Juventus has big ambitions in the Champions League this season and wants to win the title. Lyon should not be a hurdle, but the first leg in France could be very interesting.
Under coach Rudi Garcia, Lyon has problems this season and is only seventh in French Ligue 1.
Third place is “only” seven points away, but the team actually wanted to play for second place this season, to be number 1 behind industry leader PSG. Everyday life in the league is relatively dreary, so the Champions League may be a welcome change.
At the weekend Lyon won 2-0 in Metz, previously they played 1-1 at home against Strasbourg. The previous cup win over Marseille was the highlight of the past few weeks and was proof that the team is capable of performing well in individual games. Before the duel Lyon vs. Juventus is our forecast that Juventus will win the game.
The reasons are complex. The long-term failures of Memphis Depay and Jeff Reine-Adelaide in particular are a major weakening for the French. Both are very important in offensive play, both cannot be replaced adequately. Players like Terrier, Cornet or Traore lack consistency. You can all play good games, but you can also make hair-raising decisions.
A solid encouragement for Lyon are the solid appearances in the group phase. At home they remained unbeaten against Zenit as well as against RB Leipzig and SL Benfica, qualified second behind the club from the Bundesliga. And last season, OL showed Manchester City how uncomfortable this club can be. More tips about the Champions League can be found on our website!
In general, Lyon has to defend very attentively, so players like Ronaldo or Dybala are not allowed to open spaces. Only then is there a chance of a good result. Rudi Garcia has to cope with some failures in terms of personnel. In addition to the attacking players that have already been mentioned, Solet, Koné and Dubois are also missing on the defensive. Tousart was not in the squad at the weekend, but could again be an issue for the bank.
Maurizio Sarri should not only start the attack on the “Henkelpott” at Juventus, they also expected a lot in terms of football. The reality is different.
Juventus is at the top of Serie A, but does not shine through champagne football, nor has the “old lady” set itself apart from the competition. Could a tough title fight, where you have to be very vigilant, but maybe be a bonus for attention in the Champions League?
Before the game Lyon vs. In any case, Juventus have very good odds for an away win. And this is no accident. Juventus won two of the three away games in the group stage and played 2-2 in Madrid at Atletico. Only in the league does the team wobble abroad at times and has not won five games.
A big plus for Juventus is the strong offensive. Peat festivals are few and far between, but the “Vecchia Signora” almost always hits. Only in the 0-0 in the league against Florence at the beginning of the season did Juventus not hit.
The knowledge and self-confidence that you can always score a goal are extremely important for the team, especially because an away goal in the Champions League can be of elementary importance.
Also at the weekend in the 2-1 at the bottom of the SPAL showed what Juventus often deals with this season. The team switches to management mode too quickly and has problems playing consistently at a high level for 90 minutes. Ramsey and Ronaldo secured the win, but Juventus has to improve in Lyon.
Maurizio Sarri has had some failures. Defender Demiral is not available, the same applies to Douglas Costa. There is also a big question mark behind Pjanic and Higuain. The squad should also be good enough in width to compensate for these losses, and Chiellini recently made his comeback after a long injury.
