While Olympique Lyonnais struggling at the beginning of the season, Leipzig stands at second place in Bundesliga and showing very best skills so far. Read our thoughts about this interesting UEFA Champions League RB Leipzig vs Lyon match, here below.
These teams have never met before.
Last season Leipzig took only 3rd place in UEFA Europa League in a really not toughest group. They collected 7 points in 6 games and were two points away from Celtic, which was at 2nd place. Red Bulls this year were unbeaten until they met Schalke in the last round of Bundesliga. They surprisingly lost a home game with 1:3 result. However, had a great start of the season and even controlled the top of the table for several tours. They had only 1 draw before against Bayern Munich, which looks very strong for such a young team.
This season, Bulls have a very big potential to reach very great results. Moreover, they already showed their abilities in ChampionsEven playing at League playing against Benfica, which have much more experience in such big competitions. Even playing at Estádio da Luz, in Lisabon, Leipzig won this game with 2:1 result and took the leading position in Group G, as Lyon and Zenit played draw. On Wednesday, playing at home should be a great opportunity to take 3 more points and strengthen the leaders’ place.
Unfortunately, Kevin Kampl and Hannes Wolf will miss next game due to injuries.
Olympique Lyonnais last season played stronger football and met Barcelona at last 16 round. Even played a draw in Lyon, Barcelona smashed them at Camp Nou with 1:5 result. Unfortunately, this season started very strangely. They confidently won 2 first games over Monaco and Angers scoring 9 goals and conceding 0 in Ligue 1. There were great prospects after two such wonderful matches, but things went into the pit. Now, the team failed to win already in 7 matches in a row in different competitions. Olympique lost twice against Nantes and Paris Saint Germain both playing at home ground. Moreover, in the first round of Champions League, they played a draw against Russians Zenit with 1:1 result. After such a strong start, and great attacking and defensive football, they conceded already 5 goals against not very strongest opponents in 3 last away games. Knowing, how dangerous can be Leipzig, this match will be very tough for French.
