ZSKA Moskau vs FC Lyon Soccer Prediction Today

Also next Thursday, Lyon meet in the second round of the Europa League on the Russian top club CSKA Moscow. A thankless and difficult task for the French, to which we deliver in our Europa League Bet Tips as usual all important information.

CSKA Moscow

CSKA Moscow may well be an unpleasant opponent for any opponent in the world, especially in a home game. The home advantage we see on Thursday in the case of the Russians as the biggest plus, not least because you compete on home artificial turf, which the opponents from the regular championship operation are usually not used to. In terms of performance, the team of Viktor Goncharenko has done very well with one exception. At the weekend they won in the Russian all-year championship against Ural 1-0, before that one had to bow in the derby against Spartak, however, smoothly with 0: 3. It was the only defeat of the captains in the last 7 games. In addition, it was also enough against Tosno (6: 0), Kazan (1: 0) and Khabarovsk (4: 2) to full success. In addition, you could succeed in the Champions League this season. Consider the wins against Benfica (2-1) or FC Basel (2-1). Interestingly, 2 of 3 wins in the group stage of the premier class were celebrated abroad. Also in the Russian Premier League CSKA have achieved more success abroad than at home. In 11 games in foreign countries were celebrated 6 victories and only two defeats cashed, in their own stadium had to give three times beaten and also celebrated a full success less. The strengths of the Russians can be seen above all in the Tor values. Only seven goals conceded in the table third of the championship so far, a total of 17 loss hits in 21 games are among the absolute top values ​​in Russia. In the game forward, on the other hand, they did not present themselves particularly well. On average, CSKA scored only 1.5 goals in their previous league games at home, so no fireworks are expected on Thursday. A betting tip in the form of an over / under bet is also an absolute recommendation with regard to the round of the last 16 of the Europa League: against Red Star Belgrade fell in 180 minutes only one goal, ZSKA won in the home game just with 1: 0. Important: Coach Goncharenko will have almost all squad players available on Thursday: only 3 players are injured or suspended, but all three from the last stable defense, namely Vasin, Berezutski and Fernandes. This fact is alleviated somewhat by the fact that CSKA mostly operates in a 3-5-2 system.

Olympique Lyon

Just a few weeks back, Olympique Lyon was in the thick of fighting for a place in the upcoming UEFA Champions League campaign, winning a Marseille and Monaco second place in Ligue 1 and even taking the confident leader from Paris Defeat 2: 1. But in the meantime, Bruno Genesio’s team has been torn apart: 5 points behind are on rank 3 in fourth place, even 9 on position 2, which the AS Monaco owns. In the league you have not won since 6 games, so that the longest negative series of the 2017/2018 season more than doubled. In round six to eight this was located in three games. The fact that you last against actually weaker rated teams such as Lille (2: 2), St. Etienne (1: 1) or Bordeaux (1: 3) feathers, does not necessarily give hope for Thursday. Especially not, since Lyon had to accept at least one goal since seven league games in a row. After all, you could be unbeaten in the last 3 encounters, but it had to do it in no way with top teams of the Ligue 1. Accordingly, we see the French in the role of the outsider. Hope makes the fact that the crisis concerns mainly the defensive, so you can certainly hope for one or the other away goal. The numbers of the championship confirm this thesis. Because: Only in one of the last 15 (!) Championship games – in the 0-2 against Stade Rennes – remained Olympique Lyon without own goal. With Memphis Depay and Bertrand Traore, the sides have extremely fast and fast-paced players whose crossings with Nabil Fekir could also find a scorching customer. The wing game should be forced on Thursday, we see the head office but as a playful showpiece of the opponent from Russia. Stark: The away balance of the French is absolutely promising this season. Lyon have won more than 50 percent of their Ligue 1 appearances, scoring 8 wins and scoring 10 more goals than at home. In the round of the last 32 they also defeated the Villareal FC in his stadium 1-0, so far the last competitive win of the Genesio-Eleven. Bitter: According to the current state of affairs, there is a big question mark behind a deployment of the mentioned Nabil Fekir, also right-back Raffael will not be available.
