Seven points from three games - with a postponed game out of their hands - means Lyon are looking pretty good after the first few weeks of the season.

That could mean that Auxerre present an unexpected acid test for the side and their title aspirations, as they look to keep pace with Paris Saint-Germain this term.

Predicted Lyon starting XI: Riou; Tagliafico, Lukeba, Mendes, Gusto; Tolisso, Lepenant, Faivre; Dembele, Lacazette, Tete.

PositionAuxerre roster
Goalkeepers Costil, Léon, Laiton, De Percin
Defenders Pereira, Bernard, Jubal, Pellenard, Georgen, Coeff, Boto, Joly, Jeanvier, Bain
Midfielders M'Changama, Camara, Raveloson, Touré, Ruiz-Atil, Sakhi, Silvestre, Autret, Danois, Bouekou, Camara
Forwards Hein, Charbonnier, Dugimont, Sinayoko, Da Costa, Metsoko

The surprise package of the new Ligue 1 season so far, Auxerre have come a long way since an opening loss to Lille.

But this could be their hardest match-up since, and it will likely be a cagey performance as they look to conserve points.

Predicted Auxerre starting XI: Costil; Joly, Jubal, Coeff, Boto; Toure; Perrin, Autret, M'Changama, Hein; Sinayoko.
