Madrid to play Lyon in friendly

Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed that the French club will play Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly.

The Gones owner has revealed that the game will take place on July 24 at the team’s Stade Gerland stadium.

It will be the first time the two teams have met since the 2011/12 Champions League group stage, when Los Blancos defeated the Ligue 1 side 4-0 and 2-0 respectively.

The match will also see Karim Benzema go back to his old club.
