Lyon won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat last time out to RC Lens.

In that game, Lyon had 48% possession and 4 shots on goal with 0 of them on target. On the other side, Lens got 21 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Florian Sotoca (82') scored for RC Lens.

It has been seldom in recent times where Lyon have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Lyon have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals along the way. We will find out if that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.

Coming into this contest, Lyon are unbeaten in the league by Toulouse in their last 11 matches. A long run without a loss.

Toulouse go into this game following a 4-2 Ligue 1 win to defeat Montpellier in their last outing.

In that match, Toulouse managed 43% possession and 12 shots on goal with 6 on target. For Toulouse, the scorers were Stijn Spierings (18'), Zakaria Aboukhlal (24'), Farès Chaïbi (31') and Brecht Dejaegere (48'). Montpellier had 23 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Nicolas Cozza (7') and Elye Wahi (68') scored for Montpellier.

ℹ️ Team News: Lyon
Castello Lukeba (Muscle Injury), Romain Faivre (Dead Leg) and Julian Pollersbeck (Knee Surgery) will not be taking part for Lyon gaffer Peter Bosz.

We think that Lyon should opt for a 4-3-3 system in the match, handing starts to Anthony Lopes, Henrique, Thiago Mendes, Sinaly Diomande, Nicolas Tagliafico, Mathis Rayan Cherki, Johann Lepenant, Maxence Caqueret, Tetê, Alexandre Lacazette and Karl Toko Ekambi.

🗞️ Team News: Toulouse
Due to a mostly available squad, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Toulouse boss Philippe Montanier to be concerned with. Rhys Healey (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.

We believe Toulouse seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 formation by sending out Maxime Dupe, Anthony Rouault, Rasmus Nicolaisen, Moussa Diarra, Issiaga Sylla, Stijn Spierings, B. van den, Brecht Dejaegere, Farès Chaïbi, Thijs Dallinga and Zakaria Aboukhlal.

🔮 Prediction
We’re of the opinion that Lyon can and should be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.

At the same time, Toulouse may well find it hard to score but do we see them converting at least once here, too.

We’re therefore expecting to see a 3-1 victory for Lyon by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
