Olympique Lyon vs. Stade Reims begins 11.01.2019 at 20:45 CET
Lyon has played on several fronts this season, but they were a few days ago unexpectedly eliminated from the League Cup after a home defeat by Strasbourg. They could avoid this defeat if Fekir has scored a penalty, but he did not, so they have the championship, Cup and Champions League. They have also unexpectedly lost in the championship from Rennes, after which they easily defeated Monaco and played a draw with Montpellier in the last round. They have performed with similar in that duel, as well as against Strasbourg, so we do not expect any major changes now.
Probable lineups Olympique Lyon: A.Lopes – Marcel, Denayer, Marcal – Tete, Tousart, Aouar, Mendy – Fekir, B.Traore, Depay
Reims is playing very well lately, so they have lost only once in the last six rounds. They were defeated by Toulouse at home, after which they played two draws and a victory. They often play unresolved and there were no winners in eight games of Reims. A draw against the second-placed Lille was a good achievement, but then they defeated Strasbourg with 2-1. In the last round, they played a home draw with Caen and then a victory over Lens in the Cup. Coach Guion does not change the starting lineup too much, while Ojo could now be the first striker.
Probable lineups Stade Reims: Mendy – Engels, Abdelhamid, Konan – Romao, Chavalerin – Oudin, Marin, Cafaro – Ojo
Olympique Lyon vs. Stade Reims PICK
Lyon was eliminated from the League Cup and do not want to make another blunder at home, so we believe they will dominate in this match. Reims is playing pretty well, but they will still be in a subordinate position against Lyon and we do not believe they can avoid defeat, which may be somewhat more convincing.
