Lyon – Toulouse : Preview & Prediction
A place for the quarter-finals will be at stake during this opposition between two clubs in difficulty this season. Olympique Lyonnais, 8th in Ligue 1, does not manage to chain the good results and remains even on 3 against performances in a row at home. The Rhone club was defeated by Lille (0-1) and Rennes (0-1) at Groupama Stadium in the league before sharing the points against Leipzig (2-2) during the last day of the Champions League. For this round of the League Cup, Rudi Garcia will not be able to count on Depay and Reine-Adélaide seriously injured this weekend. The Toulouse Football Club, the red lantern in Ligue 1, is going badly, very badly. The pink city club has just aligned 7 defeats in the last 7 days and Antoine Kombouaré does not seem to find the right solutions to get his team out of this “mess”. The Toulousans will want to take advantage of this League Cup to try to revive themselves and reach 1/4 after a success at Niort (2-1) in the previous round. Defeated against Reims (0-1) at the Stadium this weekend, the TFC remains on 3 away failures in Montpellier (3-0), Nantes (2-1) and Strasbourg (4-2).
Depay and Reine-Adélaide, injured against Rennes, will be away from the field for very long weeks.
The TFC had lost 2-3 at the Stadium in the league on a goal from Depay in added time (90th + 5).
Toulouse is in crisis with its 7 defeats in a row … The League Cup to bounce back?.
During the 1st round, the Violets had imposed themselves on Niort (2-1).
OL remain on 3 consecutive matches without success at home against Lille, Leipzig and Rennes.
Faced with the difficulties and absences of Lyon, Toulouse could hang on to their opponent or fail on the smallest of margins as in the championship match (2-3).
