🗞️ Team News: RC Lens

RC Lens manager Franck Haise does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash thanks to a fully healthy group to choose from. Facundo Medina is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

📰 Team News: Lyon

Lyon boss Rudi Garcia has to currently contend with reduced team options. Djamel Eddine Benlamri (Muscle Injury) and Houssem Aouar (Adductor problems) miss out here.

⚡ Prediction

Our feeling is that RC Lens may not find it easy to register a score against this Lyon outfit who we reckon will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.

We therefore see a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Lyon at the end of the match.

Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
