Barcelona to shoot down high-flying Lyon

botchway March 13, 2019

After a goalless first leg at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, this tie is in the balance. Neither side has lost a match in this season’s competition so far.
A third treble in 10 years for Barcelona looks on. They’re also in the Copa del Rey final where they will be big favourites to beat Valencia in May. That just leaves the Champions League.
Draws have been Lyon’s speciality in the Champions League this season; 6 of their 7 games have ended all square.
In domestic football, Les Gones are third in Ligue 1 after a 2-2 draw at Strasbourg on Saturday.
They also have a Coupe de France semi-final against Stade Rennais to look forward to as they target silverware for the first time since 2012.
But they’d love to cause a shock in Europe. They reached the semi-finals in 2010 and that remains their best run in the competition.
They’re big outsiders but can they defeat the 5-time champions of Europe? Credit: 101greatgoals.com
