Friday night brings us action from the French top flight and a Ligue 1 encounter between 7th placed Lyon and their 12th placed visitors, Toulouse, when the two teams lock horns at the Groupama Stadium, with the hosts looking to halt a worrying four-match losing streak while Toulouse will be looking to post back to back wins in the domestic top flight following their win against Montpellier last time out.

Lyon Preview – Can Lyon halt losing slump?

Lyon had made an impressive start to this season’s Ligue 1 campaign as the hosts had put together a five-match unbeaten run, picking up four wins out of their opening five games and things seemed to heading in the right direction for Peter Bosz’s side after this encouraging start to the new season.

Early season victories over Ajaccio, Troyes, Auxerre and Angers, all of which were registered on home soil at their Groupama Stadium handed the hosts the perfect start to this new season but this wasn’t to last for long as the hosts have since stumbled to a worrying four-match losing streak which has undone all of their good work earlier in the season.

Recent defeats to Lorient, Monaco, PSG and Lens have slowed down Lyon’s early impressive momentum to the extent that the hosts now find themselves outside of the top five pack, sitting in 7th place and a significant 10 points adrift of the top two clubs and the Champions League spots.

However, it should be noted that three of these four defeats that have been handed to Lyon were actually incurred on their travels with the exception of a narrow 1-0 loss at home to the current Ligue 1 leaders, PSG, but otherwise, Lyon’s results on home soil have been pretty consistent and impressive.

The hosts have won eight out of their last nine Ligue 1 matches in their own backyard which includes Lyon scoring 2 goals or more in each of the preceding eight wins on the trot, so the hosts will still feel confident about their chances against Toulouse in this upcoming clash on Friday night, especially as Lyon have won each of the previous four meetings on the trot against their visitors in previous exchanges.

Toulouse Preview – Can Toulouse manage to contain their hosts?

Toulouse recorded a welcome 4-2 home win against Montpellier in their previous match in Ligue 1 which became the visitors’ third league win of this new French top flight campaign and followed earlier victories gained over Troyes and Reims upon their return to the domestic top flight.

It’s been two seasons since Toulouse last appeared in Ligue 1 and the visitors have more or less managed to hold their own so far this term as they occupy the relative safety of 12th place in the Ligue 1 standings prior to this weekend’s action and this upcoming trip to the Groupama Stadium.

However, two of Toulouse’s three wins to date have been registered on home soil at their Stadium de Toulouse, while just one win out of their opening four games so far this season on the road suggests Toulouse could find things tough going on Friday night against a motivated Lyon outfit who are keen to put an end to their current losing streak.

An opening 3-0 win away at Troyes gave Toulouse the perfect start on their travels but this early victory has been superceded by three subsequent defeats on the trot as Toulouse have fallen victim of defeats at Nantes, Clermont and Lille respectively, conceding a total of seven goals and scoring just 2 in reply.

In addition, the bigger picture offers an alarming insight as to how bad Toulouse have been on their travels in the domestic top flight as the visitors have managed to win just one of their last 27 outings on the road which must surely be one of the worst away records across all of the major European top flight divisions.
