Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
The hosts are on fire given their fine form in the league. Domestically, the German outfit has surpassed expectations. Many expected them to be a work in progress as they adapt to their new coach, Julian Nagensmann who was appointed in June, but they have defied all odds sitting second on the table only behind champions Bayern and having lost only a single game the entire season.

Their Champions League journey is as thrilling. They ran off eventual winners in match day one, beating Benfica in Lisbon. Their high tempo football coupled with swift counter-attacking play makes Leipzig a force to reckon with, domestically and in the Champions League. In front of their home supporters and given their impressive run of form, they will be out to draw first blood and prove a point on Europe’s biggest stage. Their attacking duo, Yussuf Poulsen and Timo Werner, with a combined haul of 7 goals in all competitions will definitely be out to bag more goals.

Lyon, on the other hand, come into this fixture with some doubts. Despite being in similar circumstances as Leipzig - having appointed a new manager in May - the team is yet to find rhythm. Their style of play is also similar to Leipzig’s with quick counter-attacks led by their attacking front of Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay. Unlike the hosts, the guests are struggling domestically.

Currently sitting 11th in the league, it is definitely a difficult transition period for the club and Sylvinho will be charged with motivating his boys as he seeks to fill in the shoes of his predecessor Genesio. The former manager, who is the club’s longest-serving manager, oversaw the development of young talents like Bertrand Traore and Nabil Fekir evidently left a gap in the club. History is on their side though. Lyon did not lose even a single away match in last season’s Champions League campaign and will be looking to build on that.
