Lyon may have opened their European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool 4 campaign with a try-scoring bonus point victory against London Welsh, but they will have to find a performance away from home on Friday, that they have not come remotely close to producing in the French Top 14 tournament this season.

The French club have played five games on the road in France, and been beaten in each fixture, picking up just a single losing bonus point along the way. Although they will have home advantage at Murrayfield on Friday, Edinburgh have undoubtedly produced their best two results of the season, by some considerable distance, away from their home stadium.

In Round 1 of the Guinness PRO12 tournament, the Scots pulled off a stunning 1-point victory at Thomond Park against Munster. A venue from which very few sides emerge with any credit. While last weekend they travelled to Bordeaux to play the club with the best home record in the Top 14 competition. A late penalty allowed them to take Bordeaux's unbeaten home record, and take the initiative in the Pool. A win for the Scottish side on Friday will see them top the Pool going into the back to back fixtures with the winless Premiership side, London Welsh, and putting them very much in the driving position for top spot and a place in the last eight.
