Lyon Team News

Peter Bosz’s team experienced a crisis despite having a strong start to the season and 13 points gained in the first five games. After every subsequent game, this crisis gets worse.

Lyon players have lost their last four league contests. Their agony was made worse by their defeat to Lens in the previous round, in which they lost 0-1. Prior to that, they suffered losses to Monaco (1-2), Lorient (1-3), and Paris Saint-Germain (0-1). They currently sit in seventh place in the Ligue 1 standings with 13 points.

It is a mitigating circumstance that they won 12 out of 13 points at home. They definitely play better in front of home fans, so their performance is expected to be much better than last week against Lens.

There is a possibility that Corentin Tolisso and Moussa Dembele could return to the starting line-up for this game after being sidelined with injuries. Jerome Boateng started the last match from the bench, and will probably be a starter in the upcoming clash.

Toulouse Team News

On the other hand, after two consecutive victories in front of their fans, the Toulouse players travel to Lyon. In the last round, they were quite effective, scoring four goals and defeating Montpellier 4-2. What should be particularly pleasing to coach Philippe Montanier is the fact that four different players entered the list of scorers.

Toulouse has risen from the bottom of the standings with six points gained in its last three games, and as of the start of this match, it is in 12th place with 11 points gained. This team’s weaker away performance is their main issue. They have only earned three points in four games this season, losing three straight.

Branco van den Boomel is the best-rated player on this team. He possesses a high level of creativity, so he is capable of creating scoring chances for his teammates and is also very good at set pieces. Therefore, the quality of Toulouse’s game at the Groupamma Stadium on Friday will largely depend on his mood.


The last time these two teams met was in the 2019/20 season. Then they played three games, and Lyon won each time – 3-0, 4-1, and 3-2.

Expected lineups

Lyon (4-3-3): Lopes; Henrique, Boateng, Diomande, Tagliafico; Caqueret, Lepenant, Aouar; Tete, Lacazette, Toko Ekambi

Toulouse (4-3-3): Dupe; Diarra, Rouault, Nicolaisen, Sylla; Dejaegere, Spierings, Van den Boomen; Chaibi, Dallinga, Aboukhlal

Lyon vs. Toulouse Prediction

We believe that Lyon will raise the quality of their game in this match and register an easy victory. This team has experienced and proven individuals, so we think they can overcome Toulouse without any major problems.
