As we look at Man City vs Lyon Prediction, Man City play host to Lyon at the Etihad Stadium.
In the Premier League last weekend, City beat Fulham 3-0 with goals from Leroy Sane, David Silva and Raheem Sterling. City are unbeaten this season.
Against Lyon, Josep Guardiola may not be able to play two key players, namely striker Sergio Aguero and left-back Benjamin Mendy. Aguero suffered an injury when he won over Fulham, while Mendy has not fully recovered, and Guardiola is unlikely to take risks by forcing both of them to play later.
Aguero's position will be filled by Gabriel Jesus . The Brazilian striker has scored just one goal this season, but he will get a chance to play.
Their opponents have made a slow start to the season as they have won twice, drawn once and lost twice.
Last weekend, Lyon drew 2-2 against Caen who played with nine players.
Even so, Lyon have a pretty good record against English clubs. In their last six matches against English clubs, home and away, Lyon have only lost once (6 wins, 2 draw, 1 defeat)
