The Cottagers lost 3-0 to the Turkish Super Lig runners-up in the match which saw them completely fail to create in the final third.

Interestingly, the Cottagers are yet to make a deal in the summer transfer window and it’s more than obvious they will have to sign someone up front after predator Aleksandar Mitrovic returned to Newcastle United after spending the second part of the previous season at Craven Cottage.

Jokanovic should be happier to know that his troops are about to take on Lyon whose defensive habits are more than questionable.

Such statement was best proved last Friday when Les Gones only drew 2-2 to Swiss Sion even though the head coach Bruno Genesio line-up a pretty respectable squad with Mariano Diaz, Cornet and Ndombele in the starting XI.

Lyon vs Fulham: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between Lyon and Fulham.

Lyon vs Fulham: Prediction

Lyon did not make plenty of changes to their squad either. Unlike their counterparts, they do not have a particular reason to do it knowing they finished the previous term of Ligue 1 just two points shy of Monaco at the second position. Les Gones completed the Tanguy Ndombele transfer after the former Amiens SC midfielder spent the last season on loan at Gerland.

Nabil Fekir is still not with the team, while winger Memphis Depay might feature after skipping the Sion clash. Even though Lyon also disappointed in a 2-2 draw to the Swiss outfit, we see them as favourites to grab the victory here. Backing goals at both ends is also a decent idea based on Lyon’s playing style and in spite of Fulham’s lack of creativity against Fener.
