The Lyon coach, Laurent Blanc, has decided to trust one of his last defectors for the shock against Lille.
Olympique Lyonnais will have a lot to do this Wednesday evening during their duel against Lille in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France. Les Gones have made this competition a goal and that is why Laurent Blanc has fielded a very strong team for this opposition.
White reserves a surprise in attack
The Rhodaniens will be arranged in 3-4-1-2, with only three backs aligned. Diomandé, Lovren and Lukeba are tenured. A choice which could be explained by the absence of suspended Nicolas Tagliafico.
In midfield, the Cevenol maintains its confidence in Maxence Caqueret and Corentin Tolisso in the role of torchbearers. On the other hand, Thiago Mendes jumps from the returning eleven. On the sides, it is Malo Gusto and Henrique who will be responsible for evolving as pistons and providing support to the offensive sector.
The attack which, precisely, will be composed of Rayan Cherki, as well as duo Lacazette – Amin Sarr. Chaining good performances in the role of leader, the Blueberry will again be in charge. His captain also keeps his place in attack, while the young Swedish rookie will honor his first tenure with OL. He is the only permanent defector since Jeffinho is injured.
The Lyon eleven:
Anthony Lopes ; Lovren, Diamond, Lukeba; Tolisso, Caqueret – Taste, Henry ; Cherki – Lacazette, A. Sarr.
