Aiming to keep their hopes of a top-five finish in the Ligue 1 table alive with two league games left to play, Lyon will play host to Reims on Saturday.

Les Gones currently sit seventh with sixth-placed Rennes and fifth-placed Lille three and four points better off respectively, meaning Lyon can only focus on winning their remaining two matches and hoping the sides above them fail to do so.

After climbing up to seventh spot in Ligue 1 with three consecutive victories in early April, Lyon saw their hopes of a top-five finish and European qualification take a fresh hit as they suffered a 2-1 defeat in a tough test at home to Marseille, leaving Laurent Blanc's side on 50 points from 32 outings.

They would quickly rebound from that setback, though, firstly returning to winning ways away at Strasbourg before coming out of an eventful contest against Montpellier with a 5-4 victory.

After Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring, Elye Wahi netted four unanswered goals for the visitors, with two coming quickly either side of half time, but two more from Lacazette and a Dejan Lovren goal saw the game tied at four apiece heading into injury time before the forward netted a fourth of his own from the penalty spot deep into injury time to seal three more crucial points for Les Gones.

Following that late turnaround, Lyon then saw their top-five hopes damaged once again in a 2-1 defeat away at Clermont Foot, after going ahead through Lacazette, before they most recently hosted fourth-placed Monaco last weekend and went behind in the opening two minutes, only to draw level through their in-form forward and go ahead thanks to Maxence Caqueret's goal on the hour mark before Rayan Cherki wrapped up a crucial triumph with his side's third 12 minutes from time.

Lyon possible starting lineup:

Lopes; Kumbedi, Diomande, Lukeba, Tagliafico; Caqueret, Tolisso; Barcola, Cherki, Jeffinho; Lacazette

Reims possible starting lineup:

Diouf; Busi, Abdelhamid, Agbadou, Foket; Munetsi, Cajuste; Ito, Flips, Maolida; Balogun
