Match Facts & Stats

  • Beşiktaş have yet to lose (or keep a clean sheet) in five European games at new stadium (W2 D3)
  • They are the only domestic champions left in the UEFA Europa League this season
  • Lyon have only lost one of their last four European away games (W2 D1 L1)
  • Les Gones have won five out of their last six Europa League games...
  • ...but they won  only 2 of their last 10 matches away from home in all competitions
  • Beşiktaş have lost just one competitive fixture on home turf all season

A tie finely poised on a knife's edge


Beşiktaş were just less than ten minutes away from sealing a first leg win before conceding two late goals. That goes to show that oftentimes a one-goal lead is not enough, especially when playing on the road (unless if one boasts a very strong defense like Atletico Madrid or Juventus). In any case, they still do have that vital away goal in hand and will be hoping to make their strong home record count as they welcome Les Gones on Thursday evening.

However, the hosts will be missing a few key players, including Cameroonian international Vincent Aboubakar, who sits out due to suspension. He will be joined by Brazilian defender Marcelona, who also will not be able to feature due to yellow card accumulation.


Meanwhile, Lyon were involved in a bit of a ruckus over the weekend due to crowd trouble in a match against Bastia. That game ultimately was called off, which means that Les Gones will have gotten a bit of rest, albeit it will be interesting to see if that disruption will have any impact on their mental state ahead of this fixture.

It's not been the easiest of Europa League tournaments for Lyon, who faced a tough test against Roma and managed to progress despite losing the second leg, and rallied back well to score two late goals against their upcoming opponents to head into to this game with a 2-1 advantage. Rafael sits out as a result of yellow cards, whilst Memphis Depay is not eligible due to having featured for Manchester United in this same competition.
