RB Leipzig vs Lyon Match Preview
A single goal from Emil Forsberg proved nothing but a consolation as RB Leipzig saw their seven-match unbeaten streak ended by Schalke (1-3) over the weekend and they now host Lyon for their Champions League clash looking to bounce back quickly and make it two out of two in Group G.
Die Bullen beat Benfica (1-2) with goals from Timo Werner and the in-form German has led the attacking line as they kept scoring numbers of goals on the regular, bagging six wins in seven outings across competitions – and only seeing a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich along the way. However, Julian Nagelsmann now has to be searching for a quick fix after the weekend disappointment.
Lyon have seen a longer run of disappointments, though, and now head to Red Bull Arena with a streak of seven games without a win. They’ve been beaten by Nantes (0-1) with a single own-goal from Fernando Marcal and will obviously need more to cause an upset in Germany.
Les Gones have thus suffered their third loss since late August and just four draws seen along the way will hardly be more of a confidence booster. They struggled to keep it together at the back and just couldn’t outgun the rivals along the way, which will be just as worrying despite scoring four on their last two trips to Amiens (2-2) and Brest (2-2).
We feel RB Leipzig will be able to capitalize on such circumstances and we’ll back them to secure all three points in another exciting game looming. We’ll thus go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which feels like a generous pick at 10/11 with bet365.
We do expect Lyon just as motivated, though, seeing Zenit (1-1) snatched an important point at Groupama Stadium already. We thus hope to see goals on both ends, as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 6/10 with William Hill.
