Reason for Lyon vs Porto Predictions
Truth be told, Porto lost the reverse fixture of this clash by a lone goal; however, we would like to point out that they’ve been a really tough team to beat. Porto won 16 of their last 20 games across all competitions; they lost just one of those 20 games, drawing the other three. On the other hand, Lyon has not been consistent; they have won just three of their last seven games. It’s important to note that Lyon is coming off a loss at home, and they lost three of their previous seven games. With both teams’ respective forms in mind, we believe that Porto will at least not lose this match. Karl Toko Ekambi is the best player for the home side, and he has excellent dribbles. His greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Rayan Cherki will miss this match due to injury. Rayan Cherki (Metatarsal Fracture) and Sinaly Diomandé (Ankle Surgery) aren’t available for Lyon manager Peter Bosz.
We’ve already established that Porto has been a difficult team to beat; we should also mention that other teams find it hard to shut them out. Porto found the net in 22 of their last 23 games across all competitions; conversely, they conceded their fair share of goals. Porto allowed at least one goal in five of their previous six games, with both teams scoring in four of those six games. In the same vein, Lyon scored in 10 of their last 12 games; they have seen their defense breached in four of their previous five games, with both teams scoring in three of those five games. On that note, we should expect goals at both ends. Mateus Uribe is an experienced player who means a lot to the team, he moves well, and he can play in several positions. Mehdi Taremi is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
There are no favorites in this match, and we won’t be surprised if this clash could end in a draw.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
