Barcelona vs Lyon Prediction & Betting tips
There are always people who claim that the Champions League is getting more and more boring, because the same clubs are always in front. The three-time title win of Real Madrid has of course confirmed this suspicion recently, but the current game round is so far the perfect advertisement for the competition. A week ago, there were spectacular, exciting and high-class games to watch and also two very big surprises. Among other things, the just-mentioned defending champion has stumbled and after an away win in the first leg at home yet flown from the premier class. The young savages of Ajax Amsterdam dissected the Royal at 4: 1 in Bernabeu into their individual parts. At least as great was the surprise at the end of another top favorite. Paris St. Germain. The cloth-Eleven playful first time ever in European history a 2: 0 away win against Manchester United and the Red Devils ensured with this magical night for one of the most memorable comebacks in recent years. In addition, there was the loss of BVB against Tottenham and the victory of FC Porto after extra time and video referee drama against AS Roma.
Currently, it is hard to imagine that this week with the four remaining knockout stages still an increase is possible. The encounters and starting points still leave a lot of room for drama. Both in the duel Bayern vs.. Liverpool, as well as between Barca and Lyon, the teams go with a zero number in the second leg. Juventus want to turn a 2-0 reverse over Atletico Madrid and Schalke 04 from a German perspective for a miracle at Manchester City worry. At all games, but especially at the Barcelona vs. Barcelona match. Lyon, a forecast is incredibly difficult. Of course, the Catalans are the big favorite at home in Camp Nou. However, Messi and Co. logically get the much lower odds. It is also important to assess the course of the game properly, in order to finally find the perfect recommendation for this game. At 20:00 on Wednesday evening, the kick-off.
Almost perfect runs the previous season of FC Barcelona. After rivals Real Madrid have in recent years, especially with the three-time winning the Champions League, the Catalans cut the cutting, Barca fought back this year’s supremacy in Spain. At least after the two successes in the “double Clasico” are clear conditions. First, Messi and Co. humiliated the capital club in the semifinals of the Copa del Rey (3: 0), before a few days later followed the victory in the league. Thus, the championship is almost decided in favor of FC Barcelona. The team of coach Ernesto Valverde continues to dance at all three weddings and wants to do so after Wednesday. A 0-0 away is a deceptive result. Any other draw would mean the end for the Iberians. Therefore, Barca will try to put pressure on the home side from the first minute on, to provide an early lead for calm.
The entire preparation of the last days and weeks aimed at the game against Lyon. Ivan Rakitic and Ousman Dembele were spared on the weekend and will be back on Wednesday. Whether Dembele will be allowed to play next to Messi and Suarez, or if Philippe Coutinho will first be given preference, the coach will decide on his gut feeling. The remainder of the team, especially the defensive team surrounding German goalkeeper Marc Andre ter Stegen, is set and in some ways untouchable. The 0: 0 except in France, the FCB has won its last five games all. At home in Camp Nou there was the last defeat in early November. Everything speaks for the hosts, who can only beat themselves. Between Barcelona and Lyon, the odds for a tip on the hosts despite the many surprises in the last week rightly so clearly distributed and the guests need an absolute Sahnetag, if they want to overthrow the big favorites.
Olympique Lyon works meticulously on the required Sahnetag. Similar to the opponent from Spain, the upcoming duel in the premier class had already influence on the league operation. Although Olympique, ranked third, can use every point in the fight for the Champions League, coach Bruno Genesio took a point point loss on Sunday at Racing Strasbourg to spare some of his stars. Memphis Depay sat on the bench for 90 minutes, as did Tanguy Ndomobele. Superstar Nabil Fekir came into play only in the second half. Moussa Dembele did his double, but did not win twice in the 2-2 draw. However, the attacker himself confirmed his good form, has now scored four goals in the last two games and is well placed in Barcelona. The tactical formation of the guests, who usually play in an attacking 4-3-3 in the league, is eagerly awaited. In the first leg against Barcelona 4-5-1 the focus was placed much more on the defensive.
However, whether the bulwark can last for more than 90 minutes is questionable. With 33 goals in Lyon Lyon has not the best defense in France and the draw three weeks ago against the Catalans was very happy. Guests must try to relieve pressure and pinpricks on the fast Bertrand Traore or Memphis Depay. In the best case succeeds one or the other away goals, which would increase the chances of another big Champions League surprise significantly. All in all, however, it is questionable whether the young team of Bruno Genesio is ready for such a game. At Camp Nou, other big clubs have failed, and so, all in all, at the Barcelona vs. Barcelona match. Lyon a tip on the high odds of the guests not recommended. As mentioned, Easter and Christmas would have to fall to one day for the French, if against the Catalans to actually make it to the quarter-finals.
