After their emphatic win over Monaco last week, Lyon will be looking to extend their run of good form when they host the struggling Angers at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the 19th week of Ligue 1.
The hosts have shown very strong performances in the last few weeks. Lyon have won all but one game in their last 5 Ligue 1 fixtures. They collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Monaco away from home where they managed to get a deserved 3-1 victory.
Lyon are sitting 4th in the league table with 31 points with a game in hand from 10 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses. They have scored 32 goals and conceded 19 since the start of the season.
Maxime Gonalons is a doubt ahead of the reception of Angers after picking up a thigh injury shortly before kick-off at the weekend. Bruno Genesio will be keen to make as little changes as possible to the side that overcame Monaco last Sunday, which will notably depend whether Nabil Fekir and Corentin Tolisso can recover in time.
The visitors are still struggling to find their form since the start of the season. Angers who have been very solid last season, have failed to repeat what they did last year this season. The team have lost 4 of their last 5 league games, collecting just 1 point during the same period. Their last game was against Nantes at home where they lost 2-0.
Angers are sitting in 15th place in the Ligue 1 table with 19 points from 5 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 22 since the start of the season.
Yoann Andreu became the third Angers player – after Billy Ketkéophomphone and Alexandre Letellier – to rupture his cruciate ligament this season and will be ruled out for the remainder of the season. Thomas Mangani seems set to start having only missed the last game due to the birth of his child, while goalkeeper Mathieu Michel could also return to action here.
