In Lyon, hosts won only twice this season, so playing against Benfica will be very difficult. Read our thoughts about this exciting UEFA Champions League Lyon vs Benfica game, here below.

Lyon vs Benfica

While Benfica confidently stands at 1st place of Portuguese Primeira Liga after 10 Round, Olympique Lyonnais tries to come back on top after a weak start in Ligue 1. Benfica lost points only in one game, and now have an almost excellent streak of 9 wins and 1 defeat. They are in front by 5 points even against FC Porto which also one of the favourites in Portugal competing for the title. Lyon at the moment stands at 9th place with 4 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats. However, they took to victories during the last 2 rounds and strengthened their position in France. Les Gones showed very strong character facing Toulouse in the last Round as even being behind they took 3 important points.

In Champions League Benfica have already 2 defeats against Zenit Peterburg and RB Leipzig. Olympique Lyonnais lost only to Benfica and played on the equal level against Zenit and what is more important won against RB Leipzig in Germany. Now, these teams need to collect points in all possible matches, so here we will see a very interesting confrontation between French Lyon and Portuguese Benfica.

Injuries

Lyon preparing to this game without any losses. Very likely, that Benfica will play without Ferman Conti, Rafa Silva and Raul de Tomas.
