This game could easily be seen as the most interesting game of the second round of the fixtures as Atalanta look to build on their impressive 3-0 win over Everton on match day 1 while Lyon look to get their first win and will be judged on how they use home advantage to their aid.

Lyon let in 3 goals in their home draw against Dijon on Saturday and their coach was understandably furious after that game as that was the third consecutive game they have failed to win and makes a win in this match very important for their hopes of reaching the knockout stage as well as boosting their morale.

Atalanta’s win over Everton is one of four wins they have enjoyed in their last 6 games.

The Italians have been in fine form as they have not lost any of their last 6 games.

They will be banking on the likes of Alejandro Gomez for another win in this game.

They scored a last gap equalizer in their last match against Fiorentina over the weekend and their fans will hope they can close the game within 90 minutes this time.
