Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Lyon will be trying to get their third straight win in the Europe Leaguewhen they travel to the Czech Republic to face themselves Sparta Prague on Thursday evening.

Ligue 1 is currently at the top of Group A, two points ahead of Iron Sparta, who have taken four points from their first two games.


Prediction for this match

Sparta Prague extended their unbeaten streak across all competitions to seven games when they beat FK Pardubice 4-2 away last weekend.

A semi-final of Martin Minchev as well as strikes by Tomas Wiesner and Jakob Pesek helped Iron Sparta to their eighth Czech first division win of the season.

With this result they are four points behind leaders Viktoria Pilsen, who were the only team to beat Pavel VrbaMen’s men in every competition so far this campaign, won 3-2 in mid-September.

Sparta Prague face Lyon on Thursday after losing each of their last four games against French opponents in European competition.

Iron Sparta have also failed to beat Lyon in their four previous attempts and suffered three defeats before they drew 1-1 on home soil in their last encounter in 2012 in the Europa League group stage.

Vrba’s men will be keen to claim something out of Thursday’s game as they aim to reach the knockout round for the first time since 2015-16.

After a sluggish start in Ligue 1, Lyon have since played a series of four league games without defeat, including the 2-0 home win against Monaco last weekend.

Karl Toko EkambiThe 75th-minute penalty broke the deadlock before Jason Denayer added a second in stoppage time to seal all three points Peter Bosz‘s men.

Les Gones have moved up to sixth place in the French top flight and are just two points behind the towering Lens in second place, which they face in a little over a week.

Lyon are one of the front runners among bookies to win this year’s Europa League and have demonstrated their eligibility to win the Cup after beating Rangers and Brondby 5-0 in their first two games.

Bosz’s side have won each of their last three Europa League away games and will be strong favorites on Thursday to take another three points against a Sparta Prague side they have never beaten.

Star striker from Sparta Prague Luke Julis remains unavailable with a groin injury, so Minchev is expected to compete again, with Adam Hlozek play in the back.

The hosts will also be without Ladislav Krejci (Blood clots in the lungs) and Casper Hojer (Calf) while Dominik Holec is doubtful with a knock.

Winger Pesek and Lukas Haraslin started in the first two group matches and will likely keep their places in the first XI on Thursday.

As for Lyon, Moussa Dembele (Calf), Islam Slimani (Muscle), Lenny Pintor (Knee) and Jeff Reine-Adelaide (Knees) everyone with injuries stays outside.

goalkeeper Anthony Lopes was suspended for beating Monaco domestically, but is expected to be at the expense of Julian Pollersbeck.

Lucas Paqueta started the league game on the bench last weekend after returning from the international game late, but the Brazilian should be in the running to start before the start Rayan Cherki, and will likely play a role alongside in advanced midfield Houssem Aouar and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Sparta Prague possible starting line-up:
Nita; Wiesner, Panak, Stetina, Hancko; Sacek, Pavelka, Soucek; Moberg Karlsson, Hlozek, Pesek

Lyon possible starting line-up:
Lopes; Dubois, Boateng, Diomande, Emerson; Caqueret, Guimarães; Shaqiri, Aouar, Paqueta; Toko Ekambi

Probability: Sparta Prague 0-2 Lyon

A hard-fought battle will be played on Thursday between two teams that have not yet conceded a goal in Group A, although Lyon are the favorites to win the Generali Arena.

The French should be strong enough to secure another win that would bring them five points ahead of the summit after just three games.
