Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Kick-off:
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon)

The visitors have already secured their passage to the knockout stages of the competition but are not expected to be welcome with open arms when they make the trip to Parc Olympique Lyonnais to take on third-placed Lyon.

The hosts will be desperate for a win here and are likely to put up a strong fight against table-toppers Leipzig. A loss here, with results elsewhere going against them, could see them miss out on Champions League and Europa League knockout action altogether.

Expect an exciting free-flowing attacking game here in Lyon, with the hosts throwing all players forward in search of that much-needed victory.

Lyon v RB Leipzig Team News

Last time out in the league, Les Gones easily dispatched lowly Nimes 4-0, setting them up nicely for this big Champions League game in front of the home support. They overran their opponent in every single department of the pitch, clinching the three points at the end of ninety minutes.

Lyon are in a precarious situation at the moment. Sitting third on the standings, level on points with second-placed Zenit Saint Petersburg and three points clear of Benfica at the bottom of the table, it is fair to say qualification from Group G is still very much up for grabs.

They did pretty well holding Zenit to a one-all draw on home soil following up that masterclass act with a smashing drubbing of Leipzig 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

From there on, things began to go downhill for the home side, admitting defeat in their next two away games while clinching maximum points against Benfica at home in between.

Les Gones will seal a Champions League knockout stages ticket if they manage to defeat Leipzig, which will see them leapfrog the German side into first place, or if they draw and Zenit lose in Portugal. The stakes are high at the moment for the French club and the fans will be holding their breath as the action unfolds on Tuesday.

Leipzig, on the other hand, edged out Hoffenheim in a thrilling 3-1 encounter in front of the home support to keep up the pressure on league leaders Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Red Bulls want to secure first place in Group G and will head into this game, knowing that a draw or win is enough to secure their spot at the summit. Though they lost the reverse fixture against this opponent, they will head into this game with a new-found confidence following their good run of form across all competitions.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Lyon: Léo Dubois, Youssouf Kone.

RB Leipzig: Kevin Kampl, Willi Orban, Ibrahima Konaté.

Lyon vs RB Leipzig Predictions

The hosts are likely to be the more desperate side in this fixture, as they will be looking to secure a victory to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition. As such, they will be throwing men forward in search of goals.

The visitors will be happy to sit back, soak in the pressure and hit Lyon on the counter-attack. We have seen them use this tactic to perfection on numerous occasions and Tuesday might add to that list.

As goals are a given in this game, expect both sides to breach the other at least once before the end of the ninety minutes.
