Manchester City v Lyon Betbuilder – Jacks Selections for Saturday’s Champions League Clash

Lyon are looking for more David v Goliath inspiration when they come up against one of the favourites to win the Champions League trophy, Manchester City, in Lisbon on Saturday evening.

What is the Man City v Lyon Betbuilder?

Getting this far is a great achievement for Lyon, even if their supporters would point out that it’s nothing compared to the days of consistent French league titles during the early 2000s. In truth though, only once before has the club reached the semi-finals of Europe’s elite competition, 10 years ago, so Rudi Garcia will deserved all the plaudits he and his players will get if they somehow find a way past such formidable opposition.

Manchester City’s season has been equally as disappointing as Lyons in the league, finishing a distant second to Liverpool, so only Champions League glory would avenge a poor showing domestically. They waltzed past Real Madrid without really needing to be at their best, taking advantage of defensive errors in the two legs to reach the Quarter-Finals.

It’s hard to make too much of a case for the Citizens not getting through here.

Despite Lyon’s heroics against Juventus, City would have hand picked Lyon a few months back of the remaining teams left in the competition to play at this stage.

Although Garcia’s men are dangerous, they’re very likely to be outscored here by a team that have their sights set on winning this trophy for many months now with the Premier League title out of their grasp so early.

City will dominate the game here and should have enough to pick off Lyon who have earned just three clean sheets in thirteen Champions League fixtures – not the type of record you want to be taking into this match. It makes sense therefore to put City to win as our first bet builder selection.

Over 1.5 goals seems a safe inclusion. It’s landed in Lyon’s 8 games against English teams and in 13 of City’s last 14 matches in all competitions. With this being a one game shootout rather than a two legged affair, it should make for an open contest (as we’ve seen in the last few days).

In truth, City could easily land over 1.5 goals by themselves but there’s no difference in the odds by adding over 1.5 match goals to over 1.5 City goals so we’ll stick with the overall game.

On the free-kicks front, you only have to look at the recent contests in both the Europa and Champions League to know that the absence of fans isn’t really having an effect on how often the referee is blowing his whistle.

Lyon have conceded over 13 free-kicks in their last 8 games (average 18 per match) but with City not being fouled too much themselves recently (just 3 times against Real Madrid in the second leg), I’ll go with a more conservative line of over 10.5 City free-kicks. Offsides are included though, and given how man of those they concede, it could well add to the Lyon foul tally quite nicely.

Lyon to pick up 1 or more card links back to the number of fouls and given how many times they’re being pulled up by the referee, it’s not suprising to see that they’ve had at least a solitary card in each of their last 13 matches.

OL have been very aggressive since January and when they play some of the top sides, as they’ve showed against Juventus and PSG in their last two fixtures, they’re not afraid to get stuck in with seven and four cards received respectively.

Bet Builder – Manchester City Win; Over 1.5 Match Cards; Over 10.5 Manchester City Free-Kicks & Lyon Over 0 Cards (11/10 Bet365)
