Lyon Vs Ajax Live Online Commentary
Lyon head coach Bruno Genesio will have some boost ahead of this match, as his star forward Alexandre Lacazette is back in the team after skipping the first leg. The Lions will come in the match in good spirits after scoring five goals in back-to-back wins in Ligue 1. Lyon definitely have the capacity of producing such a comeback and netting three or four goals, but the main question is whether they will be able to keep their net untouched as the defense is by far the weaker part of the team. As regards Lyon team news: defensive duo Maciej Rybus and Emanuel Mammana will be sideline for this match.
Meanwhile, the Dutch team had a similar advantage in the quarterfinal tie with Schalke 04, but they were on the brink of getting eliminated after a poor display in the second leg at VELTINS-Arena. Ajax’s Head coach Peter Bosz prefers attacking style and we could easily see Ajax on the scoresheet against the vulnerable defense of Lyon’s in the second leg as well. Ajax are also back in the title race in Eredivisie with a convincing 4–0 victory over the celler-dwellers side Go Ahead Eagles this weekend. As for visitors injury news: left back Daley Sinkgraven is the only absentee for Ajax.
