Onto Group F and Lyon take on Manchester City at the Groupama Stadium as the betting tips continue in the Champions League this Tuesday night.

Lyon come into this match still unbeaten during the group stages with one win and three draws with the victory coming against tonight’s opponents Manchester City 2-1 away from home, along with stalemates with Shakhtar Donetsk and home and away with Hoffenheim.

The hosts know they need to pull off another win over Manchester City here to draw level on points with the group leaders, but they’d have the head-to-head advantage over City going into match day 6.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves; Lyon have captured just one home win from their last nine Champions League ties on home turf which was a 3-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb two seasons ago. But five defeats and three draws within this nine match sequence doesn’t convince me that Lyon can win here.

Onto Manchester City and the visitors know that a draw in Lyon on Tuesday night would see them progress through to the knock-out rounds of the Champions League as Pep Guardiola’s side continue to justify their favourites tag of lifting the Champions League crown this season.

Manchester City have also won their last eight matches on the bounce in all competitions while their unbeaten run has extended to 13 matches with a resounding 4-0 romp over West Ham in the Premier League on the weekend.

After their opening loss to Lyon 2-1 at home on match day 1, City have clicked into gear with three wins on the trot in Group H with victories over Hoffenheim 2-1 away along with home and away wins against Shakhtar Donetsk (3-0 away and a 6-0 home win).

Away from home, City have won five of their last nine on the road in the Champions League with 8 of these 9 resulting in over 2.5 goals.

To just back over 2.5 goals here or indeed a Manchester City win, the odds are extremely slim, so my betting tips advise a combination of a City win and over 2.5 goals at a good price here.
