Football: the SM Caen has a good chance to play against Lyon


Stade Malherbe Caen (Calvados) organizes Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday 15 September 2018 in the Ornano stadium for the 5th day of the Ligue 1. The Norsemen have a great opportunity to see Gones still watching.

The poster can be unbalanced. On the one hand, the Stade Malherbe Caen (Calvados), just saved last year. On the other hand Olympique Lyonnais, podium candidate and qualified for the Champions League. However, the opposition could be much more balanced on Saturday evening September 15, 2018 in the Ornano stadium, where the Normans welcome the OL on the 5the League 1 day.

A nice dynamic

Fabien Mercadal, the SMC coach, can count on a complete group and the contribution of his flagship rookie, striker Claudio Beauvue, already scorer in Dijon. He can also rely on great dynamism: apart from the inaugural defeat against the Parisian bogeyman, his players have not bowed once: a draw against Nice, another against Nantes and a victory in Dijon (2-0). A promising start to the season in which they are at 12e place with 5 points.

A Lyon that doubts

In contrast, the Lyonnais certainly have another point (8e with 6 points), the atmosphere does not look good. The error on faux pas in Reims and at home against Nice (0-1 each time). Bruno Genesio will also have to do without his defender Marçal and his striker Gouiri, badly injured. He will be able to count on Moussa Dembelé, the striker recruited at Celtic Glasgow, who makes his first appearance in the Rhône group. A new danger that Djiku and Baysse must see as milk on fire.
