Lyon vs Shakhtar Champions League
Excellent start for the French in the UCL groups
A value-balanced duel and experience is announced on the Lyon stadium where hosts and guests hope to get all three points because of such games they can take advantage of in order to get the best place in the UCL group. Lyon and Sahtior will face the Olympique Lyonnais Park from 22:00.
Lyon does not have a great start for the season, but recently it seems like things have begun to work for the French club, which will easily try to go back to the Ligue 1 bout and fight for a European spring qualifying. Bruno Genesio’s team is in fifth place in the French championship, gaining only 14 points in the 8 stages, being just two blocks away from the UCL. After the success in front of Marseille and Dijon, unfortunately the last stage was just one draw against Tătăruşanu, Nantes, score 1-1. The most beautiful moment of this season is the one in the first round of UCL when the French won a fantastic result on Etihad Stadium, score 2-1 in front of Manchester City, being leaders in group F.
Lyon team probable: Lopes – Mendy, Denayer, Marcelo, Rafael – N’Dombele, Tousart – Aouar, Fekir, Traore – Depay
The Sahtior remains a force in European football, which unfortunately has only a competition in which to fight bands of the same value and this is the UCL. The Portuguese team led by Portuguese Fonseca debuted as it could not have done better in this season start, and after 10 stages it managed to score the first position with 27 points, winning 9 matches and losing only one. Just in the last stage came a very strong success on the arena in Lviv, Karpaty ticking a humiliating failure against Marlos & Co, 6-1 being the score in favor of Sahtior in this trip. This is the difference between the champion of Ukraine and the rest of the bands, but the game tonight could be a really serious test for this one that did not look good in the first match. Sahtior drew home against Hoffe, score 2-2, and here’s how he misses an opportunity to get the three points.
Sahtior probable team: Pyatov – Butko, Ordets, Rakitsky, Ismaily – Stepanenko, Patrick – Marlos, Taison, Bolbat – Moraes

Betting houses accredit the French team as a clear favorite to win, and the Ukrainians receive no chance for even one point this evening, but the game of Fonseca’s Brazilians can shine at any moment if they are left to play, which Bruno Genesio will prepare you with a special attention. Defense on Etihad Stadium will have to rise to the same level, and end-to-end efficiency will have the same odds. I will therefore bet on a victory of the Lyoners who still present themselves in a great form both physically and of the game played lately.
