Lyon – Zenit : Preview & Prediction
Lyon, after a great start with its two big wins in Monaco (3-0) and ahead of Angers (6-0), is in trouble since the end of August. Indeed, the formation of Sylvinho has just aligned a series of 3 games without a win in Montpellier (1-0), Bordeaux (1-1) and Amiens (2-2). This Champions League match can be a snap for Depay’s partners who remain on 5 draws at home on the European stage against Sevilla FC (0-0), Shakhtar Donetsk (2-2), Hoffenheim (2) -2), Manchester City (2-2) and FC Barcelona (0-0). The Russian club seems to be a less formidable opponent than the previous guests at Parc OL. Zenit St. Petersburg have lined up 3-of-a-side successes in Spartak Moscow (1-1), against Dinamo St Petersburg (2-1) in friendly play and against Arsenal Tula (3-1) this Friday. In the Champions League, Zénit remain on 3 losses on the field of La Gantoise (2-1) and against Benfica (0-1 and 1-2) in 2015-2016.
Lyon have been unbeaten for five games in the official competition at Groupama Stadium (3 wins and 2 draws).
Zenit has 1 loss and 1 success in its last two trips.
In July 2016, Lyon beat Zenit (2-1) in a friendly match.
OL remain on two draws in the league against Bordeaux and Amiens.
Zénit has only 2 victories in the last 4 days of the championship.
There is no doubt that Olympique Lyonnais will want to pin Zénit St Petersburg on their hunt in this Champions League. Despite the difficulties of the moment, OL can transcend itself for this European match at home!
