Lyon To Cause Sevilla Problems
All Sevilla did was defend against Juventus and the onus to attack at home could leave them vulnerable to the counter.
Sevilla pulled off a great draw in Turin during the first round of fixtures but don’t be fooled by the result, Seville only did one thing – defend.

Seville were outshot 16-3 by Juventus and although the Italians were short of premium chances they did enough to win, whilst the visitors offered precious little going forward.
The Spaniards will be expected to come out of their shell at home but this plays to Lyon’s strengths because they like to a counter attack.
Lyon spoiled Gary Neville’s debut by winning in Valencia last season and although a trip to the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán is tougher they have the ability to cause an upset at 17/4.
