Team News

Lorient
Lyon
  • After a thrilling derby win over Rennes, look for a relatively unchanged side for the hosts.
  • Mohamed Bamba was forced off with a shoulder injury. Look for Eli Junior Kroupi to lead the line in his place.
  • Imran Louza is also an option in central midfield.
  • Ainsley Maitland-Niles will miss out here after receiving a red card late on against Lens last weekend.
  • Henrique is fit again, having been on the bench at the weekend. The same is true for Corentin Tolisso.

Prediction

  • After their fine run of form was abruptly stopped by an imperious Lens, Lyon look good value to get back to winning ways here, particularly if Lacazette can pass fit.
  • Lorient's own mini-resurgence has similarly been down to an in-form striker, and they could founder without Bamba leading the line.
