Match : CSKA Moscow vs Lyon
Competition : Europe League
Time / Date : 20:00h / 8 March 2018
Venue : VEB Arena
Russian giants performing very well in new year and yet to concede a goal ,they manage to reach this round after beat Red Star Belgrade with 1:0 on aggregate and in Russia win in last game against Ural ,now are only 1 point behind the first Krasnodar.
They can’t find the right formula right now and manage to win only 3 time in last 10 games, in last game they make draw with Montpellier in this game Nabil Fekir was missing and for Europe League game is doubtful.
Home team is without Viktor Vasin who is injured and Vasili Berezutsky who is suspended.
Aleksei Berezutki , Georgy Schennikov , Timur Zhamaletdinov all doubtful
Lyon are without Rafael and their talisman Nabil is huge doutbful.
This is first time this two teams to play each other.
Both teams are not very impressive up front and CSKA make some good performance at defence , that is why I expect boring first game with 1 or maximum 2 goals.
-Under 2.5 Match Goals @1.75
For winner I can choose CSKA , becuase Lyon never won in Russia, winless in three matches and is not easy to play in Russia for no body.
-Home team @2.62
