Lyon is in the driving seat of the Champions League Group E followed by both Fiorentina and Liverpool, three points behind them. Lyon travels to Anfield Road to face their first back to back match against Liverpool. The French will not be holding back on Tuesday night as they are looking to extend their lead at the top of the Group E.

Liverpool will have to work hard for their points in order to qualify for the Champions League last 16. The Reds will have to win against Lyon if they want maintain that race for the two spots available for the last 16. Coach Rafa Benitez will be hoping to see both Captain Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres return back to the starting line up after their weekend 1-0 defeat against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Benitez also omitted Javier Mascherano from the starting line up but it is most likely the Argentinean will start against Lyon, while Albert Riera could replace Babel on Tuesday night.

Lyon are the current leaders in  group E of the Champions League. It will be the French team first time to playing in Anfield Road and the setting is set for an explosive match with Lyon looking to attack with Brazilian striker Lisandro up front. They beat both Fiorentina and Debreceni in their first two matches and could be on the verge to win the group if they beat Liverpool. Lyon lost 2-0 at home to Sochaux last weekend.

Two of the top sides in Europe will meet at ANfield for the first time and this one will be a tight affair. Liverpool will need Gerrard or Torres to return to the starting line up to be in a shout of a win at home. Lyon have nothing to lose and so they will do what they do best, attack. Liverpool will do anything to get their key players back for this match so therefore check out Betsson as they are  offering Liverpool at 1.70 for a win.
