The Lyon team will challenge the Havre AC team in a Matchday 5 French Ligue 1 in Groupama Stadium Stadium, Décines-Charpieu on Sunday, September 17, 2023. For streaming coverage of Lyon vs Havre AC, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Lyon, who do not yet have a manager after Laurent Blanc was sacked, hope to achieve their first Ligue 1 win of the season when they host Le Havre at the Groupama Stadium on Sunday (17/9) evening local time.
Los Gones are at the bottom of the standings after getting just one point from their first four games, while last season’s Ligue 2 champions occupy a top ten position.
This match will be a chance for Lyon to bounce back from the 4-1 defeats they suffered to Paris Saint-Germain and Montpellier in the last fortnight, which was the last straw for Laurent Blanc.
Le Havre, on the other hand, have enjoyed a very promising start to the season, losing just one of their four games since promotion to the top tier of French football for the first time since 2009.
The visitors are led by 41-year-old Slovenian manager Luka Elsner, who guided them to the Ligue 2 trophy last season while conceding just 19 goals in 38 games. Le Havre also boasts sharp strikers, in Nabil Alioui and Daler Kuzyayev, who have scored five goals together in their first four Ligue 1 appearances.
Meanwhile, Lyon will be without former Liverpool and Southampton centre-back Dejan Lovren for an indefinite period as he continues to recover from a muscle injury. However, veteran striker Alexandre Lacazette will lead the line on Sunday, with Rayan Cherki offering attacking support to the lone striker, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles could join Corentin Tolisso in midfield.
On the other hand, the home side will also struggle without Bradley Barcola and Castello Lukeba, who joined Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig during the summer transfer window, while Houssem Aouar and Karl Toko Ekambi also left the Groupama Stadium.
Who will win? Lyon desperately need a win to lift their spirits after a poor start to the season, but they will face a confident and dangerous Le Havre side. The visitors have enough offensive power to exploit Lyon’s defensive weaknesses. The final result of this match is estimated to be a draw.
