Remi Garde believes that Lyon's preparations are going well ahead of the new season.

Lyon coach Remi Garde has revealed that he is pleased with his side's team spirit so far as they arrived in the United States for a friendly.

The Ligue 1 side face the New York Red Bulls on Tuesday following last week's 0-0 draw with MKS Pogon, and Garde is predicting a tough encounter.

"The spirit in the squad has been good since the start of pre-season training," Ligue1.com quotes Garde as saying. "On Tuesday we will play our second friendly match and it will be very hard.

"The New York Red Bulls will be a very tough opponent, a side I think are good enough to play in Ligue 1, without necessarily fighting for the title. It will be a solid match, a very good test for us."

Lyon finished third in last season's Ligue 1.
