Friday at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, as Lyon host Tolouse in the Ligue 1.

This clash sees twelfth play seventh, as struggling Tolouse visit the Parc Olympique Lyonnais to face Lyon.

It’s 13 points so far for Lyon this season, going into this meeting

With a win in their previous game, (1-0) against RC Lens, Lyon will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, with an unfortunate Lyon that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Peter Bosz’s men form is worryingly poor. The Kids should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With a seventh position in the league and 4 wins, 4 losses and 1 draws, they currently have 13 points in the League having won four fixtures, drawn one game, and lost four games.

When Lyon host Tolouse, they will do so on the back of four wins and one defeats on their own ground.

Lyon will have 16 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Lyon have a good scoring record this season, with 16 netted so far (15 from open play and one penalty). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Karl Toko Ekambi (4), Alexandre Lacazette (4), and Tete (4). Lyon have conceded 11 goals.

Lyon may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Tolouse FC arrive at this game, having secured 11 points so far this season

Tolouse will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Montpellier and Lille.

Also, Philippe Montanier’s Tolouse have lost four of their last six fixtures this season. With 11 points, they currently sit twelfth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws having won three matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost four meetings.

Tolouse will travel to Lyon with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one win and three losses.

Tolouse FC will have 14 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Tolouse are likely to be missing two of their key players when they start Friday’s game, due to injury and illness.
