Preview: Lyon vs. Real Sociedad

Sports Mole looks ahead to the Champions League first-leg qualifier between Lyon and Real Sociedad.

Lyon and Real Sociedad begin their fight for a place in the Champions League group stages tonight, as a two-legged qualifier gets underway at the Stade Gerland.

Remi Garde's side go into the match full of confidence after an impressive start to Ligue 1 season, which has seen Lyon score seven goals to take maximum points from their first two games.

The hosts are likely to stick with Alexandre Lacazette in attack, with Clement Grenier and Yoann Gourcuff providing support in advanced midfield positions.

Sociedad also earned a win in their La Liga opener last weekend, with Carlos Vela starring in a 2-0 home win over Getafe.

French winger Antoine Griezmann was rested for that match by Sociedad and is bidding for a recall this evening against his boyhood club.

Summer signing Esteban Granero was not registered in time to make his debut in the crunch clash, while Swiss stiker Haris Seferovic is hoping to continue in a lone front role.

Possible lineups

Lyon: Lopes, Miguel Lopez, Bisevac, Fofana, Umititi, Gonalons, Malbranque, Gourcuff, Grenier, Lacazette, Benzia

Sociedad: Bravo, C.Martínez, Ansotegi, I.Martinez, De la Bella, Elustondo, Pardo, Zurutuza, Vela, Seferovic, Griezmann

Sports Mole says: 2-2
