon welcome Lorient to the Stade de Gerland hoping to draw level on points with Paris Saint-Germain at the top of the Ligue 1 table.
  • Les Gones moved within three points of the league leaders by virtue of their 4-0 win at Bordeaux and PSG's defeat at Sochaux.
  • Gueida Fofana was instrumental for Remi Garde's side last time out and the Lyon boss will look for he and Clement Grenier to pull the strings again and help secure another vital win.
  • The visitors have their fair share of attacking talent however, and they will be eager to dent the hosts' title aspirations with a surprise victory.
  • Expect plenty of open and free-flowing football in this one, but with home advantage on their side, Lyon will probably be able to go one better than the 1-1 draw they earned in Brittany earlier in the season.
