Lyon v CSKA Moscow betting tips

Lyon’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League via their league position remain slim, but they kept them alive nonetheless on Sunday after securing a slim 1-0 win at home to Caen. It’s been a strong campaign for the club, who have responded positively to the loss of Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal, continuing to perform well in an attacking sense despite the loss of their star centre-forward.

However, they will have to do without talisman Nabil Fekir once again on Thursday night, who remains missing with a knee injury, although they will take confidence from the fact they won away in Russia without their captain. Instead, Mariano Diaz, Memphis Depay and Bertrand Traore will all lead the line with the responsibility of firing the team through to the quarter-finals.

As for CSKA, they returned to form at the weekend with a 3-0 win away to Akhmat Grozny, a result they will hope can act as a timely morale-boost ahead of a must-win game on Thursday. Currently eight points behind Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian Premier League table, it seems increasingly unlikely that this team will be able to win the league this season, adding to the importance of this fixture.

This is just the second away game CSKA have played in the Europa League since 2012, but they have enjoyed a successful record on the road in this competition, winning five of their last seven before this campaign. However, they have historically struggled in France, winning just once in their history on French soil with this being their first meeting with Lyon.

Lyon have lost just once in the Europa League this season, that coming in a 1-0 defeat away to Atalanta and after beating Villarreal 3-1 at home in their round of 32 tie, this is a game they will expect to win and come out from with a place in the last 8.
