UCL Match Preview: Lyon vs Manchester City

Lyon will hope to do the double over Manchester City in the Champions League after their 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the year. They sit three points behind City in group F and will have been boosted by their 1-0 derby win over Saint-Etienne on Friday night ahead of this clash.

City’s sole defeat this season came at the hands of Lyon, yet since that loss, they have failed to win only one of their last 13 competitive matches, that coming in a 0-0 draw with Liverpool, a match they could have won late on. They’re yet to lose an away match this season, so should be confident of prolonging that unbeaten streak.

Lyon weren’t convincing on Friday night and while they’ll hope to maximise home advantage, City may eke out a narrow win.
