Champions League Shakhtar vs Lyon
Shakhtar team of Paulo Fonseca departs for this meeting to depend only on himself to qualify for the eighth. Shakhtar have a good team, they have the quality and experience of the Champions League.
At home they are always a team with quality and although they have not won any game at home, they know that a victory in this game is enough to move on.
In the Ukrainian championship they have the 1st place controlled with good margin for the 2nd place and last weekend they won 3-0 away from home, in a victory with a lot of Brazilian touch, as usual.
Expect a Shakhtar on the edge to ensure qualification for the eighth of the Champions League.
The Lyon team are having a good comeback to this Champions League and they leave for this match in 2nd place where they only need a draw in Ukraine. If they do, they close the group in 2nd place and move on to the eighth.
Lyon had a brilliance in this qualification in which they beat Manchester City away from home. 3 unexpected points that may prove decisive in this possible qualification for the eighth.
The Lyon in this group has 4 draws, is a team that draws a lot and is a result that serves them in this encounter.
In the championship the situation has been inconsistent and come even from a home defeat with Rennes by 0-2. The positive side was that the game of the weekend was postponed and this allowed them to prepare this meeting with the utmost rigor.

I expect a very mixed encounter between these two teams playing a final. Who wins goes on and in this case is the home team that has to take the game as the draw does not suit them.
Lyon are a dangerous team, have won in Manchester City and have dangerous players in front of attack.
The team that scores, obliges the other to react and take more offensive initiative, so I expect more than 3 goals in this match.
We do not have a very high price, but given the importance of this meeting for both teams and also the financial impact of both teams guaranteeing access to the round of 16, I expect a very busy meeting, well played and with goals from part.
Prediction of the Day: Over 2.5 goals
