Lyon take on the visitors Hoffenheim at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the Round 4 fixture of the UEFA Champions League Group F. The match will be played in the eponymous city Lyon on Wednesday, November 7th.
Last Ligue 1 Conforama tour Lyon failed in the defense and managed to get a draw only against Bordeaux. They conceded at least one goal in six of their last seven matches. The match where Les Gones managed to allow zero goals was against Nimes in their local league. It`s worth also noting that the team of Bruno Genesio has conceded at least once in every game they have already had in the UEFA Champions League Group F. For example, the overall amount of goals they conceded from Shakhtar and Hoffenheim was five. On the other hand, the French have been scoring at least once in almost all of their matches recently. They have had eleven games already this autumn and have scored zero goals in only one of them. That unproductive fixture for Les Gones was against Paris Saint-Germain. Furthermore, they scored two and more goals in eight of their last eleven matches. Even though the key player of the team Nabil Fekir has been absent from the squad recently Les Gones have been great in the offense anyway even without him. In their last three matches Lyon drew against Bordeaux with a 1-1 score, beat Angers with a 2-1 score and drew against Hoffenheim with a 3-3 score in their UEFA Champions League Group F fixture.

Hoffenheim have been unable to show stable performances recently because of their poor defense. They have already had fifteen games this season and have managed to concede zero goals in only one of them against Stuttgart. Quite frankly, Die Schwaben got their player removed from the field by the referee in the start of that match and that was the main reason they did not score back then. Overall, Die Kraichgauer have been showing an open playing style constantly recently, they have never tried to adjust their own playing style for their opponents. Exactly because of that the team of Julian Nagelsmann has been failing in the defense. Interestingly, the Achtzehn99 have scored at least one goal in every Bundesliga match they have had so far this season. They have even managed to score some goals against such teams as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund there. Talking about their performances in the Group F the Germans have managed to score six goals there so far. In their last game overall they managed to beat Bayer Leverkusen with a 4-1 score. In their last three matches Hoffenheim beat Bayer Leverkusen with a 4-1 score, lost to Leipzig with a 0-2 score in their 1/16-finals fixture of the DFB Pokal and beat Stuttgart with a 4-0 score.
In the Round 3 of the UEFA Champions League Group F Lyon and Hoffenheim pleased the fans with a lot of goals scored. That game ended with a very productive draw. Now Die Kraichgauer need to get three points on Wednesday in order to compete for going through to the play-offs of the tournament. On the other hand, if Les Gones win in the Round 4 they will almost guarantee themselves a spot in the play-offs in the UEFA Champions League. Thereby both teams are likely to show an open playing style on Wednesday. Last round Die Kraichgauer and Les Gones did exactly that and had 38 goal attempts overall. 14 of those 38 goal attempts were on target. The same situation is likely to happen now too. Hoffenheim and Lyon have had over 3.0 goals scored in every match they have had in the Group F so far. Thereby we should expect them to continue the streak in the game between them.
Prediction for the match: Over 3.0 goals scored.
