Olympique Lyon take on Brondby in their Europa League group stage fixture on Thursday at Brøndby Stadion.

Lyon have a 100% record in the competition, the only team to maintain a winning record after four games, while Brondby are winless in their four outings.

Lyon are already assured of a place in the round of 16. Meanwhile, Brondby's hopes of making it into the playoffs for the knockout round or a place in the Europa Conference League rest on the outcome of the game between Rangers and Sparta Prague.

While this game is a mere formality for the Ligue 1 side, they have not fared well in their league games and a win here would go a long way in helping them retain some form in the league as well.

Brondby vs Olympique Lyon Prediction

Lyon's game against Marseille was abandoned as Dimitri Payet was hit in the head with a water bottle, so they should be better-rested than the hosts here.

Drengene fra Vestegnen have scored just one goal in the competition and are expected to struggle against Les Gones. A clean sheet and routine win for Lyon is the most likely outcome from the game.

Prediction: Brondby 0-2 Olympique Lyon
