Match Preview

CSKA Moscow were winners of this competition (as the UEFA Cup) back in 2005. If they are to repeat such heroics, they must get a good result in this Europa League (EL) round-of-16 first-leg fixture, which surprisingly marks the first-ever meeting between these two sides in a European competition.
After six home games against French sides in European competitions, CSKA Moscow have a balanced home record of: W2, D2, L2.
Lyon have played against three Russian sides in their history. They have never won a single away fixture in Russia, however, returning a record of: D2, L1.
CSKA got here by knocking out FK Crvena Zvezda in the round-of-32. Currently in a disappointing fifth place in the Russian Premier League standings, Viktor Goncharenko’s men come into this game after a 1-0 home win over Ural, last Saturday.
In the EL round-of-32, Lyon stamped their authority by beating Villarreal (3-1; 0-1). Though fourth place in the Ligue 1 standings, Bruno Génésio and his team have not won any of their last six games (W0, D3, L3).
Players to watch: CSKA Moscow’s best player so far has been Vitinho who has seven goals and three assists in the league. The 24-year-old Brazilian has been directly involved in a third of his team’s 29 goals in the Premier League.
Vitinho will go head-to-head with 24-year-old Dominican striker Mariano Diaz who has 16 goals and three assists in Ligue 1. He is in fine form at present, scoring Lyon’s last two goals.
Stat attack: CSKA Moscow have seen less than 2.5 goals (total) scored in eight of their last nine fixtures in the EL. In all competitions, they are still undefeated in 2018 (W2, D1, L0).
Lyon have scored at least one goal in 11 of their last 12 away matches in the EL. Moreover, they have won five of their last six EL matches.
