Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
There will be fireworks when Lyon and Saint-Etienne face each other in the Rhone-Alpes derby on Sunday evening. Les Gones have been in a fine form of late, and they head into the local derby following a 1-1 draw with Lille. Lyon aim to stay in the race for the title, but keep in mind that important defender Marcelo misses the game through suspension. Melvin Bard, on the other hand, returns to contention after serving his ban in the 1-1 draw with Lille.
Les Verts failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Montpellier at the weekend, with the team extending their losing run in Ligue 1 to five games. The visitors are low on confidence ahead of the Rhone-Alpes derby, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Lyon’s party at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. The likes of Trauco, Nordin, Macon, and Debuchy are injured for the visitors, while Harold Moukoudi has been tested positive for coronavirus.
