Lyon-Nantes, composition: Pierre Sage makes an important decision for his 11!


By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique Lyonnais faces FC Nantes for the 17th day of Ligue 1, this Wednesday (9 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for OL.

After a cataclysmic first part of the season, Olympique Lyonnais achieved a rather unexpected little series. The Rhone club has had two successes to finally abandon its place as bottom red and get its head above water. Winners of Toulouse (3-0) and Monaco (1-0), Les Gones have the opportunity to confirm this revival just before the holidays. To do this, we will have to avoid the trap set by Nantes.

Pierre Sage relies on all his strengths

For this match, Pierre Sage should confirm his guideline of relying on all his executives. An approach that contrasts radically with that of his predecessor, Fabio Grosso. Anthony Lopes, Alexandre Lacazette, but also Dejan Lovren or Corentin Tolisso are expected in the Lyonnais starting lineup this Wednesday evening at Groupama Stadium.

Concerning the case of Rayan Cherki, Pierre Sage should also continue to rely on the French international Espoir. The attacking midfielder has long crystallized Lyon’s problems in recent months. His situation is no longer a subject in the current context.

The expected line-up for OL : Lopes – O’Brien, Lovren, Caleta-Car – Mata, Tolisso, Caqueret, Tagliafico – Nuamah, Lacazette, Cherki.
