OL enjoy playing against sides promoted to Ligue 1 and have registered a very positive record over the past ten years...

Since 1997-98, Les Lyonnais have played 56 Ligue 1 matches against promoted sides. The record? 38 wins, 11 draws and just 7 losses. Including six wins from six in the 2005-06 season. Toulouse has been OL's most frequent opponent over the last ten years in this domaine with six meetings for three wins and three draws.

As for Sedan, Saturday night will be the third time: 1 win and 1 loss so far, both 2-0.

Of the other teams in this study, Le Mans have been the perfect victims with four Lyon wins from four and a goal difference of 14 - 2!

Never in the past ten years has a promoted side beaten Lyon home and away in the same season. Sochaux and Montpellier have the best records to date with a win and a draw in 2001-02
