Barcelona – Lyon : Preview & Prediction
Barcelona, solid leader of the Liga with 6 clearances over Atletico Madrid, has won this Saturday against Rayo Vallecano (3-1) at Camp Nou a few days after a defeat against Girona (0- 1) in Supercup of Catalonia. In this Champions League, Barça will seek to return to victory after 2 draws against Tottenham at home (1-1) and Lyon in their 1 / 8th finals (0-0). The Blaugranas have 22 wins and 2 draws in their last 24 games at Camp Nou, one of the best European series at the moment. Needless to say, the task looks more than complicated for Olympique Lyonnais. Club Rhodanien, 3rd in Ligue 1, is also not at the moment because the latter posted only 2 successes in its last 5 games. The Gones were hooked in Strasbourg (2-2) this Saturday after having led the score with 2 goals in advance. This is the third trip without a win after losses to Nice (1-0) and Monaco (2-0). Victorious in City (2-1), Lyon remains on 2 draws in Hoffenheim (3-3) and Shakhtar Donetsk (1-1) but could suffer its first setback of its European season in Catalonia. Poorly in the league after its poor performance this weekend, will OL see logically his European course stop net in Spain?
Barcelona have only lost one of their last 12 outings.
Lyon is struggling right now and has 2 wins in its last 5 games.
In 7 duels against Barça, OL has never won! Historical statistic that hurts.
Lyon recorded 3 heavy losses in Catalonia in 3 attempts: 2-0, 3-0 and 5-2!
Lyon are on an incredible series of 6 draws in this Champions League.
The Catalan club has 2 wins (PSV and Inter Milan) and 1 draw (Tottenham) at Camp Nou this season in C1.
FC Barcelona should be able to sign a fourth success in as many games against Lyon at Camp Nou. Despite their offensive talent, the Gones should logically fall this time against stronger.
