Football Prediction of the Day Lyon vs Benfica
The two formations do not meet and are forced to attack. If they want to go further, in the finals, the victory is imperative for both. In this context I expect a game with enough goals, but not too much.
Lyon has from the middle up quality footballers like Moussa Dembele, Depay, Aouar or Betrand Traore. He is not bad on the defensive either, he has scored maximum 2 goals in the matches this season. In 2 of her last 3 disputes the interval of success was between 3 and 5.
Bet Tips: total goals 3-5
Pretty balanced duel on the Parc Olympique Lyonnais where I expect a spectacular new result from both teams.
The hosts are unrecognizable this season both at the European level and at the domestic level where he has fallen a lot in the game, but the last two positive results of the championship in which he scored 5 times could be a new chance of relaunching for the French.
Nor do the Portuguese impress too much, except for the championship where the opponent is largely modest. I go hand in hand with a forecast on goals, and given the desperate need for points from both teams, I expect at least 3 successes on the table.
Prediction Today: Over 2.5 goals
