Lyon – RB Leipzig, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LYON - LEIPZIG
Lyon can definitely be called an unpredictable team, even for people who follow them very closely. There are quite a few teams that are fickle. Currently, this is not surprising with Garcia. However, the kids had a very difficult start to the season. Ever since Rudy Garcia came, he’s been trying to impose a certain style of play that will take time. The truth is that Lyon relies too much on individuals and some players are too important for the team. Lyon have talent but lack of experience.
Leipzig are a very interesting team. Undoubtedly, their season so far goes perfectly – almost qualified in the semifinals in the UCL and in second place in the Bundesliga. The better news here is they are in great shape during some of the most difficult periods for the teams, namely December. Werner is the guy who scores the goals and the main one to rely on in the front positions.
Expert view : Lyon need a victory as it is not clear whether Benfica will defeat Zenit. Leipzig would actually be pleased with the draw. As the home side will come out more attacking and try to push the opponent in the beginning, we expect to see dynamic football. Leipzig has many game models, but definitely counter-attacks are one of their strengths. Prediction – BTTS at 1.54.
5 consecutive Leipzig matches finish with BTTS
