Lyon vs Roma Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lyon and Roma will square off at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Thursday night for the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie. Lyon only managed a 1-1 draw on the road at Bordeaux last time out in Ligue 1 thanks to a late equaliser from Emanuel Mammana. On the contrary, Roma were narrowly beaten 1-2 at home by SSC Napoli, with their consolation goal being scored by Kevin Strootman.

Lyon Preview

Lyon have been in a mixed run of form in this early part of the new year, but it appears the have found some consistency of late. Les Gones come into this tie on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning four and drawing once in the process. During this solid run, Lyon managed a humiliating 11-2 victory over AZ Alkmaar in the previous round of their Europa League campaign. Prior to their round of 32 tie against Alkmaar, Lyon finished 3rd in their Champions League group H table, just three points off the 2nd-placed Sevilla. Lyon can count on their recent form ahead of this clash as they have won seven of their last eight home fixtures across all competitions. The most impressive thing is that Lyon have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight home games in all competitions. In addition, Les Gones have only lost one of their four UEFA home games this season, while winning two in this term. Domestically, Lyon find themselves only in 4th spot in the Ligue 1 table with 47 points under their belts after 27 rounds, already 15 points off the 3rd-placed Nice. Alexandre Lacazette has played a crucial role in Lyon’s performances throughout this 2016/17 competitive season, as the 25-year-old striker has netted 25 goals across all competitions.

Roma Preview

Roma have been terrible over the past two weeks, having lost three of their last four games across all competitions. The Giallorossi were beaten 2-0 away at their city rivals Lazio in the first leg of their Coppa Italia Semifinalis tie a week ago, and followed this up with a narrow 1-2 home defeat at the hands of SSC Napoli in the Serie A at the weekend. They still sit in second position in the Serie A table, but they now have just two points more than the 3rd-placed SSC Napoli, and are already eight points off the current leaders Juventus. Despite the recent mini-blip, Roma still hold the second best defensive record in the Serie A, having conceded 25 goals in 27 league outings. Regarding their Europa League adventure this season, Roma finished unbeaten their group stage campaign, before beating Villarreal 4-1 on aggregate in the round of 32. Actually, they were unbeaten in seven Europa League fixtures prior to their 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Villarreal in the second leg of their tie last week. On the road, the Giallorossi are undefeated in five European away fixtures this season, winning two and drawing three in the process. Overall, Roma were on a three-game winning streak on the road across all competitions before losing 2-0 at Lazio on their most recent trip. Edin Dzeko has been phenomenal throughout this 2016/17 competitive season, helping the team with 29 goals across all competitions.
