Team News

Strasbourg
Lyon
  • Even with a new manager and a raft of new players, Strasbourg should continue to play with the same familiar 3-5-2 system.
  • New signing Emanuel Emegha is also an option in attack for the hosts.
  • Castello Lukeba and Karl Toko Ekambi are both linked with moves away and won't feature here.
  • New signing Duje Caleta-Car should start in defence in Lukeba's place.
  • Johann Lepenant could also be an option at the base of midfield.

Prediction

  • This will be an early litmus test for two teams who both see themselves as strong contenders for Europe.
  • Lyon have a more experienced squad, and more continuity, both on the bench and on the pitch, but don't rule out La Meinau's famous atmosphere playing a role.
