Lyon predicted XI vs PSG: Alexandre Lacazette fit to start, Ernest Nuamah to return

Lyon will be hoping to continue their hunt for European football after an impressive comeback win against Brest last time out, as they face perhaps France’s toughest task when they travel to the Parc des Princes to face PSG on Sunday evening.

L’Equipe report that Pierre Sage is set to make three changes to his team, who made a brave comeback by beating Brest 4-3 in their last match. One of these changes is forced because Nicolás Tagliafico is suspended for the match after receiving a red card against Les Pirates. As a result, Henrqiue will become the World Cup winner’s deputy.

Another change in defense is expected, with Duje Ćaleta-Car starting at center back and replacing makeshift center back Clinton Mata. Lyon’s midfield will remain unchanged. Sage’s final change should be in attack, with Ernest Nuamah set to return and replace Malick Fofana. Lacazette will be fit to start despite having to leave against Brest due to a possible injury.

Lyon likely XI vs PSG:

Anthony Lopes – Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Duje Ćaleta-Car, Jake O’Brien, Henrique – Nemanja Matić, Maxence Caqueret, Corentin Tolisso – Ernest Nuamah, Alexandre Lacazette, Saïd Benrahma.
