The composition of the teams has been given. OL notably line up Lacazette and Dembélé. serious customers. Half an hour from kick-off, the TFC players are warming up and preparing to play hard against Lyon who must win to break the spiral of defeats.
The dynamic is rather purple at the start of the Ligue 1 season and Toulouse would like to take advantage of Lyon’s bad pass. OL have 4 defeats in a row in the league, a series unworthy of their ambitions. This had not happened to the club of Jean-Michel Aulas since 1991. Lyon deprived of the European Cup this season therefore only has the championship to exist.
A new defeat could plunge OL into crisis and precipitate the departure of their coach Peter Bosz. Lyon has no choice and must therefore win. His supporters have also provided banners against the management of the club and whistles when the announcement of the composition of the team to show their dissatisfaction.
If Toulouse has not won in Lyon since 1966 (56 years!), this may be the right time to suffer there. The promoted Toulouse is not preferred, it’s true, but he has nothing to lose. He has just signed a convincing victory at home (4/2) against Montpellier. And will therefore play without complex on the banks of the Rhône. With 11 points gleaned in 9 games, the TFC has a promising start to the season.
It will be a special match for Toulouse midfielder Farès Chaîbi. Originally from Bron, trained at FC Lyon, OL is his favorite club, the one he supported when he was a child. Chaïbi will have to want to show his advantage against the Gones. For Philippe Montanier, the Toulouse coach, the motivation is optimal.
In the classification of this Ligue 1 before the meeting tonight, Lyon is 7th with 13 points, Toulouse 11th with 2 points less.
