Nantes will host Lyon for the French Cup semi-final showdown at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau from 19:10 GMT.
Nantes are winless in their last five matches in Ligue 1. In this run, they have three defeats and two draws. They are currently 14th on the Ligue 1 table, nine points above the relegation zone. This safety from relegation gives Nantes a platform for the fight in the French Cup. This means they will be looking to beat Lyon and make it to the final.
Lyon are unbeaten in their last four outings in Ligue 1 ahead of facing PSG at the home of the champions. Lyon will be looking to leverage this positive form to have a good performance away to Nantes and bolster their chances of progressing to the final.
Nantes do not have any players injured or suspended at this time. This will boost the manager, Antoine Kombouaré, who looks to pick his strongest side for the semi-final clash with Lyon on Wednesday.
Lyon must deal with the unavailability of highly rated right-back Malo Gusto, who is nursing a hamstring injury since February 9, 2023.
Given the current form of both teams, a draw is the likely result in this match in regulation time.
