Lyon vs Benfica Betting Tips

Lyon is doing unexpectedly bad this season, and after finishing the previous term of the French Ligue 1 in the 3rd place they are now in the 13th spot. In their group stage campaign, they recorded mixed results so far. At first, they were held to a draw by Zenit at home in their opener despite being seen as the heavy favourites. In the next round, they surprisingly beat RB Leipzig in an away clash 0-2, and in the previous round, they lost to their upcoming rival away from home 2-1. Even though their recent scoring form isn't the best one, they netted 5 and conceded 3 goals in their last 5 clashes, I expect them to score some because of the home-ground advantage.

Unlike their upcoming opponent, Benfica is doing great recently. In their domestic league, they are at the very top of the table after 8 wins and just 1 loss. They are showing great form in their latest 5 clashes across all competitions, they were victorious 4 times and lost once. In those 5 games, we saw them net 12 goals while allowing 5, so it's easy to expect them to score some more this time. Although they are having a bit of a hard time in the Group G, where they were defeated in the first two rounds by RB Leipzig and Zenit, and then recorded their first victory against Lyon in the previous round.

Lyon Latest Team News

The home team hasn't reported any injured or suspended players, so their manager Rudi Garcia shouldn't have a hard time picking his starting eleven. Moussa Dembélé will be the player watch on their sides, as he scored 7 goals since the beginning of this season.

Benfica Latest Team News

On the other hand, the visiting team's manager Bruno Lage will have to deal with two unavailable players for this clash, Raúl de Tomás and Rafa Silva are both injured. On their side, you should keep an eye for their great striker Pizzi who netted 6 goals and made 2 assists this season.

Lyon vs Benfica Correct Score Prediction

These two sides have met on 3 occasions in recent years, and Lyon was better twice while Benfica won once. That victory for Benfica was in their most recent affair in the previous round of the group stage. Since the hosts suffered a significant dip in form, and are struggling even in their domestic league, I can't see them making much of an impact in this clash. Moreover, the hosts won just 3 of their last 10 home matches, while the visitors were triumphant in 9 out of the last 10 away clashes, they even kept a clean sheet in 6 of those games. After looking into all those facts, it all points out that we will see another away victory of Benfica.
