Olympique Lyonnais will be playing against Machester City in a UEFA Champions League Group F match on November 27.

Currently, City top the League table with nine points and Lyon stands on second with three points.

Lyon head coach, Bruno Genesio said his team is looking forward to clinching victory in the upcoming match against City mentioning that once his team was able to put them in trouble and win the game and they will try to repeat the same.

"The advice is to play the game with anything in the back of their heads (to use their brains). We are facing a team superior to us on paper, but as you saw in the first meeting, we were able to put them in trouble and to win against them. We will try to repeat what we did well in the first game," he said.

Lyon coach also talked about the last games saying that the team performance was not up to the mark.

"If we look at their last games we should be worried. But I think the only way to put them in trouble is to play our game. If we only try to defend against these kind of teams, we will concede one great goal and we will lose it."

This match is a must win for Lyon so they can earn crucial and very important three points to be in contention to qualify for the knockout stages.
