Gent vs. Olympique Lyonnais
19:45 PM, 16 Sep

Gent has failed to beat French opposition in seven attempts in European competition, but Lyon has managed just one victory in seven fixtures away from home in the Champions League.

Lyon are making their first Champions League group-stage appearance since the 2011-12 campaign at Gent on Wednesday and Valbuena wants a positive start against the Belgian champions. Lyon must also press on with their attacking style if they are to shake off a drab domestic draw in the Champions League, Mathieu Valbuena says.
