Olympique Lyon vs AS Monaco
Competition: French Ligue 1 *-*-* Date: 13 October 2017
Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT
Venue: Groupama Stadium, Lyon
 
Coach, Genesi’s players, have only one defeat this season, which took place in the championship by the leading Paris Saint Germain away, but they have also played four draws in the last five matches. They did it twice in UEFA Europa league, against Apollon away and at home with the Italian team, Atalanta, while, in the championship, they played 3-3, against Dijon and Angers.
However, when taking into account that defeat at Prince’s Park, then it is quite clear why Olympique Lyon is currently only 8th in Ligue 1, which means that they should not lose any points in this derby with Monaco. As a result, the team has to fix their defence, since it has been said that they have received eight goals in the last three matches. Concerning players, defender Marcal and midfielder Cheikh will miss this match due to injuries, while the suspended striker Marcelo is still out of action.
On the other side and, as for the current French champions, this two-season break was certainly very welcome in their team, given that they had two very bad performances at home. First, AS Monaco was defeated in the UEFA Champions League with 3-0 by Porto, which has significantly reduced the team's chances of being ranked in the knockout phase, so they played only 1-1 in the championship against Montpellier, and their backlog for the leading PSG is again 03 points.
That is why coach Jardim now has the imperative of good result in duel with Olympique Lyon, which is on the other hand playing unpredictable, and it will be very interesting to see how this big French Ligue 1 derby will end. As for the players, the suspended midfielder, Fabinho, has no right to perform on Friday night, and Moutinho will probably fill that position, while defender Jorge and strikers Jovetic and Diakhaby are both still out of action.

Probable lineups:
Lyon: Lopes – Rafael, Diakhaby, Morel, Mendy – Tousart, Ferri – Traore, Fekir, Depay – Diaz
AS Monaco: Subasic – Toure, Glik, Jemerson, Sidibe – Ghezzal, Tielemans, Moutinho, Lemar – Falcao, Keita
