Lyon will welcome Troyes to Parc Olympique Lyonnais for a matchday seven fixture in Ligue 1 on Wednesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a harrowing 2-1 defeat away to PSG. Mauro Icardi stepped off the bench to score an injury-time winner for the hosts to complete a comeback victory.

Troyes had to settle for a share of the spoils with Montpellier in a 1-1 draw on home turf on Sunday. Yoann Touzghar and Teji Savanier scored in either half to ensure parity was restored at fulltime.

That draw left the newly-promoted side in 13th place, having garnered five points from six games. Lyon are in ninth spot with eight points from six matches.
