Champions League Lyon vs Shakhtar Donetsk
After winning on Manchester City (2-1), Olympique Lyonnais have surely made the biggest blow of this first day of the Champions League. Now Bruno Genésio’s men can not afford to lose points against a direct competitor for qualifying for the next round. While the Rhone club welcomes Shakhtar Donetsk, Nabil Fékir teammates arrive in top form. Indeed, OL remain on a series of five games without defeat, including a crucial victory against OM in the league (4-2). If the draw conceded at home against Nantes this weekend (1-1) can tarnish the table, this Lyon team seems to transcend during major events. Faced with a team largely ahead of the Ukrainian championship but conceded a draw against Hoffenheim during the first day (2-2), OL could win in front of its audience.
