MCI vs LYN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Lyon host Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League group stage match at Groupama Stadium, in Lyon, tomorrow on Tuesday night (IST).
When the teams for the Champions League group stages were announced, Lyon were quite lucky to be drawn in Group F. The fact that they avoided some more difficult groups and had only Manchester City to concern with, they were always backed to finish at 2nd in this group,
Also, after their magnificent 1-2 win on opening day against the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium, nobody thought that the Ligue 1 giants may even be in danger of not getting a passage to the knockout stage.
At this moment, the Les Gones are 2nd int he group with six points, just three points adrift of leaders City. Hoffenheim are 3rd with three points and will be playing at home against Shakhtar Donetsk.
So as the form both the teams and if we think within the realms of sanity, Lyon may find themselves on 3rd after the end of this round and will be in danger to secure a place in the last-16 of Europe’s showpiece event.
Pep Guardiola had to watch from the stand when his team lost 1-2 against Lyon, also becoming the first side from England to lose their four consecutive matches in Europe. As much as the negative result garnered the headlines, it was also the crowd at the Etihad Stadium which grabbed the attention.
There was a continuous booing at the start of the match, directed towards the UEFA Champions League anthem. And a sparse crowd present that day to watch team’s match against Lyon, only highlighted the notion that City fans just don’t buy the Champions League nights.
But Pep Guardiola mentioned quite a few times in his press conferences that Man City needs to win the UEFA Champions League to feel more comfortable in this competition.
They are top of the group at the moment and need only a draw from the trip to France to confirm their qualification to the knockout stage. Once again, Pep will be aiming to go deep into the tournament.

MCI vs LYN Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Kyle Walker is one of the best right-back in the world, while Stones is a solid CB. Marcelo has been quite consistent for Lyon.
The midfield is talented – Fekir and Aouar, the best of the lot in Lyon at the moment. While Sterling and Silva can pop with goals or assists at any moment. Meanwhile, Fernandiho provides a good option as a defensive mid.
Depay is in red hot from these days, while Aguero is a master which will be leading our team.
The attack remains same, but the midfield will see three Lyon players with Ndombele coming in as the 3rd one. Leroy Sane was at his devastating best against West Ham and we expect him to be on the front foot in this game as well.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
We are not expecting a repeat of the result on the opening day of this competition, and are backing Manchester City to win the match.
