Our match prediction:
Olympique Lyon will face Valencia in their second game of the group stage. Both teams weren't able to win their first game in the Champions League. Lyon was unable to return the 3 points home against AA Gent meanwhile Valencia had a rough night at home and lost 2-3 against the Russian team Zenit St. Petersburg. Valencia is performing average in their national league and Lyon 8th in the French Ligue 1. We expect both teams to be equal to each other. The home advantage for Lyon puts Valencia slightly in the underdog position which will give them the opportunity to play with less pressure.
