Currently sitting in eighth position in Ligue 1, LOSC has mostly fallen short of expectations thus far this year. Les Gones had a crucial 2-1 victory over Montpellier in their previous match, and they will need to repeat that feat this weekend.
On the other hand, LOSC, who are now in sixth position in the league rankings, has struggled with consistency this year. Last week, the away team narrowly defeated Monaco 4-3, so they will need to step it up in this match.
LOSC is in a good position to climb into the top four after having a respectable start to the season. The opposition has already given Lyon problems, so they must perform well in this game.
