Groupama Stadium will host tomorrow’s football match between Lyon and Juventus. Olympique Lyon gained a 2-2 draw against Leipzig. As you may have already known, they are undefeated in the last eight home matches of the elite competition.
However, Lyon are not considered to make a home advantage and gain a victory against Juve as their star Memphis Depay is sidelined due to his injury.
His absence was compared to Juve’s playing without Ronaldo. The Portugal superstar recently has been netting goals for fun in the SA this term. Accordingly, he will probably prove a handful for Lyon’s defenders. As Juventus are among the main favorites to win the CL trophy, fans believe that Sarri’s troops will prove their worth on the pitch in Wednesday’s clash.
A balanced UCL group stage (with two wins, two draws, and two losses) was enough to stop Lyon’s progress. Lyon are unbeaten in their eight UEFA Champions League home matches (one win and seven draws).
Three of Juve’s five wins each witnessed the Old Lady netting exactly two goals beyond the hour mark.
Juve’s previous four competitive away matches have seen both teams scored an average of 2.25 goals (either way) beyond the hour mark. On the other hand, The visitors’ last three UCL visits to French opposition have all witnessed them escape with a clean sheet (two wins and one draw).
Players to watch
Olympique Lyon: Houssem Aouar has scored once beyond the 80th minute in Lyon’s last three competitive wins.
Juventus: Juventus’ scorer in each of their last eight away matches, and scorer of a winner in three of them, Cristiano Ronaldo has netted a goal between the 61st minute and full-time in three of Juve’s last four away matches.
