Lyon VS Hapoel Tel Aviv match analysis

Olympique de Lyon will try at their home, Stade de Gerland, finish leader of group B of Champions League against the Israeli of Hapoel Tel Aviv, last placed but still with chances to go to Europa League. This will be the last game to play and the French team is one point behind the leader, Schalke 04. To overtake the Germans, they must defeat Hapoel and wait that Schalke won win in Lisbon against Benfica. On the other side, Hapoel is two points behind the third placed, Benfica, and as Olympique is obligate to win and wait that Benfica will be defeated by Schalke. But beside what will happen on the final classification, Lyon is desperate for a win to clean their image after two consecutive defeats by clear marge against Benfica (4-3) and Schalke 04 (3-0). The team coached by Claude Puel arrive to this game with home work done on the French League. Nine undefeated games after defeating on Saturday Montpellier (1-2) and, after a disaster starting, they are now two points behind the leader. To this European game, Olympique can count agains with Diakhaté and Cissokho, who were suspended on the last French league game, among Toulalan, who is back to training sessions after a muscle injury. Yoann Gourcuff, on the other side, will miss his third game after a Achilles injury suffered on Champions League on the game against Schalke 04. Hapoël Tel Aviv faces this last game of the group phase of Champions League waiting for a miracle that gives them the passport to the Europa League. They have very few chances to get it. There are mathematical chances and they don't depend on themselves. I think Lyon will win this game for sure as even Hapoel is not believing on themselves. Lyon can win this game by a clear marge.
