A big match at Bordeaux to restart D1 Arkema (15h on Canal + Sport)
A week after having started 2020 well with a big win against OM (9-1), in the Round of 32 of the Coupe de France, Lyon return to D1 Arkema with a trip to Bordeaux. The goal will be to win to keep 5 points ahead of PSG at the top of the table, while Bordeaux hopes to keep second place and a spot in the Champions League in its crosshairs.
In their first meeting the players of Jean-Luc Vasseur had a big 4-0 win against Les Girondines, thanks to goals from Henry, Hegerberg, Parris, and van de Sanden. But since then, Bordeaux has confirmed its status as a serious outsider by recording 5 wins in a row, with 17 goals scored against only 2 conceded. The teammates of the formidable attackers Shaw and Asseyi have also qualified for the Round of 16 of the Coupe de France by winning away to Paris FC (1-1, 5-4 pen).
For this duel at the top, the Lyonnais coach can count on the returns of Hegerberg and Cascarino, absnet last weekend. Eugenie Le Sommer will be absent due to a calf strain.
