Olympique Lyonnais (OL) faces a pivotal moment as they gear up to clash with Valenciennes in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France tomorrow evening. With aspirations of securing a coveted spot in Europe hinging on a potential final victory, the fate of Rayan Cherki, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder, remains uncertain after sustaining a calf injury.

Following a challenging encounter against Reims on Saturday that ended in a 1-1 draw, OL’s attention now shifts to the Coupe de France, where they hope to secure a decisive win against Valenciennes.

However, Cherki’s availability for the upcoming match hangs in the balance after he suffered a calf injury last Thursday, casting doubt on his participation.

Cherki, who was substituted at half-time during the Reims fixture, is set to undergo a fitness test on Monday to determine his suitability for selection in tomorrow’s crucial encounter.

According to reports from the esteemed sports publication L’Équipe, there is a prevailing sense of optimism surrounding Cherki’s potential availability, providing a glimmer of hope for OL ahead of the semi-final showdown.

Meanwhile, OL’s squad members who featured in Saturday’s match have been afforded a period of rest and recuperation, utilizing Sunday to undergo necessary treatment and recharge their batteries in preparation for the upcoming battle against Valenciennes.

The semi-final clash represents a significant opportunity for OL to assert their dominance and edge closer to securing a coveted place in European competition.

As the anticipation builds and the stakes soar, OL’s decision regarding Cherki’s involvement will undoubtedly shape the outcome of tomorrow’s encounter.

With the prospect of European qualification hanging in the balance, OL remains focused on overcoming Valenciennes and advancing one step closer to their ultimate goal in the Coupe de France.
