      Lyon vs Gent Predictions

      Lyon are the clear favourites to win but have so far been very disappointing in this competition. Just 1 point from their opening 4 games leaves them with the slimmest of chances of progress and this game is an absolute must-win for them. A draw would mean they would be knocked out and would mean that most likely they would finish bottom of the group.

      Gent have been better than many people expected and have been competitive in all of their matches so far. A 1-0 win at home to Valencia last time out has given them hope and they drew 1-1 at home to Lyon on matchday one. Their two defeats where both by just a single goal so this should also be a close game.

      If they have any ambitions of progressing into the last 16, then they most likely are going to need to win this game as any other result would leave them relying on Valencia slipping up in Russia to stay in the competition. Therefore both sides should be quite positive here and we should see goals.

      Gent have scored in all 4 of their group games so far while Lyon have the worst defensive record in the group, conceding in all their matches and losing both their home games so far. Lyon also conceded 3 at Nice in Ligue 1 on Friday, therefore there is plenty of reason to think that an away goal is likely in this one.

      However it will be a big ask for Gent to keep things quiet at the other end. Lyon will be desperate for a result as they aren’t as bad as 1 point from 4 games in a fairly weak group might suggest. We should see an improved showing from them here and with both teams gunning for the win, we should see both teams score, which you can back at 8/11.

      Gent have lost both their away games 2-1 so far and should certainly be able to provide Lyon with a real test but a combination of lack of top-level experience and a lack of genuine quality could see them again fall a little short in what is an important match for both sides.

      At 7/1 you can back Lyon to win 2-1 and finally get their first win in this year’s Champions League.
