Lyon vs Tottenham Preview:

Date: February 21, 2013; Time:  6:00 PM UTC;

Venue: Stade de Gerland — Lyon.

Spurs will aim to safeguard first-leg advantage at Stade de Gerland. Two goals from Gareth Bale at White Hart Lane gave Andre Villas-Boas’ team a slight lead, but Lyon have an expensive away goal ahead of home match.

Tottenham has a lead into the second leg of this match thanks to the left foot of Gareth Bale. Both sides played a very strong game in the first leg. Lyon scored thanks to a goal from Samuel Umtiti. Both managers have a main goal to win this tournament this season.

Lyon goes 2nd in Ligue 1 table with 48 points from 25 games. They are 3 points behind the leaders PSG. Their current form has seen two wins and three defeats from last five games. But, Lyon showed great game at the weekend, thrashing Bordeaux 4-0. Last five home games Les Gones have finished with two wins, two draws and one defeat. Lyon have won their last 4 European home matches, winning all three of their Europa League group stage games at the Stade de Gerland.

Tottenham stands 4th in the EPL table with 48 points from 26 games. Their present form has seen one loss, one draw and three wins from last five games. Last five away matches the Spurs have finished with two wins, two draws and one defeat. Tottenham are unbeaten in Europe this season after seven games. They have four wins and three draws. Gareth Bale’s two goals from free kicks helped to get a home victory over Lyon in the first leg. Emmanuel Adebayor played for seven years in France in Metz and Monaco. In his 6 games against Lyon, he hasn’t made a single goal or assist.


Lyon manager Remi Garde has no new injury worries ahead of this second-leg game with Tottenham. Yoann Gourcuff has a hamstring injury and still remains sidelined. Steed Malbranque was replaced by Clement Grenier and scored two goals in Lyon’s 4-0 win over Bordeaux, so he could start from the first minutes against Spurs.

Tottenham will play without their top forward Jermain Defoe and Younes Kaboul due to injuries. Tom Huddlestone has a knee problem and is doubtful for this match. Sandro is out for the rest of the season, so Scott Parker and Mousa Dembele probably will continue in midfield. Andre Villas-Boas usually rotates his goalkeepers in Europe. So it means that Brad Friedel will start in goal. Ex-Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be on the bench against his former club.
