Lyon look like doomed against Barcelona, and in the first leg, the bookmakers don’t give many chances of the French team. In the autumn, The Kids showed that could fight against teams that are full of starts, which is undoubtedly Manchester City. Lyon didn’t lose once in the group stage of the competition, while in the two games against The Citizens, they took four points. The current form of The Kids is fantastic, as the team recorded six wins and lost in the recent weeks against Nice.

As expected, Barcelona didn’t have problems and took the first place in Group B and left behind them Tottenham, Inter and PSV. Blaugrana also didn’t lose over the autumn, while the draws were recorded against the English and Italian team. The attack of Barcelona looks like it had slight problems in February. In four games were scored just four goals, which helped for three draws and one minimal success with 1-0 against Valladolid on Saturday.

Undoubtedly, Barcelona have more quality, but if Messi doesn’t have a day, this will result in an ineffective attack. The players of Lyon have some class and good chemistry. As a host and outsider in the first game, The Kids will play motivated and at the limit of their capabilities in search of a good result. Barcelona are not as confident as guests in Europe, and we think that they will stumble in France.
