Manchester City v Lyon Tips - Gabriel Jesus to score and win

Manchester City are in incredible form coming into this fixture after winning eight of their last 10 games including a victory over Spanish giants Real Madrid, a substantial boost for them. On the other hand, Lyon, despite not being in as good of a form as City, look like a tough side to beat especially after they took PSG to penalties and beat Juventus on aggregate. Which mean’t the french side progressed into the quarter-finals.

With talisman, Sergio Aguero ruled out till the end of August, City have had to rely on Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus. The former Palmeiras player has not seen much football this season before the Argentine’s injury in June and, therefore, took a while to get going as he went four games without a goal. In his last seven matches, Jesus found the back of the net, five times including one in his last appearance against Madrid.

City come into this fixture in significantly better form and with Jesus now becoming more efficient in front of goal, the Brazilian should be in a good position to secure this outcome. Pep Guardiola’s striker is at 7/5 odds to score and win.
