The LYN vs STE match preview –
Two teams who are fighting to contest for a top-four place in Ligue 1 face-off as Olympique Lyon takes on AS St. Etienne on Thursday.
Olympique Lyon are the fourth-placed team in the league. Only two points shy of clinching the second spot, the French team has done well this season. They are unbeaten in the last six games, and this is the kind of momentum they needed to remain relevant enough in the top-four. The average age of the team is still relatively young, and if they get enough time playing together, Olympique Lyon can easily contest with PSG for the title in the coming years.
Meanwhile, St. Etienne are also on a high. This team has always been hovering near the top-6 spot in the French Ligue 1. But, St. Etienne is still one or two players short of becoming an elite. The side has always suffered in terms of consistency, and that can only be solved by having superstars in your lineup. Regardless, the aim for the team is to finish in the top four and they will see if it can be a reality when they face their upcoming opponents.
