Toulouse-Lyon: 2 very strong choices in OL’s 11!


By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique Lyonnais travels to Toulouse this Friday for the 26th day of Ligue 1 (9 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for OL.

It is with great caution that Pierre Sage approaches OL’s trip to Toulouse this Friday evening (kick-off at 9 p.m.). Despite an overall positive spiral, his team had a good reminder against Lens (0-3), before recovering against Lorient (2-0).

“It will be a different match to the one against Lorient, because Toulouse is a team even more focused on vertical play, warned Pierre Sage. They have changed their style of play and are getting pretty good results. It’s up to us to manage this aspect well. We will try to reproduce the same approach as in Lorient to prevent them from playing. »

OL finds its guide

With which starting eleven? If uncertainty hovers around the physical state of Saïd Benrahma, Olympique Lyonnais has excellent news with the return of Alexandre Lacazette. Les Gones’ top scorer is also its technical leader and providential man, as he has demonstrated since the start of the calendar year.

Lacazette is expected to be lined up from the start. On the other hand, Cherki should still start on the bench. The Espoir international is going through a delicate period, and his situation is not without consequences since his coach Thierry Henry has not called him up for the next Bleuets gathering.

The expected composition for Lyon : Lopes – Maitland-Niles, O’Brien, Caleta-Car, Tagliafico – Caqueret, Matic, Tolisso – Nuamah, Lacazette (c), Fofana.
