The French side have lost five times in their domestic league, despite a lack of competition, and look the weakest of the group winners.

Despite losing Falcao and James Rodriguez, they have experienced names like Jeremie Toulalan and Joao Moutinho in the side. They are also packed with exciting young talent like Layvin Kurzawa and Geoffrey Kondogbia.
