Lyon vs Nantes team news

Lyon

Not only did Lion win two games in a row for the first time this season, their win in the last round came away from home against Monaco, who are currently 3rd in the standings. So, given that all of their three wins so far have come in their last six games, it looks like Lion are getting into good form and that their fans can hope to soon be out of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Johann Lepenant and Remy Riou remain out with injuries, while freshly injured Nicolas Tagliafico and Alexandre Lacazette are doubtful for this game.

Predicted LineupLopes – O'Brien, Lovren, Caleta-Car – Mata, Caqueret, Tolisso, Silva – Cherki, Jeffinho – Kadewere

Nantes

With four losses in their last six matches in Ligue 1, it's clear that Nantes have struggled recently. Overall, the team is in the 11th place in the standings, but they are now just five points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone and their next opponent Lion.

When it comes to team news, Ignatius Ganago and Bastien Meupiyou are out with injuries, while Ronael Pierre-Gabriel is suspended.

Player to watch: Jake O'Brien

With 3 goals and 1 assists in Ligue 1 this season and in just 10 games, Jake O'Brien has been one of the key contributors to Lion's offence, even though he is a defender. With that in mind, he's our player to watch in this match.
