Olympique Lyon vs CSKA Moscow Europa League
Olympique Lyon and CSKA Moscow meet on Thursday, March 15 at 22:00 in the second leg of the European League final finals.
In the tour, the French were forced to score 1-0 in Russia at the end of a match with many goal-breaks (12), balanced on the possession of the CSKA balloon (56% Russians, 44% French), but also at corners (4-3).
Lyon had excellent home country evolutions in the Europa League, including the group stage, when he scored many goals (8-1 goals in 3 games). Then in the 16th, he defeated his own stadium with 3-1 Villarreal, after he had made Spain 1-0.
CSKA Moscow has reached the optimum stage with the victories to the limit, generally with 1-0 and many results of equality. Even in the 16th I overcame Red Belgrade Belgrade after 0-0 in Serbia and 1-0 in Moscow.
This time, CSKA will be compelled to tackle the Lyon match according to the word “all or nothing”. The Russians have to go through the attack, aware that they have to score as much as the chances for the French to score are very high.
Moreover, the Russian coach, Viktor Goncharenko, has made it clear that he is going to tackle the Lyon match with a more offensive score.
Lyon will play without her captain, Nabil Fekir, knee-jerked. The Russians left Vasin and Fernandes.
The French have to shoot hard to reach the final, because the last act in the Europa League will be played on its stadium in May, and fans do not think that such an opportunity is missed. The Russians play their last qualifying card. So I expect a spectacular game with many goals.
