Since then the team rhythm was broken, and in nine previous matches played by the French, they recorded just one win, three draws and lost their remaining five matches. More so as Lyon scored only two in the last seven games played in all competitions. Lyon is waiting to travel heavy and weekends in Ligue 1, on the site of the former champions of France, Montpellier.
On the other hand, the Portuguese not showing signs of recovery after the beginning of the season less successful. Guimaraes has lost the Super Cup Portugal 0-3 ahead of FC Porto and in the eight official matches has checked three wins, one draw and four defeats. To note that guests come after two consecutive failures which have failed to score any goals.
