Lyon vs Hoffenheim Live: Kick-Off, News, Prediction and Preview

Lyon vs Hoffenheim Live | UEFA Champions League Date: Wednesday, 7 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET | Venue: Groupama Stadium (Decines-Charpieu)

The first match between Lyon and Hoffenheim completely justified the slogan because it offered a real dramatic goal two weeks ago at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim. The momentum wavered throughout the fight, which eventually ended in a draw with a Joelton substitute at the end of the game.

Lyon made the breakthrough thanks to Kevin Vogt’s terrible mistake of returning to a Baumann goal. Bertrand Traoré took advantage of the error. Andrej Kramaric reversed the situation for the German team before Tanguy Ndombele and Memphis Depay returned to Lyon.

The draw left the two teams in contention for second place, but Lyon is in a much better position for this game at home. The French champions are in second place with five points, three more than Hoffenheim and Shakhtar midway through the preliminary phase.

Lyon vs Hoffenheim: Prediction

A victory here would allow Hoffenheim to score points with Les Gones. We can say that it is imperative for Die Kraichgauer at this stage, as they have to face Manchester City in England before the end of the group stage.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men will enter the game with greater confidence after their 1-4 defeat at the club-shaped Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Joe Linton confirmed his fate in excellent form by using a double at BayArena, while Reiss Nelson and Vincenzo Grifo also scored.

Lyon, on the other hand, drew 1-1 at Bordeaux this weekend. This result ended with their two victories in Ligue 1 and allowed them to remain in fourth place after 12 rounds of the competition.

We really should be on goals on Wednesday and supporting the goals of more than 2.5, FT and BTTS is a must based on everything that is written above.

Lyon vs Hoffenheim: Betting tips
  • More than 2.5 goals FT and BTTS @ 1.61 (8/13)
  • More than 3.5 goals FT to 2.00 (1/1)
