Team News: Lyon
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Lyon gaffer Rudi Garcia to contend with due to a largely intact squad. Anthony Lopes (Corona virus) misses out.
Team News: Monaco
Monaco boss Niko Kovač has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Aleksandr Golovin (Hamstring Injury) and Fodé Ballo-Touré (Metatarsal Fracture) are those who can’t be considered.
It’s likely that Monaco will have a tough assignment to put one past a Lyon side who seem set to control most aspects of this game.
