The autumn group stage of Lyon also overcame quite a problem, only in the last round managed to make a ticket to the playoffs. In League 1, the Rudi Garcia team is not doing well. Les Gones are in seventh place, the gap to qualify for the Champions League zone is seven points, and to the second place, which gives a direct ticket – as much as 15 points.
So it’s quite possible that we won’t see the main Euro tournament Lyon next season. Nevertheless, in the 1/8 round the outsiders have already beaten the favourites, as it was, for example, in the match between Atletico and Liverpool.
Possible starting lineup: Lopes; Marcal, Marcelo, Denayer; Kone, Bruno, Tousart, Terrier, Dubois; Dembele, Ekambi
Juventus made it much easier to secure himself a trip to the playoffs, and many people call the Sarri team almost the main favourite of the current draw. However, as in the past few years. Objectively, the Turin team got the easiest opponent at this stage, but underestimation can play a bad joke with bianconeri. Juventus fans have already witnessed this season how their team were losing points against outsiders in the league away games.
Italians are also doing well. All the leaders are in line, Gonzalo Higuain managed to recover to the match against Lyon, and there were no new entrants to the infirmary.
Possible starting lineup: Szczesny; Alex Sandro, Rugani, de Ligt, Danilo; Matuidi, Bentancur, Rabiot; Ronaldo, Higuain, Dybala
Lyon vs Juventus Prediction
It’s hard to imagine a scenario where the French would leave Juventus overboard the tournament. And it’s not just about the status of the teams, but also in their current form, because the Turin players have it much better even if they take domestic championships. The trump that Lyon can take advantage of is a factor of the home field and a rather fierce Serie A fight of the Bianconeri. In addition, there is a strong possibility that Juventus will have to play the return leg without spectators due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
- Our prediction: Juventus will win.
