Europa League / Lyon vs Ajax 12.05 [Copy Link]

Lyon: Unstable performance in the last couple of months (Recent form: L L W L W)
Lyon was lucky in the previous round of the tournament to eliminated Besiktas. They won the first leg at home with 2-1, but after a come back in the last 7 minutes and 2 mistakes from opponents defenders and keeper. Then in the second game in Turkey the opponent totally dominated on the pitch, but won only with 2-1. So the game went into extra time and penalties, where Lyon won to qualify for the semifinals. They are pretty weak away at home and we saw that in the first leg against Ajax as well, where lost with 1-4, so now their chances are not big. But at home the team is pretty good after 8 wins from the last 10 games in all competitions. Also in this period they had huge victories over  Nancy with 4-0, Dijon with 4-2, AZ Alkmaar with 7-1, Metz with 5-0, Roma with 4-2 and Toulouse with 4-0, so their chances against Ajax are still alive. Only Tolisso is injured and will miss, but all other players are available.

Ajax: Impressive performance in the last week (Recent form: W L L W W)
Ajax were also lucky to eliminate Schalke in the previous round after 2-0 win in the first leg, but 0-2 lose in the second leg. So they played extra time, where the opponent scored for 3-0 and Ajax was with 10 men, but even with 1 player less the Dutch side scored 2 goals to lose only with 2-3 and qualify for the semis. In the first semifinal were great and won easily with 4-1, while in the previous weekend made another great game against GA Eagles in Eredivisie to win with 4-0. Sinkgraven is doubt and close to return, while all other players are available, which is great news.

After all, Ajax are in form after two easy wins in the last week with 4-1 and 4-0, while Lyon are very good at home after 8 wins from the last 10 games and some of them was with 4 or more scored goals, so I expect an interesting second leg with a lot of goals.
