15th August 2020 – 21:00, Estadio Jose Alvalade, Lisbon
The last quarter-finals match is going to be played between Manchester City and Lyon. The English side wants to go to the very end of the competition, while the French team is searching for another surprise.
Match Preview & Team News
Manchester City failed to defend the title in the Premier League as they stayed 18 points behind Liverpool. However, Pep Guardiola’s side is in an excellent form as they celebrated six times in the last seven occasions. Gabriel Jesus and the lads have been the most productive team in the Premier League, with 102 goals scored. The Citizens put some excellent displays in the group stage of the Champions League, as they booked four victories followed by two draws. They had a very tough challenge in the eight-finals as they collided with Real Madrid, but Manchester City managed to celebrate in both legs with the same scoreline – 2:1.
Very few people believed that Lyon could reach this stage, but they are one of the biggest overachievers in this competition. Since the coronavirus pandemic hit football as well, Ligue 1 had to be paused. At that time, Lyon was not enjoying the domestic campaign as they were sitting on the 7th spot. However, Ligue 1 didn’t continue, which means that Lyon won’t have the chance to represent France in European cups next season unless they win the current edition of the Champions League. Memphis Depay and the lads were just one point ahead of Benfica and Zenit in the group stage, but they managed to eliminate Juventus in the eight-finals. The French side doesn’t have any pressure to succeed in this clash, and they may turn that into their advantage.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Manchester City has an excellent chance to get closer to the finals, and we believe they are not going to let it slip away. The English side should secure the advantage at half time.
Goals Market Prediction
