Our football match prediction:
Parc Olympique Lyon will host Wednesday’s football match between Lyon and Sevilla. Los Sevillanos are one point behind Group H leaders Juventus ahead of the last group match, meaning that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against les Gones. Olympique Lyon need to record a big win over Sevilla if they are to make it to the Champions League knockout stages and there is every chance we will see a high-scoring affair in Wednesday’s clash. Bruno Genesio’s men are regarded as good hosts and seeing that they have been scoring goals for fun in the Ligue 1 of late, we predict that the hosts will find the net against Sevilla. Jorge Sampaoli’s troops, on the other hand, are desperate to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Granada, meaning that they will go for a win in their last group game as well.
