OL: Bosz makes strong choices in attack
After the defeat at the Parc des Princes, many Lyonnais cried foul, blaming Clément Turpin for whistled a questionable penalty for Paris (goal of Neymar in the 66’). “The penalty is an aberration. VAR should have intervened. The decision is not normal. The players did not deserve to lose. We’re gonna be vengeful“, had then certified Jean-Michel Aulas a few minutes after the meeting. Despite this controversy, the Lyon board seems to have found a smile. The recruits seem to fit well into the group, and the team offers attractive football. In other words, the Peter Bosz paw is felt and could be confirmed tonight against the promoted Trojan.
Facing the ESTAC precisely, the former coach of Ajax decided to significantly modify his offensive line. Starting against PSG, Islam Slimani and Karl Toko Ekambi should start the match on the bench, in favor of Houssem Aouar (on the bench against Paris) and Moussa Dembélé, returned from injury.

Goalkeeper : A. Lopes
Defender : Emerson, J. Denayer, J. Boateng, L. Dubois
Midfielders : B. Guimares, M. Caqueret
Attacker : H. Aouar, L. Paqueta, X. Shaqiri, M. Dembélé
Note in defense, the return of Léo Dubois, wounded with the French team early September. The former Nantes should resume his place on the right flank in place of a very promising Malo Gusto who had been acting.
