Alexandre Lacazette says that Lyon are ready to face an attacking Grasshopper Zurich side in the return leg of their Champions League qualifier.

Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette is expecting a tough match against Grasshopper Zurich on Tuesday but has insisted that his side will be ready for the return leg of their Champions League qualifying fixture.

The Ligue 1 side possess a 1-0 advantage from the first leg at the Stade de Gerland courtesy of a Milan Bisevac 64th-minute header.

While Lacazette believes that Lyon will be in for a tougher test against Zurich in the second leg, he is adamant that they are up for the challenge.

"It will be harder than the first game because now we are playing against a side that has nothing to lose and will be pushed on by the home fans," Lacazette said at a press conference. "We know what to expect."

"They will attack from the outset to try and score as early as possible. The one-goal advantage changes the tie because that first game gave us a lot of confidence. We know our opponent better now. We have recovered and trained well. We are ready."

The match kicks off at 8pm at the Letzigrund stadium.
