Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Roma have lost three of their last four matches in all competitions and their surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Napoli at the weekend would have knocked confidence.

Lyon, on the contrary, have been scoring goals for fun of late. They have scored 25 goals in their last five matches in all competitions, although they were held 1-1 by Bordeaux at the weekend.

This is an evenly poised fixture which could be hinge on the performances of Alexandre Lacazette for Lyon or Edin Dzeko for Roma.
