RB Leipzig vs Lyon Today’s Free Betting Tips
Leipzig has been firmly established as one of the strongholds of German football for a few seasons. Last May, Red Bull took third place in the Bundesliga, ensuring its participation in this phase of Champions League groups. For its first meeting in Group G, the RB Leipzig has emerged in the stadium of la Luz, Benfica. After an intense first half but no goal, the debates accelerated in the second half following the opening score of the inevitable Timo Werner (69th). In the wake the German international doubled the bet (78th) before Seferovic reduced the mark. In the end, the partners of Forsberg realized one of the big blows of this 1st day by winning this 1st match out of their bases (1-2). In Bundeliga, Leipzig dropped from 1st place this weekend. Indeed, the club conceded its first loss of the season Saturday on his lawn after being roughed by Schalke 04 (1-3). Before that loss, the club had a record of four wins and one draw (against Bayern) in the first five days.
Third in Ligue 1 last May, Olympique Lyonnais managed to clinch their ticket for a new Champions League after having managed to reach the knockout stage last season, finally eliminated by FC Barcelona. Led by the new coach Sylvinho, the Gones had started this new season with a great success on the Rock of Monaco (3-0) and a large victory at the reception of Angers (6-0). The team has disappointed since and remains on a bad dynamic of 6 games without success (3 defeats and 3 draws). This had not happened to him since the 1990s. On Saturday, the Lyonnais were again beaten in their stadium, this time by Nantes, despite several opportunities in their favor in the first half (0-1). Following this new setback, the Gones fell back to 11th in Ligue 1. In Group G of the Champions League, Lyon was surprised from the outset by Zenith Saint-Petersburg at home, conceding finally the draw at home during the first day (1-1).
The staff for RB Leipzig vs Lyon
For Leipzig, the promising young Adams and the important Kampl and Wolf are stuck in the infirmary. Absent from the trip to Benfica, Austrian international Ilsanker and Czech international Schick could this time be on the scoresheet even if the former Roman is announced uncertain (ankle).
Lyon is without his current defender Denayer and substitute winger Cornet. Denayer should be replaced by summer rookie Andersen, unconvincing so far. Left idle Saturday against Nantes, the left-back holder Koné makes his return.
