RB Leipzig did a great job in the Champions League opener, when they beat Benfica on the road. They will now look for their first ever set of back to back wins when they will host Lyon on Wednesday. Lyon fought harder than they though against Zenit, where the two teams eventually settled for a goal draw.

Total: 3 Goals
RB Leipzig were really effective in their away match against Benfica in the premiere. They were really good in the first half but took the lead at the 69th minute with Werner. It was the same player that doubled his team’s lead at the 78th minute before Benfica scored at the 84th for the final 2-1. That was the third win in the competition in seven matches. RB Leipzig have been really great as hosts in European matches, winning seven of their 12 home matches so far (7-3-2). One of those wins came against a French side, a 0-1 at home against Marseille. But Leipzig lost the second leg by a harsh 2-5 and eventually bowed out in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
On the other hand, Lyon are coming off a 1-1 draw at home against Russian side Zenit. Their opponents took the lead at the end of the first half, but Depay pulled even with a penalty kick at the 50th minute. Lyon were better in that match but could not do anything more. The two teams settled for a draw and a point each. That was the fifth consecutive draw for Lyon in the Champions League. Lyon have been great in international competitions, losing just two of their last 13 (4-2-7). And when it comes to matches on the road, they have lost just two of their last nine (4-2-3). However, they are without a win in their last four visits to Germany (0-2-2), where their overall record stands at 4-7-3.
Lyon have looked pretty mediocre lately, as they have not won any of their last seven matches in all competitions. RB Leipzig are really strong, especially at home, and clearly have the upper hand here. But they have not kept a single clean sheet at home so far and Lyon have the quality to score. Taking the Over 3 Goals here.
