Man City In Great Form

Pep Guardiola’s first season in Manchester was essentially a bedding-in period as he needed time to get his ideas across to the players, but since the start of last season they’ve been amongst the most impressive teams out there and their group stage showings in the Champions League demonstrate that. Indeed, they’ve won eight of 10 such games, including four from five on their travels as the exception came on the final matchday against Shakhtar last term – after they’d already waltzed the group.

While the other defeat across those 10 games came in the reverse of this fixture, Man City were surprisingly lacklustre on that occasion and their scintillating form since then means we can put that down as a mere off day. Indeed, they’ve won 11 of 12 unbeaten games across all competitions prior to a trip to London to face former manager Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham, while they’ve piled on the goals as they’ve netted 38 times across these – including four games that saw them win by at least five clear goals.

Lyon Vulnerable At The Back

Lyon have shown plenty of vulnerability at the back as they’ve had 2-2 draws in both home games in this seasons’ Champions League, and City will fancy their chances of outgunning both Shakhtar and Hoffenheim. In fact, prior to a trip to St-Etienne on Friday evening, the hosts have seen both teams score in 10 of their last 13 matches and despite only losing once – away at PSG – they still shipped at least two goals in over half of these games. Bruno Genesio’s men might get away with such rearguard susceptibility in the comfort of Ligue 1, where only PSG have outscored them since the beginning of last term, but up against City’s riches of talent should find themselves exposed this time around. Indeed, they conceded five times when they faced PSG in October, while City put six past Shakhtar in their last Champions League outing.

Lyon v Man City Betting Tips

Four of Lyon’s last five in Europe have seen at least four goals, with these averaging 4.4 per game. On home turf an incredible eight of their last 11 on the continent have seen Over 3.5 Goals as nine saw both teams find the net. City have certainly tightened up at the back with the blossoming partnership between John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, but most teams are too wary of their firepower to have a go at them, with Lyon one of the few that will as they proved on matchday one. With that in mind, we expect the hosts to at least grab a consolation effort even if it should be totally in vain.
