Municipal De Gerland, Lyon (France) will be hosting on 30 July 2013, an UEFA Champions League match between Lyon and Grasshopper Zurich. The match referee will be Göçek Hüseyin (Turquie).
Olympique Lyon team is one of the best and succesfull teams in France over the last decade or so. Before the 2000 season, Lyon was not a big thing, but starting from 2001 it went on a remarkable run that made it win an amazing 7 titles in a row.  Nevertheless, since 2008 it has not managed to regain a title and the odds look slim indeed now with PSG and Monaco striking gold with owners. Lyon is a very experienced team in Europe with 192 games: it has 99 wins, 38 draws and 55 losses. In Champions League, Lyon is one of the busiest teams with 114 games: 55 wins, 26 draws and 33 losses. The French league has not started yet, so straight into it for Olympique Lyon.
Grasshoppers of Zurich isone of the most successful teams in the country with 27 league titles.  Leagues have been a bit thin on the ground of late though, it has not won since 2003. Last season was a case of, nearly but not quite, as it lost to eternal rivals Basel by a mere three points, chasing them for almost the entire season.  Playing matches at local rivals FC Zurich while its own ground is constructed hardly helps. Grasshoppers have already played three games in the league: 2 wins and  1 draw.

Possible line-ups:
-Lyon: A. Lopes; M. Lopes, B. Koné, M. Bisevac, M. Dabo; M. Gonalons, G. Fofana, Y. Gourcuff, C. Grenier; L. Lopez, A. Lacazette.
-Grasshopper Zurich: R. Bürki; S. Grichting, D. Pavlovic, M. Lang, M. Vilotic; S. Gashi, V. Salatic, A. Abrashi, T. Nzuzi; I. Hajrovic, N. Ben Khalifa.
