Lyon – Statistics & Current Form
Lyon has a lot to celebrate this season. The team of Bruno Genesio was especially convincing on the international stage. Lyon did not lose a single match in the Champions League and deservedly prevailed as group runners-up. In the knockout stages, the clash between Lyon and FC Barcelona will take place. Before the duel is due next week, Genesio’s team will be back on the win. The bitter defeat in Nice made sure that Lille’s cushion was raised from three to six points. It was already the fifth league defeat in the current season. With 27 goals conceded in the previous league operation, it was somehow foreseeable that the Genesio-Elf also gets a goal in Nice. On the defensive Lyon still has some catching up to do. With a home crowd, Lyon have a record of 7-3-2 in Ligue 1 this season. At home, they even won 2-1 at home to leaders Paris Saint-Germain. Before the defeat to Nice Lyon could build a series of five consecutive victories. While Lyon face Guingamp at home, Lille face Montpellier at home. To possibly punish a point loss from Lille, the Genesio Elf on Friday must not allow mistakes.
Among the outstanding offensive players in Lyons ranks comes on the Guingamp defensive a lot. Players such as Fekir, Depay and Traore form one of Ligue 1’s strongest offensive trios. In addition, Genesio has a formidable striker Dembele. In his previous 19 appearances, there were eleven points scorer for the center forward of Lyon. With Ndiaye, Rafael da Silva and Gouiri, three players will be out on Friday night. Further serious failures are not to be complained to the crew of Genesio. Surprisingly, Lyon could not score a goal in the final league game against Nice, although the Genesio team could dominate for long stretches offensively. In front of home crowd, the Lyon offensive should resume speed and give the table last one or the other goal. Right from the start, Lyon will pressure its opponents to take the lead early on. In the course of the game Genesio will certainly spare one or the other players for the upcoming CL game against Barcelona. Anything but a Lyon vs. Guingamp prediction in favor of the home side would probably be characterized by much optimism.

Guingamp – Statistics & Current Form
As table-top there was not much to celebrate for Guingamp this season. In the media, the historic 0-9 defeat of Guingamp against PSG made headlines. In the fight for the league to collect such a big bankruptcy, then it is not easy to handle, even if the opponent was called PSG. With 48 conceded goals in 23 games, Guingamp has the worst defensive defeat in Ligue 1. In addition, coach Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side have the worst offensive. Guingamp were without Ligue 1 goals three times in a row. In the League Cup, Guingamp prevailed over Monaco to play the Cup final against Strasbourg at the end of March. In the French Cup (Coupe de France) was for Guingamp last against Lyon. Less than a week ago, Guingamp had nothing to gain against the Ligue 1 league leaders. The late goal for the 1: 2 was only a small result correction. The previous yield of Guingamp speaks for itself. Even if it is partially uphill in terms of performance, Guingamp can hardly benefit from it. With the lousy offensive game to take countable, Gourvennec is not easy. Five points is the gap to Monaco, which are on the relegation place. Can the Gourvennec team make a surprise in Lyon? Guingamp rates from 11.00 on a score score.
Most valuable player in the squad of Gourvennec is currently Didier Ndong. Players who stand out with their individual quality from the squad are searched in vain at Guingamp. Marcus Thuram (center forward) is the glimmer of hope in Guingamp’s poor offensive. The 21-year-old scored seven of Guingamp’s 18 goals and was also able to prepare a goal for his team-mates. Guingamp will not look well in the second half if the bad form continues. Even the minimal point win from Lyon would be grateful to receive. Gourvennec in Lyon will certainly want to avoid being shot down 0: 9 in Paris.
Expected lineup of Guingamp:
Caillard; Eboa Eboa, Kerbrat, Rebocho, Traore; Blas, Ndong, Phiri; Coco, Mendy, Thuram
