A win for Lyon will see them through to the knock-out phase. They are playing at home and they match well against their German opponents. They arguably played their best game in this competition when they beat RB Leipzig back in September.
Leipzig is, however, a very different team than they were in September. They are on an 8 game unbeaten streak and have been in fine form. Lyon, on the other hand, hasn’t really found a consistent style of play this season and has struggled to find form in away games.
Lyon will welcome playing at home. Their star forward Memphis Depay has found fine form at home this season. Leipzig will employ man-marking or isolating Depay but that will open up spaces for Moussa Dembele and the versatile Houssem Aouar.
Their defensive leader Leo Dubois will be a huge loss for Lyon and might prove to be a tipping point in this game. Jason Deneyer and Fernando Marcal have been inconsistent at the back this season. The absence of Dubois from this game takes away much-needed stability to shaky defense.
Leipzig is in fine form recently. In the Bundesliga, they are a point behind first-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. Their 32-year-old manager Julian Nagelsmann has put together a side that is playing attractive free-flowing football.
Nagelsmann will likely line his team up in a 4-5-1 formation. Their lone striker Timo Werner has been in excellent goal-scoring form this season. Werner, however, hasn’t scored a goal in the champions’ league since their opening game against Benfica.
Their midfield aggression and ability to win the ball has however been one of the main reasons Leipzig has found a lot of success this season. Emil Forsberg, Marcel Sabitzer, and rising young star Christopher Nkunku provide a great deal of aggression. Their ball-winning capabilities have provided Werner with lots of goal scoring opportunities.
Lyon will be focussing on limiting Werner for obvious reasons but that will open goal scoring chances for Forsberg, Sabitzer, and Nkunku. Possession will be a key area of contestation in this game.
