Tournament favorites Manchester City are eager to win their first ever Champions League title this season, and their two legged win over one of the most successful side in Champions League history i.e. Real Madrid means, they are hungry to end their years of disappointment in the competition.
Lyon is certainly a tricky side to overcome, hence it will not be so easy for the Citizens. In the last 16, Lyon conquered Juventus which means they can disappoint any team on their day.
After loosing their title to Liverpool, defeat in FA Cup have raised questions for Manchester giants but they carry a strong record of being unbeaten in their last eight Champions League assignments.
City are worried as their star striker – Sergio Agüero remains out of the field due to injury. Apart from this, Manchester City have conceded in each of their last six UEFA Champions League matches, which means they do have problem in defence.
On the other hand French underdogs – Lyon have proved that they are capable of upsetting odds on their day. Heading into this fixture, they have closed the doors for club like Juventus in last 16.
Outside France, Olympique Lyonnais were turned over in each of their last three Champions League away matches and they conceded twice on each occasion.
With six wins and two draws, Manchester City are one of the most consistent team in Champions League this season. Though, their weakness in defence is something that opponents have been able to exploit. With Maxwel Cornet, Moussa Dembele, Memphis Depay, we can expect goals from both sides.
Keeping Manchester City’s star studded attack in mind and Lyon’s away record, it is going to be another cracker. Manchester City are averaging 2.5 goals per 90 minutes this season in Champions League.
