Olympique Lyonnais and AS Saint-Etienne lock horns in what promises to be one of the most thrilling games of the 2015-16 Ligue seasons so far.

Both teams are level on points at the end of gameweek 12 of the 2015-16 Ligue 1 season with just goal difference keeping Lyon above their upcoming hosts. Les Gones have returned to winning ways sooner rather than later after a slow start to the season and are currently second in the table, behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain. They have 22 points to show for their performances this season and have collected maximum points from 6 of their games while drawing 4 and losing 2 matches in the process.

The hosts are coming in this game on the back of a good run of form with 3 wins in their last 5 games and the confidence level among players is pretty high ahead of the weekend game. Les Gones would be looking for nothing but a victory against their bitter rivals. First, the game is being played at their home ground, Stade de Gerland, where Lyon enjoy a great record and teams have found it really tough to get away from this stadium with a point over the years. Secondly, this game is a potential six pointers between the two sides and the team winning this game will move further ahead of the other making this encounter even more thrilling.

Saint-Etienne on the other hand are a team in form and they would be looking to get something out of the game at least if not three points. The visitors are currently 4th in the league standings with 22 points. They have won 7 games this season, one more than Lyon but their 4 defeats in 12 games have resulted in Les Verts sitting outside the podium for now.

ASSE would be looking towards the likes of Loic Perrin and Robert Beric for inspiration and the duo need to step up their game in front of the goal if Saint-Etienne are to give Lyon a hard time at the weekend. Both players have three goals each to their name in Ligue this season and would be looking to add to their tally when Saint-Etienne travel to Stade de Gerland to take on one of the most successful French club out there.
