Competition: Ligue 1 Date: Saturday 22nd October 2016 Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais Kick-Off: 16:00 BST
Lyon will be without the injured Christophe Jallet and Nabil Fekir is also likely to be absent following his red card against OGC Nice last week, which is unlikely to be rescinded.
Emanuel Mammana and Maciej Rybus will be assessed ahead of kick-off after missing the midweek defeat to Juventus.
Visitors Guingamp remain without long-term absentees Reynald Lemaître and Nicolas Benezet, whilst Jonathan Pereira is unlikely to feature despite returning to training this week.
Lyon’s campaign has taken a big hit in the last week, with a defeat to OGC Nice last weekend leaving them off the pace in Ligue 1 and the French side are stuttering in the Champions League after failing to use their one-man advantage over Juventus, ending the match with a 1-0 defeat.
Bruno Génésio’s side desperately need a victory, having already lost seven matches in all competitions so far this season, and a failure to secure all three points against Guingamp could result in him losing his job with Les Gones- although there is reportedly no immediate danger.
Guingamp, meanwhile, find themselves one-point ahead of Lyon after their 1-0 victory over Lille last week. That result was a positive reaction after back-to-back defeats before the international break but they need to ensure they keep up consistency, which will be difficult against a side of Lyon’s calibre.
