Edinburgh have reserved some of their best form of the season for the European Rugby Challenge Cup, and they head Pool 4 with a 100% winning record. The only other team with four wins out of four in the tournament being Gloucester in Pool 5.

However, the Scottish side have failed to secure a single bonus-point from their four wins, and as a result are still uncertain of qualification for the knockout stages this season, despite the indifferent form of their main challengers from France, Bordeaux-Begles, and the club they face at the Matmut Stadium on Saturday, Lyon.

When the teams played at Murrayfield earlier in the season, the Scots won by 25-17, and having won at Bordeaux on their previous visit to France in Pool 4, they will travel with plenty of confidence. Especially as they go into the fixture on the back of successive PRO12 victories against Glasgow Warriors and Connacht. Lyon trail their visitors by six points, so know that nothing less than a win will retain their interest in this season’s Challenge Cup. However, they are in 12th position in the Top 14 table, and with the threat of a relegation battle ahead of them, it will be no surprise to see key players rested from the French Club’s match day squad on Saturday.
