Lyon vs Brondby
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 30 September 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
Lyon were tipped to secure the top-most spot in the group even before the competition commenced, and staying true to that prediction, they have raced to possess the first position.
Going on, they are also expected to extend their stay there, as they are pitted against possibly the weakest squad in the group – Brondby.
Lyon had a challenging opening game allotted to them, as they had to take on the Rangers – who were flourishing under new management. But the French side properly dealt with the challenge, and started their quest for the Europa trophy with a win.
In the meantime, Brondby were held to a goalless draw by Sparta Prague.
Not only has this allowed the French contingent to climb to the top of the table with a good lead, but they have the chance to increase the gap as well.
Rangers and Sparta are pitted against each other in the other fixture in the group – and at least one of the two will be dropping points.
Count on Lyon to make full use of this opportunity, and register a huge win against Brondby this Thursday.
