Lyon vs Benfica Match Preview

Lyon host Benfica for their Matchday 4 Champions League clash just days after their weekend trip to Toulouse, where they come desperate to build on Wednesday’s win over Metz (2-0) which marked a return to the winning ways after eight Ligue 1 outings without one.

Les Gones have snatched a 0-2 win at RB Leipzig along the way and this gives them lively chances in what’s shaping an expected tough battle for top 2 spots, as they sit just two points behind the pace-setters. They have a lot yet to prove, though, and Rudi Garcia has a lot to work on it feels.

Benfica have been more convincing domestically and sit at the top of the Primeira Liga, travelling to France just days after their clash against Rio Ave. However, they have a four-match winning streak to build on and this includes a 2-1 win over Lyon in front of the home fans two weeks ago.

Aguias have been scoring goals on the regular and while they’ve struggled for defensive consistency on the road, this promises a very strong challenge in Decines-Charpieu. We now hope to see them in good spirits and we do feel they have what it takes to snatch a point on Tuesday evening.

We will thus stick with the visitors to do just that and going for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 8/11 with bet365 feels like the best approach to the fixture, especially seeing Lyon have struggled to dominate and retain any stability across competitions.

We should still be in for goals and we expect Benfica will have to score if they’re to do so. With that in mind, we’re also backing a Yes on Both teams to score and we’ve already seen many in the know rate it a banker bet at 8/13 with William Hill.
