One of the matches scheduled this Tuesday in Champions League will put face to face Lyon and Barcelona at 20:00, UK time. There is no doubt that the visitors are in a better shape so we are expected to see them winning.
The hosts are on the third position after 25 games in Ligue 1, gaining 46 points. Lyon recorded just one loss in the last 9 games in all competitions, winning 6 of them. Their last 2 home games have been victories, 2-1 vs PSG and 2-1 againt Guingamp. In the last 12 games, the players didn’t manage to score more than 2 goals per match. The hosts will play with Depay, Dembele and Traore in attack and we will see a 4 - 3 - 3 formation. Rafael and Gouiri are injured and Fekir is suspended, so they will be the missing players tonight.
The visitors are leading the table in La Liga with 54 points, having the best attack so far, scoring 61 goals din 25 games played. The team is without a defeat in the last 6 matches, winning 3 of them. In just one game of the last 5 Barcelona have scored over 2 goals, 6-1 against Sevilla. What is more, Barca have won 3 of the last 5 meetings against Lyon in Champions League, ticking 2 more draws. Barca will play with a 4 - 3 - 3 formation, Ronaldo, Messi and Suarez being the main strikers. Due to the injuries, Arthur, Rafinha and Cillessen will be out.
