APOEL Nicosia Vs. Olympique Lyonnais, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

APOEL Nicosia are fielding a slightly more attacking lineup than expected, though it's merely in subtle personnel changes. Esteban Solari starts up top, and he is more of a true striker than regular starter Ivan Trickovski. In a slightly surprising move, William and Olivera both start at the back while Kaka is benched. Lyon have opted to bench Bafetimbi Gomis for Ederson, which likely means that Lisandro Lopez will play as a true center forward instead of in the hole. Here are the lineups.

APOEL Nicosia Lineup (4-4-2): Chiotis; William, Olivera, Paulo Jorge, Poursaiditidis; Manduca, Nuno Morais, Heider Sousa, Charalambides; Ailton, Solari

Olympique Lyonnais Lineup (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Cissokho, Cris, Kone, Reveilliere; Kallstrom, Gonalons; Bastos, Ederson, Briand; Lisandro

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 8:45 p.m. local time from Nicosia, Cyprus. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer Plus in the USA, Sportsnet World in Canada and Sky Sports 1 in the UK.
