Lyon predicted XI v Strasbourg: Rayan Cherki and Lucas Perri start again in Coupe de France

Pierre Sage’s Olympique Lyonnais come into this Coupe de France quarter-final on a brilliant run of form as they look to secure their 6th consecutive win across all competitions. 

Rayan Cherki has had a poor season where the mercurial creator has struggled to fit into the plans of any of the three managers that have taken charge of Les Gones. His last start was in the Round of 16 victory over Lille OSC, and Sage will once again field Cherki in this competition. 

Lucas Perri, the winter signing from Botafogo, was brought in as the backup goalkeeper to Anthony Lopes, which has seen his features limited only to cup appearances so far. Sage will once again trust Perri in this round as Lyon search for a semi-final berth for the second year running.
