Lyon vs Guingamp

Lyon welcome Guingamp to the Groupama Stadium in a game they need to win to set themselves up for a week in which they will go to Cyprus to face Apollon Limassol in the UEFA Europa League. They then head to the capital to play Paris Saint-Germain. Revenge is the name of the game for OL, who lost home and away to Guingamp in the league last season and were also dumped out of the Coupe de la Ligue by the same opponents on penalties. The visitors come into the game fresh from a 2-0 win at home to RC Strasbourg Alsace prior to the international break, a result that left them in mid-table, two points behind OL. Antoine Kombouaré's side, who have already lost to PSG and OGC Nice this season, also had a busy transfer window and Franck Tabanou is hoping for a debut following his return to France from Swansea City. Meanwhile, Slovenian Denis Petric signed from Angers SCO just before the deadline as a back-up to Karl-Johan Johnsson in goal.
