The Ospreys will be looking to get the win they need to secure a home quarter-final when the welcome Lyon to the Liberty Stadium this Sunday (3.00pm KO) in Round 5 of the Challenge Cup.
With the Ospreys leading the way in Pool 2 and boasting a perfect record of 20 points from four straight bonus point wins, they know that a win of any kind, with or without four tries, will guarantee the team a home quarter-final in the spring.
The two sides last met back at Matmut Stadium back in October when a Keelan Giles hat-trick and a late try from Sam Parry saw the Ospreys home to a 31-13 win, their first in France since 2008.
