In order to ensure their qualification to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, the French team of Olympique Lyon jumps to the gramophone of Groupama Stadium in Decines-Charpieu to face the Russian squad of CSKA Moscow in the round of the round of 16 final of the League of Europe.
Those led by Bruno Génésio were left with the victory in the first leg by 0-1 thanks to a goal by Marcelo, in what is a triumph that allowed them to break the three-game streak without knowing of victories and this was reflected in the last weekend when they beat Caen by the same score in the corresponding game for Ligue 1 that allow him to follow closely Marseille in that fight to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
For this game Génésio still can not count on his maximum figure as Nabil Fekir has not yet recovered from his injury.
In the meantime, those led by Viktor Goncharenko have a very complicated scenario as they have to turn that 1-0 defeat of the first leg and have to do it in a complicated scenario like Groupama Stadium where Lyon has only fallen in two games throughout the season.
The Russian side is motivated after their 0-3 triumph on their visit to Terek Grozny and hopes to repeat it in France; although in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League their best results were away from home, winning teams like Benfica and Basel both by a score of 1-2, this was not reflected in the UEFA Europa League where in the previous series they did not Step of the tie to zero goals in its visit to Red Star of Belgrade and it is understood because CSKA leaves a long stay without official games and the lack of rhythm plays against in this type of competitions.
