Event details: Lyon vs Benfica

DATE: Tuesday, 5 November 2019

TIME: Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET

UEFA Champions League

VENUE: Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
Benfica, despite their top performances in recent match-days, is placed at the bottom of the table in Group G. They will need to skillfully wade through these remaining three fixtures if they harbor any hope of qualification. The fact that they are on the road might prove to be an obstacle, but the confidence of defeating this same opponent in the last match-day in the competition will give them the confidence to go after the three points.

Hosts Lyon could make use of this desperation of the visitors, and try and improve their standing. The other game in the group is between toppers Leipzig and Zenit, and this presents an opportunity for the French outfit to make up for lost time.
