Preview: Bayern Munich Women vs. Lyon Women - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Wednesday's Women's Champions League clash between Bayern Munich Women and Lyon Women, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Bayern Munich Women will be looking to avenge the 2-1 defeat that they suffered last week against Lyon Women in the Women's Champions League, when they welcome the French side to Munich on Wednesday.

As a result of that defeat, the hosts sit in second place with four points to their name, while Lyon will look to cement their place at the top of the group.

Bayern Munich will be looking to bounce back from consecutive defeats on Tuesday, when they welcome Lyon to the FC Bayern Campus.

After losing away to Lyon last week, Bayern Munich were on the wrong side of a 1-0 scoreline on Saturday, when they faced Wolfsburg in a top-of-the-table clash in the Frauen-Bundesliga.

Kathrin Hendrich's headed effort in the 69th minute proved enough to condemn Bayern to defeat - a result which saw Wolfsburg go top - while Bayern dropped down to third.

After taking the seven-time Champions League winners close last week, Jens Scheuer's side will be hopeful that home advantage can help them to victory, with Bayern Munich winning five of their six competitive home fixtures this season.

In those six home encounters, they netted on 23 occasions, while only conceding four goals in that period, and they will look to carry that impressive home form into Wednesday's contest.

Lyon head into Wednesday's encounter in exceptional form, having won all 13 competitive fixtures this season.

They took control of their Champions League group last week with a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich thanks to a goal apiece for Janice Cayman and Amandine Henry.

That crucial win was followed by a scintillating performance at the weekend when Lyon swept aside championship rivals Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday courtesy of a 6-1 scoreline.

Catarina Macario and Danielle van de Donk both netted in the opening period, before PSG saw Ashley Lawrence sent off, and Lyon took advantage with Melvine Malard and Damaris Egurrola netting in the early stages of the second half.

Lyon's perfect evening was completed when Ada Hegerberg scored a brace - the first time that the five-time Champions League winner has scored in 21 months due to a long injury layoff.

Team News

Sydney Lohmann is still unavailable for Bayern Munich as she continues to recover from last month's hip surgery.

After beginning the Wolfsburg clash on the bench, Lea Schuller is expected to come into the starting lineup for the hosts on Wednesday.

Hanna Glas only made a substitute appearance against Lyon in France last Wednesday, but after starting at the weekend, she is expected to keep her place in the starting lineup.

Despite coming on as a substitute to score a brace at the weekend, Hegerberg is likely to have to settle for a place on the Lyon bench on Wednesday as they continue to manage the forward's minutes after her return from injury.

Following their dominant performance at the weekend, Sonia Bompastor could name an unchanged lineup.

Bayern Munich Women possible starting lineup:
Benkarth; Glas, Wenninger, Kumagai, Simon; Zadrazil, Magull, Dallmann; Buhl, Beerensteyn, Schuller

Lyon Women possible starting lineup:
Endler; Carpenter, Buchanan, Henry, Morroni; Macario, Egurrola, Van de Donk; Cascarino, Bacha, Malard

We say: Bayern Munich Women 1-2 Lyon Women

Bayern Munich will be hoping that home advantage can help them collect a positive result from Wednesday's encounter, but given the French side's current form, it is difficult to envisage anything other than a Lyon victory.
