Tournament: Champions League. 1/8 final.
Lyon, France will host Barcelona in frames of the 1/8final match.
The team of Bruno Bruno Génésio is spending quite good season but the chances to dictate the rules for the fight in the championship of France have been lost already, but recently Les tisseurs have made a miracle – they have won over PSG though they have missed the first goal.
And at the very beginning of the group stage of the Champions League Lyon has managed to win over Manchester City.
This win was gained not on Etihad Stadium and it was able to pass the preliminary round without defeat, having gained one win and 5 draws.
Barcelona has passed very confidently the group stage of the Champions League despite difficult group (PSV Eindhoven Holland, Inter Milan and Tottenham London). Also the Catalans are the leaders in La Liga though sometimes they experience problems.
The problems resemble the mistakes that have been made in the games against Leganes or Levante when Blaugrana has suddenly lost. Though, it doesn’t happen often.
In this match both teams have to work hard in attack. Barca rarely leaves the field without scored goal.
Last time this happened in frames of the Copa del Rey against Sevilla (0:2) and before this – in frames of the ¼ final of the Champions League in April 2108 in the match against Roma (0:3) and were scoring the goals during 41 matches.
Lyon can’t, of course, be proud of such results but is able to make Catalans work hard in defense. Attacking trio Depay, Fekir and Dembélé can’t break any defense line.
Our tip: Lion Asian Handicap + 1 – odds 1.69
