Team News: Lyon
Lenny Pintor (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Moussa Dembélé (Fissure of the fibula) and Jeff Reine-Adélaïde (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Lyon boss Peter Bosz. Anthony Lopes is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Monaco
Monaco manager Niko Kovač has some current player fitness concerns. Aleksandr Golovin (Hip Injury), Jean Marcelin (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Djibril Sidibé (Groin Injury) are those who can’t be considered. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Aurélien Tchouaméni and Sofiane Diop.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Monaco will really need to work well to get anything against this Lyon outfit who we think will manage to score & go ahead.
We therefore fancy a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Lyon at the conclusion of the game.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
