In terms of the lineup of the two sides, Lyon has Lukba, Fevre, Gusto and Polesback still injured, but Moussa Dembele and Tolisso have been able to participate in training and have the opportunity to play in this campaign. In Toulouse, Dessler was suspended, while Latang and Healy were doubtful due to injuries.

In addition, Lyon and Toulouse have faced each other 78 times in the history of Ligue 1. Lyon has an advantage of 35 wins, 20 draws and 23 wins, including 25 wins, 9 draws and 5 losses at home.
