LYN Vs JUV Dream 11 Prediction: LYN Vs JUV Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottering Lyon come across a stern test in the form of the mighty Juventus outfit today.
With just the one win in their last four Champions League encounter and four wins in their own home stadium all season, when Lyon take on Juventus today, they know they have a gargantuan tie staring them in the face. This is a colossal tie for the side, one where they know they need to come out unscathed if they are to have any chance of stunning Juventus and pulling off an improbable win from the double header.
The side do come into this one with some kind of momentum with their 2-0 win over Metz in Ligue 1 recently seeing them curb a four match winless spree in the league. The timing of the win couldn’t have been any better for the home side with it coming right before today’s behemoth outing, one which is bound to have instilled some kind of confidence in Ligue 1’s seventh placed Lyon.
While the issues to battle are aplenty for Lyon today, Juventus on the other hand have little qualms to cope with. Their quest towards sealing the Serie A trophy moved one step closer with the side garnering a 2-1 win over SPAL at the weekend, a result which saw them maintain their one point lead over Lazio.
Whilst Juventus have wavered off late as well, in Lyon they are up against a unit they should manage to muster up a win against. Their attacking exuberance is going to be way too much for Lyon to cope against with Juventus raking up pivotal away goals today.

Dream 11 Picks
LYN Vs JUV Dream 11 Goal-Keeper
With their being immense deliberations about which four players were ideal picks from Lyon, their shot stopper helped offer some kind of solution to the prevelant problem. In Anthony Lopes, the side has in its artillery an articulate shot stopper, a player who is endowed with an expansive skill set which has seen him show immense resolve infront of a carnage of shots.
LYN Vs JUV Dream 11 Defenders
Although this has the proposition of being a high scoring affair, the one team which can emerge from the tie with a cleansheet in its favour is Juventus. They are clearly bestowed with some wordclass defenders and given Lyon’s plight in their home stadium Juventus will be eyeing a shut down on the down.
Also, in their two fullbacks Danilo and Alex Sandro, the unit has as its disposal two defenders who love sprucing the side’s attacking sorties. And the two have thrived in Sarri’s gameplan with the manager always wanting his wide defenders to provide consistent support to the attacking players.
CBs Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Light come into our outfit as well for the contest as we opt for an entire backline from the side for this forthcoming contest.
LYN Vs JUV Dream 11 Midfielders
We are opting for a seamless blend of attack and defence from Lyon with both Lucas Tousart and Martin Terrier being indulged in by us. The two players have an innate ability to canter their way into both of the side’s gameplan and their ability to both pull off tackles and blocks along with carrying the ball from defence to attack makes them sublime value.
Elsewhere, after a goal scoring contribution in the previous encounter, Juan Cuadrado is our lone pick from Juventus in this component.
LYN Vs JUV Dream 11 Strikers
With the 21 goals and 2 assist, Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo has finally showed why he was bought for such a staggering amount. He has finally acclimatised himself at the club and in the league this season, piling on the goals with ease and with Lyon shipping goals in the Champions League, he should get atleast one today as well.
The 6 goals and 5 assists for Paola Dybala see us indulge in his services as well with the player having provided 6 goals and 5 assists this season while from Lyon we are getting in their top scorer in the form of 14 goal and 2 assist man, Moussa Dembele.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With Lyon being way too vulnerable defensively, Ronaldo will come in to captain our side while Dybala is our vice-captain.
