Lens vs Lyon team news

Lens

After a rough start of the season when they lost four of their first five matches in Ligue 1, Lens managed to find their best form and they are now on an eight-game unbeaten run in the league.

That being said, Lens did suffer a rough 6-0 loss to Arsenal a few days ago in the Champions League. Regarding team news, Elye Wahi is suspended, while Oscar Cortes, Wuilker Furinez, and Jimmy Cabot are unlikely to be fit for this match.

Predicted Lineup: Samba – Khusanov, Gradit, Medina – Aguilar, Abdul Samed, Diouf, Frankowski – Sotoca, Thomasson – Said

Lyon

The once-mighty Lyon have clearly fallen far from grace, but even if they aren't the team they used to be, hardly anyone could've expected Lyon to be in the last place in Ligue 1 after nearly a third of the season gone.

Just one win in 12 games so far clearly shows how desperate the situation at the club is right now. Meanwhile, Johann Lepenant and Corentin Tolisso are currently out with injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Lopes – Kumbedi, O'Brien, Diomande, Henrique – Akouokou, Diawara, Caqueret – Cherki, Moreira, Lacazette

Player to watch: Florian Sotoca

At 33 years of age, Florian Sotoca is having one of the best seasons of his career. So far, the French forward scored three goals and added five assists in Ligue 1, so it's clear that Lens will rely on him in this match.
