Stade de Gerland (Lyon) will be hosting on 20 August 2013, an UEFA Champions League match between Lyon and Real Sociedad. The match referee  will be Milorard Mazic (Serbie).
After a series of friendly matches, it is clear that coach Garde made a good team and succeded to to let the team focus on denying its opponents a chance to score. This is can be seen after Lyon could deny Real Madrid victory less than one month ago. It, then, won the next four games while conceding a single goal. Lyon needs to keep going with this amazing defensive performance in the double legged round against the Spanish team and it has to doits best to win the opening game.
Real Sociedad appeared as one of the best performances in the last season by finishing among the top Spanish teams and booking a place for the Champions League qualifiers. The team is really dangerous at home, but less effective on the road. Coach Arrasate will need to refrain from using three strikers and he has plenty of options up front with players like: Agirretxe, Ifran, Griezmann or Vela in the lineup. Though Agirretxe and Ifran are still struggling with injuries.
