Last 5 precedents that go in favor of the Lyon (3-1-1). Leg prevailed OL on the result 0-3.
TEAM AT HOME:
Lyon (4th in the standings) now seems to have lost most of their hopes for direct access in the Champions League, it is left with just 37 points (9/1/12) to -12 from Monaco. It comes from external defeat against St. Etienne (2-0) and at home so far earned just 21 points (7-0-4).
ABSENT: Diakhaby (d. 1 goal) is injured. Tolisso (sc. 4 goals, 2 assists) and Ghezzal (c. 2 goals, 2 assists) are disqualified. N’Koulou (d.) Is unavailable.
Nancy (11th in championship) is playing a really good league despite being a newly promoted with 7 victories won so far (7-6-9). Comes from the win against Nantes (0-2) away from home but so far has only won two matches, although not doing so bad (2-5-4).
ABSENT: Chrétien (d.) Is injured. Muratori (d.) Is disqualified.
The OL has really gotten a bad beating in St. Etienne, a blow that we had anticipated 1×2 fine. Fatal the two goals conceded from Lyon in just 23 minutes, also ended the match with two very thick expulsions or Ghezzal Tolisso. Great victory of Nancy however, that despite having done little or nothing against Nantes still managed to go 2 times goals, wins in the end who will score no? Match anything to go by this, the OL needs to return to winning ways after two consecutive defeats and certainly has to use this challenge to start to earn the 3 points by trying to get a goal on the other three in the standings although now the Champions goal seems almost faded, but never say never.
