KICK off: 29 January 22:00
Information: Lyon will welcome Lucas Paqueta back from suspension for this game, but competition for places in Garcia’s midfield is rife now that Maxence Caqueret has forced his way back into the team. Paqueta may have to make do with a spot on the bench unless Garcia opts to drop Bruno Guimaraes – which is unlikely – but Houssem Aouar missed out the derby win through injury and remains doubtful here.
Maxwell Cornet is also struggling to shake off a muscular problem, so Mattia De Sciglio should continue to deputise at left-back. Bordeaux’s upturn in form has corresponded with a near-empty medical room, as only Otavio and Mehdi Zerkane are currently sidelined through injury. However, Gasset could look to bolster his engine room before the transfer window closes, as both Toma Basic and Yacine Adli are only one booking away from a suspension.
Lyon possible starting lineup: Lopes; Dubois, Denayer, Marcelo, De Sciglio; Mendes, Caqueret, Guimaraes; Kadewere, Depay, Toko Ekambi
Bordeaux possible starting lineup: Costil; Sabaly, Koscielny, Baysse, Benito; Basic, Adli; Oudin, Ben Arfa, Kalu; Hwang
