Lyon lost 3 more players to injury last weekend when they lost another game at home to Lens in Ligue 1. Lens had no points in the league before that game.
Lyon's squad is decimated with injuries :
Umtiti, Bedimo, Biševac, Fekir, Fofana, Gourcuff, Grenier, Benzia, Yattara
Furthermore, Rose is suspended and won't play tonight either.
There is no doubt that Olympique is going through difficult times and there is a tendency to believe that the motivation of the team will not be at normal levels tonight. Big teams such as Lyon are not that interested in Europa League and after losing 2 games already in Ligue 1, it might be better for the team to focus on local championship this year.
On the other side, Astra are definitely a team to be praised. They are a real team, without any team stars and they work together very well. They have eliminated Slovan Liberec in previous round after 2 wins showing up concentrated in the 2nd game after winning the 1st leg 3-0.
They are doing well in Romanian Championship also, being ranked 3rd at the moment. They won away against Rapid Bucharest in they last game. For tonight they have only one unavailable player who is Gaman (injured).
Astra will approach this game with high morale and I do not see them trying to keep the advantage gained in the 1st leg by defending. They have scored two in Lyon and they will score more tonight. I am taking more risk with the -1AH because I am expecting this to turn into a game with many goals.
