Lyon vs Zenit St Petersburg Match Preview

Lyon haven’t seen a win in any of their last three outings and they now host Zenit St Petersburg for their Champions League clash on Tuesday looking to finally put the unwanted Ligue 1 streak behind them in an attempt to get off on the right foot in Group G.

Les Gones have seen a narrow 1-0 loss in Montpellier and a 1-1 home draw against Bordeaux ahead of the International break, failing to bounce to the winning ways more recently – conceding a last-minute equalizer at Amiens (2-2). Sylvinho now needs a quick fix and Champions League points would surely be a great boost to their confidence.

Zenit have beaten Lyon in both of their 2015 Champions League clashes and would surely love to build on such records now. They’ve got just as much to prove here and we expect them very motivated, as the visitors promise a strong challenge at Groupama Stadium despite being rated underdogs by the bookies.

Lvy have a three-match winning streak to build on, after beating Spartak Moscow (0-1) and building on it with a friendly win over Sochi (2-1) as well as the Premier League win over Arsenal Tula (3-1) most recently. In-form Artem Dzyuba led the attacking line and we do see them making it on the scoresheet in France as well.

We still feel Lyon will be able to outgun the rivals in an exciting contest looming, as we go for a Home win at 3/4 with Unibet. We have seen them scoring numbers of goals and we feel this should be enough to secure the important points early in the campaign.

With that in mind, we do see this one shaping as a high-scoring contest as well. We’ll thus also back Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 10/11 with William Hill and has caught the eye of many as both sides enjoy such clashes on the regular lately.
