Lyon and Sevilla face the final battle for qualification in Group H, they clash on Wednesday with victory being the only option for Lyon. Sevilla won the reverse fixture 1-0, and they would qualify even if they lose 2-1 at Lyon since they have a three-point advantage over the French side. Apart from that match, the only previous meeting between the two sides was a friendly in 2014, which ended 0-0.
This is the match of the season so far for Lyon, they have to beat Sevilla by two goals to qualify, there's no other option. They had a good warm-up last week with a 6-0 victory at Nantes in Ligue 1, but they are still sixth in the league table. Qualifying for the Champions League knockout phase would mean a huge boost for the team, but beating Sevilla is no easy task. Goalkeeper Anthony Lopes is a doubt for this match after being hit by a firecracker thrown from the stands last weekend.
Sevilla will be looking to bounce back from a surprising 2-1 defeat at Granada in LaLiga last week, they need to qualify in order to get things back on track. They could still finish top of the group, but they would need Dinamo Zagreb to avoid defeat against Juventus. Franco Vazquez is suspended for this match, while Samir Nasri and Daniel Carrico are fitness doubts ahead of the game.
Lyon: Gorgelin - Rafael, Yanga-Mbiwa, Diakhaby, Morel - Darder, Gonalons, Tolisso - Ghezzal, Lacazette, Valbuena
Sevilla: Rico - Rami, Pareja, Mercado - Mariano, Iborra, N'Zonzi, Kranevitter, Escudero - Vitolo - Vietto
My prediction: Sevilla to win 2-1.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Lyon win - 2.50
Draw - 3.40
Sevilla win - 3.00

After three straight Uefa League cups won it was a weird way for Sevilla to give away the right to defende it by qualifying for the Champions League knock-out stage and I'm sure they're glad but it's just a strange way to loose it.
So this is the news UEFA Europa League will have a new holder this season after 3 straight wins from the Spanish team.
