      Tip Reasoning

      After winning their first two games in Champions League Group H, a home game against Lyon should be the perfect opportunity for Zenit to secure their place at the top of the table. They play an enjoyable brand of football and they proved that by beating Valencia 3-2 away from home. This is a side that has genuine quality and they are an extremely tough team to beat in Russia.

      Meanwhile, Lyon have been enduring a mediocre spell of form throughout 2015-16. They’re not quite able to break out, either in French Ligue 1, or in this competition. They had to battle hard for a draw away in Belgium against Gent and they weren’t able to shut Valencia out at home in their last game.

      They’ve perhaps been a little unfortunate with the run of games. Still, this is a tough away game and if they manage a return of just one point from the first three games, they won’t find themselves with particularly good prospects of qualifying for the knockout stages.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Lyon’s form

      There’s just nothing convincing about the way that Lyon is playing right now. They’ll scrap and they’ll dig in for a bit, but we can’t see them holding Zenit out for 90 minutes in this match-up.

      2. Odds too good to resist

      Zenit’s home record speaks for itself, getting the chance to have them to win at 10/11 – close to even odds – is far too good to ignore.

      3. Important game for Zenit

      They’re not typically a strong team outside of Russia, which is where they’ve come unstuck in European competition’s before. They’ve also been prone to poor patches of form. We think winning this game is actually a pretty important point in the season for Zenit.
