Lyon predicted XI v Clermont: Rayan Cherki to start, Alexandre Lacazette to drop to the bench – Get French Football News

Against bottom side Clermont Foot, Pierre Sage could make several changes to the team, with Olympique Lyonnais chasing for European football. 

A win against Clermont, who will be relegated if they lose on Sunday evening, would further consolidate OL’s European standing with just one game remaining. However, L’Équipe understands that Alexandre Lacazette, Lyon’s top scorer this season, could start the game from the bench. Mama Baldé could lead the line in his absence, with Gift Orban also starting on the bench. 

Key players such as Corentin Tolisso, Nicolás Tagliafico and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could all also drop to the bench in a much-changed side, which could see Rayan Cherki starting at right wing. Malick Fofana, who has impressed particularly off the bench, could also get a start.
