Schalke, Lyon vie for top spot

Tuesday, 23rd November 2010 9:57pm
Three teams in the UEFA Champions League Group B can still make the knockout stages and Schalke and Lyon meet in a match where a loss could be very damaging.

At the moment Lyon leads group B with nine points having lost to Benfica in round 4 and Schalke are just two points behind.

In the reverse of this one, Schalke lost to the former French champions and this could the team's chance to avenge that defeat.

Both teams started their domestic competitions poorly but have been doing cruising well in the Champions League especially Lyon but a win here will be crucial.

A win for Lyon will almost guarantee them a place in the last 16 with just one more match to go and for Schalke a win will make sure they peg back Lyon and increase their chance of also reaching the knockout stages.

The other team in contention in the group is Benfica and it plays bottom placed Hapoel Tel Aviv, a match Benfica is likely to win.

Benfica and Schalke play each other in the last round of the group matches in what could be a shootout for a place in the knockout phase.

Here is the head-to-head for the two teams in this year's competition:
