Clermont Foot and Lyon are coming into this game at the Groupama Stadium after very contrasting results in the Ligue 1 returning games as Lyon managed to score four goals in a league game once again this season.
Laurent Blanc is in charge of Lyon now and he has got off to a fantastic start. His side defeated Brest with relative ease last time out, scoring three times in the first half of a 4-2 win.
Maxence Caqueret, Rayan Cherki, Tete and another goal from Alexandre Lacazette was the difference for Blanc’s men that day.
Despite the excellent result, they still sit won in eighth and with a lot needing to happen in order to jump into the European spots. In fact, Lyon sit six points behind Monaco in fifth.
As for Clermont, they are down in 10th after losing to Lille at home last time around. Maximiliano Caufriez added to the woes that day, as his red card now means he misses this game through suspension.
