Lyon suffered a completely unexpected defeat away to Nice last weekend with a 1:0 result. The only goal came via a penalty kick and must be said that the guests looked better and created more, but paid the price of being inefficient. The side is now six points behind second Lille and needs a victory badly.
Guingamp comes from a 0:2 defeat at home against Lille, as the side appeared too passive in not enough attractive game where the players of Lille pulled out a victory without creating much. Thanks to this defeat, Guingamp remained at the rock bottom position with six points less than safely placed Dijon.
Defender Raffael (11/0) remains sidelined for the hosts. Visiting side miss forward N’Gbakoto (12/0) and suspended defender Djilobodji (2/0).
There’s a lot of individual and team quality difference that speaks in favor of Lyon. However, they are not that reliable at the back and can easily concede against many, while the side alone remains more than capable of scoring three here.
