Football forecast for Juventus – Lyon
Juventus will play against Lyon in Champions League and we got a Football forecast for the match. The game is on Friday, August 7 from 20:00 UK at Allianz Stadium.
Juventus won Serie A with 83 points after 38 games with only one more point than Inter. Their last two matches were lost in the league. The first club that beat them during that period was Cagliari with 2:0. Their last clash was against AS Roma and the Wolves won that game with 1:3. However, Cristiano Ronaldo and other key players were rested and we expect to see the different face from the team.
Ligue 1 was stopped and not resumed like the rest of the top football championship in Europe. Lyon finished in 7th place with 40 points after 28 matches. Because of that, the French team prepared for this key clash with friendlies. They played 5 games and won 4 of them. The only team that beat them was Rangers 0:2. Their first official match was against PSG for the cup. The clash finished without goals and extra time also. After penalties, PSG won the title. Lyon players seemed totally exhausted at the end but I think that they will be more prepared for the match against Juve which is a week later.
The first match between these teams finished with a victory 1:0 for Lyon in France. Juventus in the favorite in the upcoming game and that is understandable giving the fact that they have better players and also are in form because of the resuming of Serie A.
However, Lyon showed against PSG that they can defend and the fact that they kept a clean sheet in the final for 120 minutes against Neymar and Icardi proved it. I expect a very defensive football from the French team and fewer than 3 goals. Football forecast: Under 2.5
