Lyon – CSKA Moscow Prediction & Picks (15.03.2018)



Olympique Lyonnais and CSKA Moscow meet at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, in a return leg of this UEFA Europa League phase (8th Finals), after Olympique Lyonnais won in the first leg by (0-1). The CSKA Moscow presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor, so that in this game the home factor may be decisive.

Olympique Lyonnais:

After the away win by (0-1), the home team comes to this second leg with a 1 goal advantage. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a home victory over Caen by (1-0). Olympique Lyonnais won 3 and drew 1 of their last 4 home matches for the UEFA Europa League.

For this competition, they have not lost any of the last 4 home matches. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 23 of the last 25 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. This is a team that usually scores many times first: opened the scoring in 8 of its last 9 matches for the UEFA Europa League, of these 8 came to the break in advantage in 3 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 ‘in 6

The Lyon makes in this exhibition his second consecutive match against his fans, which should be excited about the recent performance of the club, since he suffered only one defeat in the last eight games and now comes from two consecutive victories, not having suffered goals in none of them. Its last confrontation was by the French Championship, in which it occupies the fourth position, in a party in which it was much superior to the Caen, although the victory has been by the minimum marker. In the Europa League, the team enters the field with more tranquility than the Russians of CSKA Moscow, as they won a first leg victory and now a draw will guarantee the continuation in the continental tournament. The 4-3-3 must be the tactical formation adopted for this duel, with highlight for NDombèlé in the center of the field.

CSKA Moscow:

After the defeat at home, the visiting team comes to this second leg with a disvalue of 1 goal and with the difficult task of recovering this negative result as a visitor. This is a team that, oddly enough, was better outside than at home, as in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 6 victories, 5 draws and 4 defeats in his stadium. In their last match, for the Premier League, they got an away win against Terek Grozny by (0-3). In the last 10 away matches CSKA Moscow has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2. The defense has been strong and only suffered goals in 3 of the last 10 matches.

CSKA Moscow enter the field for the second of a series of three exhibitions away from their fans, which has reason to be satisfied with the performance of the club, since it suffered only one defeat in the last eleven games and accumulates three victories in his last four games. The last one was outside the home, against Terek Groznyi, in a match in which he showed a lot of defensive consistency, and his offensive power was also evident. With that result, the team climbed to the third position of the Russian Championship. The defeat suffered in the first leg against Lyon by the Europa League is completely reversible, as it was given the minimum score, but will require an offensive performance better than the team has been showing lately. Goncharenko’s team must go to the field in 3-5-2, with a highlight for Natkho in the central zone.
