Lyon - Juventus: what choice to make?


26/02/2020, 20.00 GMT
Champions League

Odds: 1.64


On Wednesday, February 26, in the first match of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, the French Lyon at the Olympic Lyon Park will receive the Italian Juventus. The game starts at 23:00 GMT.


Lyon ended up in the same group of the Champions League with Zenith, Leipzig and Benfica, not being considered the original main favorite for access to the playoffs. As a result, the “Les Gones” fought a fierce struggle for the second line up to the last round - a (2:2) draw with Leipzig allowed them to get ahead of Benfica and Zenit by one point.

The championship of France is not successful for Lyon - after 26 rounds, the team of Rudi Garcia takes only seventh place in the table. Lyon are four points behind the Europa League zone, and the third Lille has already come off by six points. In the last round, the team defeated the Mets (2:0), thus obtaining the first victory in the last five matches of the championship.

Juventus, unlike its current rival, had no problems in the group - Atletico, Bayer and Lokomotiv did not show adequate resistance to Maurizio Sarri's team. “Zebras” came first to the finish line with 16 points in the asset, ahead of the second Atletico by six points, gaining five wins in six rounds.

In Serie A, things are not going so smoothly for Juventus - despite the fact that they are the leader of the championship, the team still cannot afford to relax. The second Lazio is only one point behind, and Inter has six points less and it has not played his match in the 25th round. In the last meeting, Juventus easily dealt with SPAL, beating the opponent (2: 1) on his field.


Lyon throughout the season looks extremely unstable - “Les Gones” have problems in defense, which is often used by rivals. Today, Rudy Garcia’s team will probably try to play more reliably at their gates, given the value of a goal conceded in their field, so it’s hardly worth waiting for serious activity in the attack from them.

The same can be said about Juventus, which is quite reliable in defense and does not take risks without special need - the “Old Lady” will probably hold today's match in its traditional style and will achieve the result it needs.

In our opinion, the hosts will not be able to win and the match will not be productive. We offer a combined forecast - Juventus will not lose + total is less than (2.5) goals (2X And TU 3.5 - Yes).

In 1x bet, such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.64
