      Analysis: Valencia vs Olympique Lyonnais (09 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 09 2015, 00:42 »

      Valencia and Olympique Lyonnais face at Estadio de Mestalla, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage). The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Valencia presents significant differences between home and away results.

      Analysis of Valencia

      The home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 3 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Gent by (1‑0). In the last round, they have lost an away match against Zenit by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 13 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got a home tie against Barcelona by (1‑1). In the last 10 home matches Valencia has won 5, tied 4 and lost 1. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 6 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 11 home matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (46'‑60') and 3 of their 8 goals between (31'‑45').

      Despite have come to this Group H as one of the favourites to the qualifying, Valencia haven't done a great path and need to win this last round and also wait that Gent fail to win the qualified Zenit, in Belgium. 
      In contrast, the 3rd place is already reached, and in this match the coach Gary Neville will be for the first time in the Champions League, with some weaknesses. 
      Ruben Vezo is suspended, and Barragán, André Gomes, Mustafi, Negredo, Piatti and Rodrigo are all injured. Javi Fuego is also with physical problems and in doubt to this match. 

      Analysis of Lyon

      The away team is currently in the 4th position, with 1 point won, after 1 draw and 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost a home match against Zenit by (0‑2). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Gent by (1‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 12 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses at their stadium, with 15 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the Ligue 1, they got a home loss against Angers by (0‑2). In the last 10 away matches Olympique Lyonnais has won 3, tied 4 and lost 3.

      In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 losses in the last matches and they haven't won any of the last 5 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      In a Group that opened good qualifying opportunities, Lyon have been the big deception, once that they have made a bad path and come to this important gameweek without any chances to reach the round of 16. To this match, the coach Hubert Fournier won't count on Jordan Ferri, that is suspended, neither the injured Rafael, Christophe Jallet, Samuel Umtiti, Aldo Kalulu, Nabil Fekir and Gueida Fofana. 
      Despite this big list of absences, Bisevac, Malbranque and Maxime Gonalons are also in doubt to this match. 

      Betting suggestion:

      Taking into consideration the technical superiority and the necessity to win this match, it's notable the Valencia's favouritism that will also count on the home factor. 
      So, it's probable that Valencia will win this match and our bet will be the spanish victory.
