Sergio Aguero and the lads have already won one trophy this season as they celebrated in the Community Shield against Chelsea. They missed the chance to win only once so far in the season and are two points behind Liverpool and Chelsea.

The Citizens have been the most productive side in the Premier League and they are expected to keep up the form in the top continental competition as well. They are once more considered as one of the title contenders and the fans are expecting a victorious start of the Champions League campaign.

Lyon managed to snatch their place in the top three of the Ligue 1 last season in a very thrilling finish of the season. However, their form is not very stable at the beginning of the campaign as they have suffered two defeats in the first five rounds.

Although Lyon been pretty tight in the back, Bruno Genesio’s side needs to improve their finishing if they want to be competitive for the top three once again. In the opening round of the top continental cup, they are going to face a very tight challenge.

Manchester City vs Lyon: Head-to-head

These two sides still didn’t have the chance to meet each other in the official clashes.

Manchester City faced French clubs three times and they were partially successful.

They draw with PSG in their first clash and then managed to eliminate them in the Champions League quarter-finals.

However, the hosts failed to an away goal defeat against Monaco in the Round of 16 two seasons ago.

Manchester City vs Lyon: Prediction

Manchester City are strong favourites in this one as they should be capable of continuing their good run. It would be a huge surprise if the hosts don’t book their first three points in this one.

Home side has been very efficient so far and although Lyon haven’t been involved in too many efficient clashes this season, in this one we are expecting to see at least three goals in total. The crowd should be able to enjoy a very entertaining clash.
