Lyon may have been able to select three points at Metz on Friday, but there's no denying that the French giants are struggling right now. They have been almost ever-present in the Ligue 1 top for more than 20 decades, but in the time of writing they discover themselves down at 7th position, six points adrift of Lille at 4th place.
Obviously, they've had their share of success this season. Qualifying in their Champions League team was among these, but a succession of injuries and bad performances has got the joy from Parc OL. They come to this match having won two of their past six in most competitions, and they are still without star man Memphis Depay.
Depay's absence leaves them tons of quality going forward, that is never a good place to maintain when confronted with the possibility of Juventus' enormously experienced and talented line.
Juventus might not be dominating Serie A since they have completed the past couple of years, however they remain in top spot after their victory on SPAL on Saturday. The Old Lady have now won seven of the last 11 competitive games away, with lots of these being played against teams in far better shape compared to the Lyon outfit.
Even more encouraging was Cristiano Ronaldo finding the net once again, meaning the attacker has scored a sensational 23 goals in his last 18 games for club and country. As most of us know, the all time leading scorer in the Champions League has a inclination to turn on the design in regards to this competition.
Understandably, Juventus are favourites with this tie. The seeing Italians won all their past five Champions League group stage matches, and their four previous meetings with Lyon have produced three wins and a draw.
We're backing a Juventus win , and with the two of their previous trips to Lyon finish 1-0 into Juventus we like the appearance of this for our correct score forecast, notably using Lyon missing such a vital leader in Memphis Depay.
