Recent anomalies, with respect to the Standard Model predictions, of experimental results in B-physics, in the tau and muon sectors, point towards a possible Lepton Flavor Universality (LFU) violation for the second and third generations. If confirmed it would imply New Physics beyond the Standard Model. I will show how LFU violation naturally happens in BSM theories where the hierarchy problem is solved by means of a warped extra dimension, dual to theories with a composite Higgs, and will fit the anomalies keeping agreement with all other experimental constraints.
