Unbeaten in their last four games in Ligue 1, Saint-Etienne will be looking to extend their run of good results when they host the inconsistent Lyon side at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in the 23rd round of the French top flight.
The Hosts Are Ready
The home side have been struggling to find their form since the start of the season. They seem to have done that in recent games as the team are unbeaten in their last four games straight in Ligue 1. Saint-Étienne have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Toulouse away from home where they won 3-0.
Saint-Étienne are currently sitting in the 5th place in the league table. They have 33 points from 8 wins, 9 draws and 5 losses. The team scored 24 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Jordan Veretout is available again after serving a suspension in midweek. Vincent Pajot was on the bench in the Coupe de France and could make the XI, while new signing Jorginho may make the bench.
The Visitors Lack Consistency
The visitors are without their main striker in recent weeks. They have won three out of their last five games in Ligue 1. Lyon have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Lille at home where they lost 2-1.
Lyon are currently sitting in the 4th place in the league table. They have 37 points from 12 wins, 1 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 40 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Alexandre Lacazette has resumed training after missing the midweek loss to Marseille in the Coupe de France. Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa served a suspension in midweek, but will be back in the side for this match. Mathieu Valbuena could be dropped after being replaced for Nabil Fekir against Marseille.
Head To Head
Saint-Étienne have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in October 2016 when the final score was 2 – 0 to Lyon at home.
