Lyon is far from what it was at the beginning of the century. Even in their championship, the Weavers are constantly slipping, taking a modest 10th place. In the last round of their championship, Lyon got one point. In the away game, the team drew with Strasbourg (1:1).
In the squad of the French club, it is worth noting Karl Toko Ekambi. The Cameroonian has already scored eight league goals, adding six more in the Europa League.
