As with all of our Champions League predictions, our experts have analysed the stats, facts and figures ahead of Saturday’s quarter final in Lisbon. This match is far from being a staple fixture in the competition, however that won’t affect the quality of our Champions League tips.

The current constitution

Manchester CityCity searching for their 1st European Crown

Despite a disappointing domestic campaign by their standards, City are undefeated in Europe this season, having won 4 and drawn 2 of their group matches before dispatching Real Madrid 2-1 in both legs of the last round. With their form and a favourable one legged tie against one of the weaker teams left in the competition, this surely looks to be the best chance yet that the Citizens have of finally tasting European success. However, Pep Guardiola will be all too aware that his side have crashed out of the competition at this stage in each of the last 3 seasons.

LyonAre Lyon the Dark Horses?

Lyon pulled off a shock to get here, and defied most expert Champions League predictions by scraping past Juventus on away goals following a 2-1 loss in Turin. Les Gones have their defensive organisation to thank for their progress in the Champions League this season, but keeping out City’s formidable attack at bay for a minimum of 90 minutes is a huge ask that will require serious energy levels. With the forwards constantly being required to track back, a smash and grab approach will be required for Lyon to find the net on Saturday.

Head to Head

These two sides have only met twice before in this competition, in the group stages last season. Surprisingly, Lyon are undefeated against City, having won their away tie and drawn at home to Pep Guariola’s side. Of the 4 Lyon goals scored over the 2 games, 3 belong to Ivorian midfielder Maxwel Cornet, so Les Gones will be hoping he can keep up his good record against City. Rudi Garcia perhaps has another ace up his sleeve in the form of Moussa Dembélé who terrorised Man City’s defence and bagged a brace when playing for Celtic back in 2016.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having analysed all of the above information and each side’s form, our Champions League prediction for this match is for City to eventually come out on top.

Manchester CityManchester City to Edge it

Lyon were impressive in last season’s encounters with Man City. Additionally, they were well organised when keeping Juventus at bay in the last round. However, as a unit, Pep Guardiola’s side have more attacking prowess than Juventus, which should ultimately prove too much for Lyon to handle. Moreover, with this being a one legged tie, they don’t have away goals to help them through this time.

Prior to their 2-1 defeat against Juventus, Lyon’s previous competitive outing was the Coupe de la Ligue final against PSG, which ended in a 0-0 draw, with Lyon losing on penalties. Lyon have proven to be good at making stronger opposition wait in recent games, meanwhile City have been drawing at half time in their last 4 Champions League matches. With this in mind our betting tip for this match is a draw at half time with City going on to win which you can place with Bet365 at odds of 3.6
