Team News

Lyon
Nice
  • Defender Jake O'Brien misses out here for an accumulation of bookings.
  • Adryelson and Clinton Mata are among Pierre Sage's options to replace the young Irishman.
  • Strong displays from Saïd Benrahma and Ernest Nuamah should see them both back in the XI for the hosts, although Rayan Cherki is also an option from the off.
  • Dante will miss out here after being sent off against Monaco.
  • Jérémie Boga and Terem Moffi will be available again following the conclusion of the Africa Cup of Nations and both could start.
  • Khéphren Thuram came off the bench on Sunday and should be fit enough tot be included from the off here.

Prediction

  • Lyon are brimming with confidence following a strong run of recent form and should be good value to keep that going at home.
  • Nice will be glad of the returns of Boga and Moffi, but could struggle defensively against Lyon's new-look attack with the absence of Dante.
