The reason I am posting this is because I have achieved incredible results with Lyon in over 3 seasons, after trying unsuccessfully different tactics I found here. I am currently using the "12.2 Tweak" tactic by Mr Hough which was a FM12 tactic, but it works perfectly for me with the 13.2.2 patch. I have obviously played NO part in the creation of this tactic and I am only sharing my results so you might try to do the same if you are struggling in your current game.
1st season : (started using the tactic after 19 games)
40 played, 28 wins - 4 draws - 8 losses (87 goals - 36 conceded)
I won : French League 1 - French Community Shield (+ semi-final defeat 4-5 in Europa League against future winners Manchester City)
2nd season :
59 played, 43 wins - 8 draws - 8 losses (127 goals - 44 conceded)
I won : French League 1 - French Community Shield - Champion's League (on pens 1-1 against City)
3rd season :
62 played, 50 wins - 5 draws - 7 losses (163 goals - 52 conceded)
I won : French League 1 - French Community Shield - European supercup - World championship - French Cup
(+ semi-final defeat 2-1 against future winners Real Madrid)
So far this 4th season :
9 played, 9 wins - 0 draws - 0 losses (31 goals - 2 conceded)
I won : French Community Shield
GLOBAL RECAP !
170 played, 130 wins - 17 draws - 23 losses (408 goals - 134 conceded) 76,4% wins
11 trophies (3 french League 1 in 3 seasons + 1 CL - and 2 semi-finals).
I would like to mention that at least half my defeats were minor games for which I played reserve players and teenagers, not to mention games lost at PSG, Barcelona, Madrid or City...
I have uploaded screenshots so you can have a look at my current run of form, a few big wins, and individual stats for Destro (62 goals in 50 games last season, 15 goals in 9 games so far this season...).
Globally, it allows you to have a very good possession, good passing rate, and a lot of shoots compared to the opponent. Of course, with this patch a lot of them come from distance but it doesn't really matter as you still score a lot... Plenty of goals on corners, especially with Destro.

If you try it, let me know how it works for you !
