I have always had a soft spot for Olympique Lyon, as they’re probably my favorite team in France. Taking on a team in Ligue 1 is always a fun time, and Olympique Lyon have a pretty fun team with some big names like Tolisso and Lacazette for you to manage.
Union Berlin has an amazing story behind them, with them rising from the lower leagues of German football over the last several years.
