Star striker Alexandre Lacazette starts as Lyon look to turn the Europa League semi-final in France, Ajax bring in Viergever.

Lyon host Ajax in the Europa League semi-final this evening, with both sides vying for a place in the final in Stockholm. 

The French side have a 4-1 deficit to overturn from the first leg in Amsterdam, and Lacazette returns from injury to lead the line.

Fekir will play just behind Lacazette, with Gonalons and Tolisso completing the midfield.

Keep an eye out for diminutive winger Mathieu Valbuena, who is always a tricky customer for the opposing full-back.

Lyon XI: Lopes; Rafael, N'Koulou, Diakhaby, Morel; Gonalons, Tolisso; Cornet, Fekir, Valbuena; Lacazette.

Ajax: team news

Once again, it is a young team that will take to the field for the Dutch giants. 

Their only change sees Viergever return at left-back in place of Riedewald. 

Ajax XI: Onana; Veltman, Sánchez, De Ligt, Viergever; Klaassen, Shone, Ziyech; Traoré, Dolberg, Younes.
