For a newly promoted club to the Top 14 Orange, who are struggling to find their feet, and to give themselves a chance of retaining their top flight status, Lyon could not have been handed a much tougher pair of fixtures to have to contest on successive weekends. Last week, they had to travel to the Stade Mayol, where they took on the reigning Top 14 and European Champions, as well as current table toppers, Toulon, who duly despatched them by 6-30.

As if that wasn't enough, they now have to prepare to take on Clermont Auvergne this coming Sunday, although they will have the slight advantage of the match being played on their own ground at the Matmut Stadium. Although they are in twelfth position, just a point above the relegation zone, they have won five of their six home fixtures this season in the Top 14, and it is that home form that gives them cause for hope of avoiding the drop.

However, Clermont Auvergne, who are currently in second position, just two points behind Toulon, have a 50% winning record away from home. Three wins and three defeats, which is one of the best records of all Clubs in the top flight this season.

Lyon’s struggles are well-chronicled. They have won only three games in the tournament so far and they have played 12 of them so far. This puts them at the penultimate position with 18 points – only three ahead of Biarritz, who are last. Lyon go into this game with a loss to Toulon and a narrow win against Perpignan. Clermont Auvergne lost to Montpellier on November 26 and they form has been shaky since that encounter, winning against Castres and nudging past Brive 9-6.
