Paris: Lyon coach Claude Puel is considering resting his key players for Friday's French league match against Nancy because he wants to keep them fresh for next week's Champions League game against Real Madrid.
Although Lyon is fighting for the French title, Puel said his players risk burning out as the seven-time former champions face a busy schedule with seven matches over the next month.
"I must admit that I'm still asking myself that question. I have several options and I haven't decided yet," Puel said. "If I do have to (make changes) it will be up front because it's always in that sector that you need the maximum freshness."
