Where to watch Lyon vs Benfica in the UCL on November 5

November 5, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Both Lyon and Benfica will be hoping to climb into the top two spots in their group as they battle for all three points.

Preview: Lyon vs Benfica

Lyon will be keen on revenge on Benfica after the Portuguese side spoiled their solid start to their Champions League campaign on matchday three. Prior to that loss, Lyon had picked up a draw and a win from their first two games and were fancying their chances against a Benfica side who had yet to win a single game in the Champions League this season.

However, Benfica, encouraged by playing in front of their home fans, came out on top 2-1 to pick up their first three points of this campaign, and now, Lyon will be looking to get back to winning ways in order to put pressure on group leaders RB Leipzig who will be facing Russian outfit Zenit earlier on the same day. The hosts come into this game having won their last two matches in Ligue 1 and will be taking on Marseille over the weekend in a match that could possibly see them jump all the way into the European places if things go their way.

Benfica, for their part, will be hoping to do a double over Lyon for obvious reasons: to get themselves out of last spot in their group. However, they have struggled to pick up results outside of Portugal (with just three wins in their last 14 games) and although Lyon have failed to win all but one of their last ten games in this competition, the visitors could find this to be a very tough and closely contested affair against a highly motivated opponent.

Team news: Lyon vs Benfica

Lyon: Only Marcal and Martin Terrier are slight doubts for the home side, meaning that Rudi Garcia has a full-strength squad at his disposal.

Benfica: Raul de Tomas, Rafa, and Geman Conti are all out for the visitors.
