Preview

Olympique Lyonnais and Lens face at Groupama Stadium, in a match for the 18th round of the Ligue 1. There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 17‑01‑2015, the match ended with the final score: Lens (0‑2) Olympique Lyonnais. Lens registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis Lyon

The home team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 36 points won, after 10 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Nice, by (1‑4). In the last match, they won in a home match against Nantes, by (3‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 17 conceded.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 8 home matches. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2. In the last 10 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 8 of their 19 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Lyon comes motivated for this journey after a 3-0 home win against Nantes: Toko Ekambi, Kadewere and Lucas Paquetá scored the goals of the triumph. The home team usually plays in a 4-3-3 tactical system, giving more importance to a way of playing that is well supported and progressing on the field through constant triangulations. Rudi Garcia's teammates know that they will have a relatively easy encounter, given that Lens has shown a lot of irregularity in their matches. For this match, the Lyon coach will not be able to count on Moussa Dembélé and Bruno Guimarães because they are injured.

Confirmed Lineup: Anthony Lopes, Léo Dubois, Mattia De Sciglio, Sinaly Diomande, Jason Denayer, Thiago Mendes, Lucas Paquetá, Houssem Aouar, Memphis Depay, Maxwel Cornet.
Coach: R. Garcia.

Analysis Lens

The away team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 27 points won, after 8 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Metz, by (2‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Brest, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 23 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Lens has a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, so they have won 13 points out of 24 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (31'‑45'); they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Lens comes motivated for this match after a home win, by 2-1, against Brest: Muinga and Sotoca scored the winning goals. The away team will be likely playing in a 5-2-3 tactical system, and should adopt a more defensive posture, with the aim of trying as hard as possible not to suffer any goal caused by tactical errors. In this scheme, the three players who will occupy more advanced zones on the pitch are Arnaud Kalimuendo, Simon Banza and Florian Sotoca. It should be noted that the player who is going to put his vision of the game into practice, with the objective of defining the best attacks of his team, is the Frenchman Seko Fofana. Coach Franck Haise is expected to have only two absences for this match, both due to injury: Cheick Traoré and Facundo Medina.

Confirmed Lineup: Jean-Louis Leca, Jonathan Clauss, Jonathan Gradit, Steven Fortes, Loic Bade, Gaël Kakuta, Seko Fofana, Cheick Oumar Doucouré, Florian Sotoca, Ismaël Boura, Igniatius Ganago.
Coach: F. Haise.
