Olympique Lyon will head into their own stadium knowing anything better than a defeat will be enough to seal qualification to the next stage of Europa League.
The French club are unbeaten so far with two wins and two draws and are level on points with Atalanta. However, superior goal difference means Atalanta are the group’s leaders at the moment.
Meanwhile, Apollon haven’t endured a torrid European campaign themselves as they have only lost once in four games. The away side’s only defeat came against Atalanta in Italy.
Lyon are on form this season with 23 goals in last 8 games and have tasted defeat just once so far.
They started their Europa League campaign with back-to-back draws against Atalanta and Apollon. But, they duly recovered with two wins over Everton in subsequent fixtures.
The Les Gones currently stand 3rd in the Ligue 1 with the help of a blistering goalscoring form of newcomer Mariano Diaz and Nabil Fekir. The duo share twenty goals between them this season, more than half of Lyon’s goals.
Lyon entered the semi-finals of the tournament last season before eventually losing 5-4 to Ajax on aggregate. They will look to build on from their previous campaign for their first European trophy since Intertoto Cup in 1997.
Both sides have no major injury concerns and can be expected to line up a fully strengthened team. Lyon will possibly start with Bertrand Traore in the starting lineup, after coach Bruno Genesio named him on bench in the weekend.
