In the first match on Sunday in French Ligue 1, Lyon host Guingamp.
Lyon is in the great form with four consecutive wins and if they continue with the good performance they even can be in the race for the title.
At the beginning of the season Lyon failed to qualify in the UEFA Europa League after they had been eliminated against Astra, so they could focus on Ligue 1 and the results are coming.
Home team is a big favorite in this match and they shouldn’t have too much problems to take all three points.
For this match L. Rose (4/0 d), Ferri (10/0 m), Gourcuff (7/3 m), Grenier (0/0 m) and G. Fofana (0/0 m) are all out.
Guingamp started this season terrible and after 12 rounds they are standing at the relegation zone. They have quality squad and they deserve better position, but they played very bad.
After humiliation at home against Nice 2-7, Guingamp improved their performance and managed to win the last two matches. Last week they beat Bastia 1-0, while in Europa League they were better side and beat Dinamo Minsk 2-0.
For the match against Lyon, the visitors have many problems with the absences, especially in defence.
The first goalkeeper Samassa (7/0 gk), Angoua (5/0 d), Lemaître (5/0 d), Lévêque (5/0 d), Cardy (0/0 m), Dos Santos (5/0 m), Douniama (4/1 f) and their second top scorer Schwartz (10/2 f) are all out.
Another important thing, they played in Europe League three days ago, so this match will be their 3rd game in the last 9 days.
However, Lyon is a big favorite to take another three points and I believe they will win this match.
