Lyon vs Sevilla
UEFA Champions League – Group H
Date: Wednesday, 7th December 2016.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK,
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
Olympique Lyonnais will ready themselves for Sevilla showdown at Stade de Lyon on Wednesday night. Lyon are still in the game as win by two or more goals will put them in the Knockout stage ahead of Sevilla.
Lyon lost the reverse of this fixture by a lone goal, but a 1 nil win won’t be enough for Lyon as they have a poor goal difference in all matches compared to Sevilla. They are 3rd in the table with 7 points, 3 points below their visitors Sevilla who have 10 points.
Sevilla already have one foot into the knockout stage and only needs a draw to progress. They slipped out of the top spot last time out, they lost 3-1 to the current leaders Juventus. Now they hope not to lose or at worst not to lose above 1 nil as that will put Lyon ahead of them in Head to Head record.

Lyon vs Sevilla: Prediction
This game will be tough considering the form of the two teams involved and their past records. There are no favourites in this game, as the game looks 50:50. We feel it’s best to check on a double chance with Lyon have a better lifeline. It will be safer to back them to win or draw. Also the game will have less goal just like the reverse of the fixture at Spain.
