Barcelona vs Lyon Match Preview
Barcelona are fighting for silverware on all fronts once again this season. With arch rivals and holders Real Madrid being dumped out of the Champions League in this round by Dutch outfit Ajax, Blaugrana are now among the favourites for the top trophy in Europe’s elite tier, as well as reaching the final of the Copa Del Rey where they will face Valencia and they do look set for another La Liga title too as with 11 games left they hold a seven point lead at the top of the table.
In what was a tricky Champions League group that pitted them against Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan, Ernesto Valverde’s men faced few problems in progressing in first place and despite being held to a goalless draw in the first leg of this fixture a few weeks ago they should progress to the next round here with confidence high following three league wins in the interval between the two legs. The home win is priced at just 1/4 with Bet365.
It’s been another progressive season for Lyon as they look to retain their Champions League spot for next season with a top three finish in Ligue 1. Les Gones do currently occupy third place in the table with a three point gap over Marseille and although consistency has stopped them from challenging the juggernaut of PSG that looks set to retain the title once again, they have showed flashes of brilliance in both the league and in Europe.
Bruno Genesio’s men are actually unbeaten in their seven Champions League fixtures so far this term, but their only victory came in their shock opening matchday victory over Manchester City in the group stages. Since then, they’ve drawn six consecutive matches in this competition and although another draw here would be enough to see them through to at least Extra Time, they will be out to spring another surprise win at odds of 12/1 with BetVictor.
There may not have been any goals in the first leg of this clash but we’re expecting a more open second leg at Camp Nou. Barcelona will be expected to dominate play and with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi in their attack they should get the job done here, but Lyon will always be a threat on the counter attack through the likes of Nabil Fekir and Moussa Dembele and we can see them on the scoresheet here. Barcelona to win and both teams to score is priced at 33/20 with Coral.
That man Messi is having a phenomenal season even by his incredibly high standards so far in this campaign. The Argentinian superstar has already racked up 34 goals in all competitions, including six in the Champions League and having scored two or more in recent games against the likes of Valencia, Sevilla and Espanyol, we’re backing him to do the same in this fixture at odds of 15/8 with BetVictor
