Lyon predicted XI vs Lens: Anthony Lopes to replace penalty-hero Lucas Perri

Lyon will be hoping to make it 7 successive victories in all competitions as they prepare to welcome an out-of-sorts Lens side who are winless in their last four matches. 

L’Équipe report that Pierre Sage is set to make one change from his OL side who progressed victoriously in the Coupe de France on penalties after a 0-0 draw with Strasbourg. Surprisingly, that one change comes between the sticks, with Anthony Lopes replacing Lucas Perri. The Brazilian shot-stopper was the hero for Les Gones in midweek as he saved Thomas Delaine’s penalty. 

With only one change, this means that Lyon should keep a familiar look to their starting eleven. Newly signed loanees, Orel Mangala and Saïd Benrahma, should keep their places as Pierre Sage looks to build on momentum and avoid disruption by changing a winning team. 

Lyon likely XI vs Lens: 

Anthony Lopes – Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Duje Ćaleta-Car, Jake O’Brien, Nicolás Tagliafico – Nemanja Matić, Maxence Caqueret, Orel Mangala – Ernest Nuamah, Alexandre Lacazette, Saïd Benrahma.
