Lyon star Sidney Govou insists that the pressure is all on Liverpool tonight.
Defeat at home to the Group E leaders would leave the Merseysiders facing a scrap to make it into the knockout stages.
France striker Govou, now age 30, said that it is not a test for Lyon and that it is just the continuation of the Champions League.
Govou however said that it is a massive game for Liverpool and that it is more important as a game for Liverpool than it is for Lyon.
Govou also said that Liverpool are below where they were expected to be at the start of the season and said that a draw would be a good result for Lyon.
Govou however said that Liverpool are the group favourites even if they have not had the start to the season they wanted.
He also said that Liverpool need the points to rejoin the race for qualification.
