Lyon vs Guingamp
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 10th September 2017
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.
Lyon opened the new season with back-to-back wins over Strasbourg and Rennes, but they failed to back it up taking only two points from following fixtures with Bordeaux and Nantes.
Can Les Gones get back on the winning ways this Sunday when they host Guingamp in the fifth round of LIgue 1 at Groupama Stadium?
Bruno Genesio’s men were moments away from maintaining the perfect record in the third round against Bordeaux but they were unlucky to concede a late stoppage-time equalizer from Malcom stunning effort from outside the box from the Brazilian striker).
Les Gones failed to find the back of the net in the fourth round’s visit to Nantes when they only played a goalless draw.
However, we don’t see yet another goalless draw from the hosts who have a deadly lineup of strikers led by Nabil Fekir and Mariano Diaz who have three goals each in opening four games of the season.
Antonie Kombouare was happy to see his team ending the negative two-loss streak two weeks ago when Guingamp saw off Strasbourg 2-0 on the home patch.
The experienced French striker Jimmy Briand opened the new season in a promising fashion and he will be the main threat to Anthony Lopes’ goal having already netted two goals so far in the campaign.
