Lyon will come up against some familiar faces this summer after confirming a friendly against New York Red Bulls.
Les Gones will take on the Major League Soccer side on July 16 at the Red Bull Arena, the venue for their season-opening Trophee des Champions win over Montpellier last summer.
Brazilian midfielder Juninho heads up a trio of Lyon favourites in New York, having won seven league title in eight years with the club during which he made 344 appearances.
Striker Peguy Luyindula also enjoyed three title-winning seasons with the club while Gerard Houllier, currently global sporting director of Red Bull Soccer, was Lyon's coach from 2005 to 2007.
