Stade de Gerland: Home of Lyon(credit: Wikipedia
Lyon coach Claude Puel has called for consistency from his side as they head into the final few months of the Ligue 1 campaign.
Lyon are currently fourth in the French standings and go into tonight’s clash with Lorient just one point behind current leaders Lille.
And with the top half of the table so congested, Puel knows that the team that shows the most consistency is likely to walk away with the title.
He said: “The most important thing is going to be to stay in range and keep up the spirit. To do so, consistency is key. There can be no question of dropping points.
“I think some of the teams vying for the title will suffer a drop as Bordeaux did last season. This will leave a scrap, but there are five or six clubs in the fight.”
Lyon head into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Auxerre, while Lorient’s most recent league outing ended in a goalless draw with Montpellier.
