Lyon will be looking to get back to winning ways in the French League as they play host to Amiens SC at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. Rudi Garcia’s Lyon Unit currently occupies the 6th spot in Ligue 1 with 32 points as they recently endured a 2-1 defeat to OGC Nice. Meanwhile, Amines SC is going through an underwhelming season as they are 18th in the league with 19 points on board and are five points away from the safe zone for now.
Date- Wednesday, February 5
Kick-Off- 11:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Parc Olympique Lyonnais
Fernando Marcal will miss out the upcoming fixture after getting sent off against OGC Nice. Leo Dubois, Youssouf Kone, Memphis Depay, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Oumar Solet are all on the sidelines due to injury. Anthony Lopes remains in doubt to start due to a shoulder injury which he sustained recently. Karl Ekambi, Moussa Dembele and Maxwel Cornet should be leading the line of attack. Houssem Aouar, Thiago Mendes and Bertrand Traore could fill in at midfield.
Head-coach Luka Elsner could persist with the same eleven that squared off in the goalless draw against Toulouse. Dibassy, Chedjou, Opoku and Galabresi should be starting as the back four. Cornette, Blin, Monconduit and Kakuta are likely to accommodate midfield, with Konate and Guirassy in contention of leading the attack.
LYN (Expected Playing 11)- Tatarusanu; Cornet, Denayer, Andersen, Tete; Tousart, Mendes; Aouar, Cherki, Traore; Dembele
AMI (Expected Playing 11)- Gurtner; Dibassy, Chedjou, Opoku, Calabresi; Mendoza, Zungu, Moncoduit, Kakuta; Konate, Guirassy
Moussa Dembele has been pivotal in the attacking front for Lyon. The 23-year-old has 12 goals and an assist with a pass accuracy of 71.1% from 1712 minutes in Ligue 1 this season.
Serhou Guirassy could pack a punch for Amiens. Guirassy has five goals, an assist and a pass accuracy of 71.5% from 18 appearances in the league this season.
Houssem Aouar has been impressive in the midfield position for Lyon. Aouar has two goals, four assists and a pass accuracy of 86.2% from 1543 minutes in the league this season.
Moussa Konate will be one of the key men on the attack for Amiens. Konate has two goals from 73.2% from 520 minutes in the league this season.
From the last six games between the two sides, Lyon has won five games, while the most recent fixture ended on level terms.
Lyon will be stepping in as the favourites in front of home support.
