Zenit St Petersburg vs Lyon Match Preview
Lyon returned to Ligue 1 with a 2-1 win over Nice on Saturday and kept climbing back up the table, now travelling to St Petersburg for their Champions League clash in good spirits and surely hoping to build on the performance crowned with early goals from Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Moussa Dembele.
Les Gones thus bagged four wins in five outings across competitions and only saw Marseille (2-1) interrupt the streak. They’ve been scoring goals on the regular and certainly have ground to build on, which promises a strong challenge at Saint-Petersburg Stadium as well.
Zenit ended an unpredictable spell of form with quite narrow wins over Arsenal Tula (0-1) ahead of the International break and Rubin Kazan (1-2) after it, which adds to high expectations for the Wednesday’s clash. They’ve struggled at home ground lately, though, and Sergei Semak’s men have a lot to prove.
Lvi have four points to their name and will feel the top 2 spots at their fingertips, with Lyon sitting just three points clear. They travel to Benfica on the final day of the Group stage and the result here could make all the difference, where a loss would end their chances to make it to the knockout rounds early.
We feel Lyon will be too much for them to handle at this point, though, and we’ll now stick with the visitors to make a great step towards securing the top 2 spot. Going for a Double Chance – Draw or Away win looks like a banker bet at 4/7 with bet365 and we’ll now follow in the footsteps of many heavy hitters.
We should be in for goals, though, and Lyon will have to outgun the rivals if they’re to bag the points. With that in mind, we’re backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/13 with William Hill – which comes off as just as much of a banker bet here.
