One of the leaders of the French championship in the 1/8 Champions League will face a Spanish grandee. Who will win Lyon or Barcelona? The largest bookmakers practically do not doubt that in a quarterfinal of "Blue garnet". Why? Let's try to understand. And at the end of this material, you will have to wait a prediction on the outcome of the upcoming game.
"The weavers" had a good two months of winter in Ligue 1. They conceded the fifth of December, has won since then in four games and three tied. Yes, and inflicted PSG's first defeat of the season (2:1) of the third of February. These results allowed charges Bruno Genesio to gain a foothold on the third place in the championship. But the gap on second place is only three points. So for the silver Lyon can still go on.
But in the Champions League this spring, "the Lions" hardly that shines. And all because of a too strong opponent at the stage of one-eighth.
The Catalans are clearly on the winning the title of national champion. After twenty two rounds they scored fifty points and the lead in La Liga with six points from Atletico. And in the Champions League last autumn they were very confident – first place in the group, which also played Tottenham, inter and PSV. Now wards of Ernesto Valverde definitely intend to go far in the main club tournament of the Old world. And the French team is unlikely to stop them.
In the opinion of our editorial staff, this battle is obvious. Our prediction – Barcelona to win. As in the first mast and the opposition in General.
