Lyon, on the other hand, lost 3-0 to Felice Mazzu's Anderlecht in their most recent friendly fixture. Goals from veteran Israeli attacker Lior Refaelov, Italian striker Sebastiano Esposito and forward Francis Amuzu secured the win for Anderlecht.

Feyenoord vs Lyon Head-to-Head and Key Numbers

Feyenoord vs Lyon Prediction

Feyenoord finished third last season in the Eredivisie, 12 points behind league leaders Ajax. Two of their best performers last season, midfielder Guus Til and forward Luis Sinisterra, have both left the club this summer, with Til joining PSV Eindhoven on a permanent deal and Sinisterra moving to Leeds United.

They have acquired winger Javairo Dilrosun and Brazilian striker Danilo to reinforce their attack, while much will be expected from Turkey international Orkun Kokcu, whose performances last season have seen him linked with clubs like Arsenal and Leicester City.

Lyon, on the other hand, finished eighth last season in Ligue 1. Lyon were frustratingly inconsistent last season and have sought to add experience to their squad. Academy graduates Alexandre Lacazette and Corentin Tolisso have both returned to the club after spells with Arsenal and Bayern Munich respectively.

After left-back Tyrell Malacia decided to turn down Lyon to join Manchester United, the French giants have secured the services of Argentine left-back Nicolas Tagliafico from Ajax. It will be interesting to see what the club does with players like Lucas Paqueta and Houssem Aouar, amid interest from clubs across Europe.

A close game is on the cards, with a draw the likely outcome.
