Lyon vs Juventus: Juventus wants the trophy
Lyon vs Juventus: Match preview
Certainly, the Lyon players are one of the biggest disappointments in the French League 1. Namely, the team from Gerlain is currently only in seventh place in the table. They have seriously questioned the placement in the Champions League next season, which is no doubt their the primary objective.
It is true that Juventus players are playing a bit weaker this season than they have been in the past few seasons. But, if we look back at the results then it is certain that all fans of this team have plenty of reasons to be pleased.
Lyon team news:
In Lyon, at the beginning of the season, they decided to gamble by placing inexperienced Sylvinho in the position of coach. That this move hasn’t paid off is best illustrated by the fact that he was fired early in October leaving the team just above the relegation zone in the championship standings.
His successor, Rudi Garcia, stabilized the team and returned it to the race for third place. Also, in the very even Champions League group he managed to win the knockout stage of the competition. The current form of Lyon is not satisfying.
In the last away game against Metz they interrupted a series of four games without a win. Also, it should be noted that two weeks ago in the Cup they recorded a victory against currently runner-up Olympique Marseille.
Probable lineup: Lopes, Denayer, Marcelo, Marcal, Dubois, Tousart, Aouar, Cornet, Toko Ekambi, Dembele, Terrier.
Juventus team news:
Juventus is not brilliant this season, but despite this their coach can’t complain about the results achieved so far. His team is the leader in the championship table after 25 rounds of Serie A.
They are still in the Cup competition and play against Milan, while in the Champions League they achieved the primary goal of going into the knockout phase of the competition. In here, they are waiting to meet Lyon as a big favorite.
Although Lyon was the wish of many in the draw, in Juventus the French representative should not be underestimated. We say that because Juventus in recent games against Napoli, Verona and Milan proved to be very vulnerable.
Probable lineup: Szczesny, Danilo, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro, Ramsey, Pjanić, Bentancur, Cuadrado, Ronaldo, Dybala.
When all is taken down and taken away, it must be admitted that Juventus is a great favorite in this match. Namely, the “old lady” is determined to go a long way in the Champions League this season. Their draw was favored as they were awarded to play against Lyon.
