Manchester City vs Lyon Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Wednesday, Manchester City will host Lyon in what looks to be an exciting game full of chances, goals, and most importantly betting opportunities.
Manchester City have been as dominant as the season before. Although their game is giving the results, it's arguably not as beautiful to the eye. They still remain undefeated in the Premier League and have just one draw against Wolves. In the season behind us, they won the domestic league with a nineteen-point advantage while also managing to break a league record for winning 100 points. Their Champions League campaign was ended by their rivals, Liverpool, with a 5-1 aggregate at the quarter-final. They have been amazing at home in the group campaign last year as they have won all three matches in front of their fans. The away matches are where they lack composure as they have won only one of the previous five in Europe while losing the remaining four. City’s home record against French clubs is two wins and a draw.
Lyon failed to make it past the group stages in their last Champions League competition. Two seasons ago, when they competed in Europe, they won just two of the six games played, which saw them finish the group at the third place. Lyon were UEFA Champions League semi-finalists in 2010 and are in the group stage for the 15th time. Their fans have set the high expectations for them, and anything else than the progression past the group stage would be a disappointment.
The two teams have never faced each other before and it will be interesting to see how this one unfolds. Both sides play a heavily attack-oriented style of football so there should be no shortage of goals. One thing is certain, both sides will give it their best to get a win at the start of their 2018/2019 European campaigns.
Manchester City have several missing players for the match against Lyon. Eliaquim Mangala, Kevin De Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are injured and they will not play on the match. Danilo, Benjamin Mendy and Sergio Agüero are not fully fit and they are doubtful for the match. All other players are available to play and all of them are highly motivated to pick up all three points from the opening game.
On the other side Lyon don't have many missing players for this game. Amine Gouiri is injured and he is only one player who will not play on Wednesday night in Manchester. Marçal is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match.
Possible starting lineups
Manchester City: Ederson; Delph, Laporte, Kompany, Walker; Silva, Fernandinho, Silva; Sane, Jesus, Sterling
Lyon: Lopes; Rafael, Marcelo, Denayer, Mendy; Tousart, NDombele; Traore, Fekir, Aouar; Depay
