Teams that in the first leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League goals not scored, will decide the fate of vouchers in the next stage in Spain. Barcelona is preparing to take the lion. And, according to bookmakers, will have no difficulty with him to the applause of the home fans. But so does simple French compared to the Catalans? It's time to understand this issue.
The current champion of Spain with great probability defend his title in late spring. After all the wards by March Valverde settled on the first place of the standings with a second from Atletico Madrid to seven points. So why not switch to the Champions League, which after last season Barcelona took off on the stage of the finals? Recall that when the Catalans thanks to the away goal rule from the tournament knocked out Roma.
And here the bronze prize-winner of League 1 not even harbors hopes for a championship in France. It is already clear that the title will retain the PSG. Lyon are fighting for the medals, and obviously yielding the second place Lille. And while Saint-Etienne and Marseille Reims a little behind, why not fight the Catalans at their own lair?
Still, it is unlikely that Lyon get something to work out. If the home is to grind dry draw helped them luck and not too active attack, now Messi and his partners will operate quite differently. Perhaps the defeat of the French is still not. But to lose in the "Blue garnet" in front of their fans will not age to decide the fate of the match in the first half. Our prediction – Barcelona to win. No options.
