Juventus vs Lyon by Rahul

Juventus
VS
Lyon
Lyon come into this game against Juventus knowing all well that they should have walked out of Lyon with at least a point scored as they played extremely well in front of their home fans. If it wasn't for a Lacazette penalty and a freak goal from Cuadrado, Lyon might have grabbed that well deserved point. Instead they travel to the Turin to take on the Old Lady knowing that 3 points are badly needed if they would like to make it to the next round of the competition. Lyon will be pulling all the stops in this encounter to push on for a victory especially after a morale boosting victory against Toulouse on the weekend.

 

Lyon will likely push for a goal from the get go and will rely a lot on their full backs Rafael and Morel along with the wide players Cornet and Ghezzal to expose the Juventus 3-5-2 formation to cross a lot of balls from the wide positions, much like they did in Lyon. Lyon also with Lacazette and Fekir both love to take a lot of shots on target and that results in keepers parrying the ball away for the corner. Lyon's recent corners earned have been as follows: 2, 9, 10, 4, 7, 6, 8, 11. With that kind of form it's hard to see them not being able to push on for more shots and more corners.

 

Juventus come into this game having struggling defensively conceding goals in 4 out of their last 6 games. Juventus are the team who tend to face pressure especially from the top 6-7 sides in Serie A as well as decent sides in Europe like Lyon and Sevilla.Against all the big sides in Serie A, Juventus have tended to concede corners to keep their opponents away from goal – Napoli (4 corners), Milan (5 corners), Inter (5 corners), Sassuolo (5 corners) and Lazio (4 corners).

 

Its hard to see how Lyon who need the win, would not push on for set pieces and lots of cross from the width to pump in a lot of balls into the box and I am backing them to get over 3.5 corners today.
