LYON NEWS

Lyon is currently 7th on Ligue 1 table with 12 points after seven games. In Europa League first round match, they played only 1:1 against Apollon on Cyprus. They conceded a goal in the last moments of the game, and that fact might cost them a place in the knockout phase of the competition. Because of that, Lyon will have to win the match against Atalanta, or their chances to finish in the top two in the group will be slim.
