Lyon Ready for Tough Battle Against Spurs, Regret Lloris Absence

Lyon will be facing Tottenham Hotspur in their second stages of Europa League fixture this Thursday and ahead of that encounter, the French side’s head coach Remi Garde revealed that they will be in for a tough time against the English side.

Garde admitted that Spurs have been vastly improving in recent times as they’re now among the top ranks that challenging for the top four places in English Premier League, so Andre Villas-Boas men will be a dangerous side to face. Furthermore, the French tactician was rather disappointed though with the absence of former Lyon goal keeper, Hugo Lloris, who won’t be playing for Spurs on the match.
