Lyon vs Besiktas by Alican5

Olympique Lyon - Besiktas UEFA Europa League Quarter Final 1st Leg


Actually I love to watch Lyon playing at home no matter which team they play against. They're playing offensive good football with their talented players. That's the reason why 9 of their last 10 games have ended over 3.5 . They managed to knock Roma out of Europa League and I think they are going to do the same thing to Besiktas also. I know that their manager commented respectfully in the press conference but I think Lyon will try to dominate the game and set up a high pressure against the visitor team at the very beginning. If Besiktas will choose to step back and try defensive football, Lyon has players, capable to unlock the closed defence like Fekir, Valbuena. Otherwise, I think Alexandre Lacazette more likely would find the spaces and chances to score. It looks Tosic and Marcelo will play in the center of the defence for Besiktas. For me, they both decent defenders, especially Marcelo, but they are having trouble against fast attackers and it's well known that Lacazette is real talented and agile striker. As we consider all those things I mentioned above, I think French side will find a lot of opportunities to score goals.


Besiktas did a marvellous comeback against Trabzonspor last weekend. They fought to win the game to the last second and proved that they're great offensively.


Vincent Aboubakar and Ricardo Quaresma. I admit that these two players means a lot for Besiktas offense. Despite they will miss tonight's game, Besiktas still has a lot of quality in the attack.


Turkish national team striker Cenk Tosun will play as a centre forward, Anderson Talisca will play as a wing playmaker and thanks to his great technique, he is able to create chances to wing back Gökhan Gönül(when he join the attacks) and striker Cenk with through balls and crosses. Other winger will be Ryan Babel, he is fast enough to carry the ball and create chances in possible counter attacks. Besiktas manager Senol Gunes said that their first aim is to show good football to the fans. I dont know if this is a mind game before the match but one way or another, I think Besiktas will step up offensively and set a pressure on Lyon from time to time. In my opinion, it's not wise choice to underestimate visitor team.


We might see a lot of goals tonight so my pick is Over 2.5.

Fbombs, yeah that is also a safe option mate. It would be a huge surprise if this game will end under 1.5 actually
