"Do not be afraid, Paul, Traoré will make a place for Cornet in 25 minutes," predicts Ane Onime. And what then? Another winner of Cornet?
Lyon 0-0 Barcelona
Entertaining and upscale half, despite the lack of goals. There was no shortage of attacks and lots of tricks, but the finish coating was mostly disabled. Lyon came close to the goals, but the terrier was denied a remarkable preservation from Ter Stegen. But Barcelona overall looked more dangerous, although the two teams had periods of preference.
45 + 1 min. : shot Busquets from the edge of the area of Denire … and slips down the yard.
45 minutes : A good step from Lyon! The "one to two" series opens "Bars" … can the terrier provide the perfect coverage? No! he breaks his shot from 15 meters.  3.44pm EST
43 mins : Dembella collects the passage from Messi at the edge of the Lyon box and then suddenly captures the guardsman with a well-disguised snapshot. Fortunately, for Lyon, he blinks only from the dipped pillar.  3.42pm EST
41 min ]: A rare mistake of Ndombele, which sends a pass straight to Sergei Roberto, who, in turn, releases Suarez to the right. Unexpectedly in Barca there is 3 v 3. But the Suarez pass on Dembele is too long.
40 minutes : Langtöt lucky how he upsets Depay, who passed by and sent Dembel clearly,
38 minutes : Messi delivers a magnificent cross on the left, but Dembel gets a volley attempt
35 min : Suarez is trying to clear the gate from outside the area. But Lopez was practically on his line and is unlikely to fall on it.
34 min : Busquets throws a message to Messi free of charge.
33 min. : Suarez performs one or two in a box with Dembélé, but then he has to leave the Dubois area … who then slides it in and receives a reservation.
30 min : Wonderful game of hosts. Ndombele is again strongly attracted to Depay slipping a good pass through Dembélé, which open the fire from the edge of the box.
28 min : a good spell of Lyon continues. They take Barca back with some very clever passage … before Depay will block and try to get to Dembel.
26 minutes A good course of Lyon – orchestrated by Ndombele – relieves pressure, allowing the owners to spend some time in the opposite half. Mandy joins the attack and passes by Sergei Roberto before he is destroyed. Free kick on Lyon left
24 minutes : Messi dries in the corner. Mandy leads him at the nearest post.
21 min. : Barca breaks forward again. They copy to Lyon every time they get their money and it starts to look ominously for the French side. But they were deprived so far uncharacteristic of Barca's perfect handling. Dembel gave another example by blasting the ball on the rostrum when Suárez turned to the gateway. 15.20 EST
19 min ]: O Dembele turns Dubois down to the left. Lopes does not allow him to beat the run with the goalkeeper, thanks to which he successfully saves on the left.
17 min. : After a magnificent build up, Alba pulls the passage back to the left on Messi, who has a clear shot of 14 yards. But he raises his shot through the bar. The length of the main technique of Messi, who can not fully believe in it!
15 min. : Sergi Roberto throws Rakikić on the edge of the box. Croatian directs a gentle runner to a far corner … but it drifts finely in width.
14 min : after a pleasant passage of the sequence from Lyon, Depay excessively indulging and depriving the Messiah halfway immediately slides forward to try to inflict the maximum punishment. Lion's protection is enough to block his shot from 20 yards.
12 minutes : M. Dembely fools O. Dembely. Messi make a free kick on the left. The title of Marcelo is not clear. O. Dumbell raises him to the edge of the box, but takes a shot.
9 min : Terry arrives to the left and gathers laying back Dembele before throwing a completely brutal shot from 25 yards! And Ter Stegen makes a great rescuer! Achievement was a feat, but having the power of a hand to push a shot on the cross was even more impressive. And then he got up and fell into a rebound before Dembel fell into him.
8 minutes : It was a good open start, with Barcelona looks particularly dynamic. It looks like they are trying to conquer their masters by early doors.
6 min. : Item order: I had to mention in advance that Var is used today and will be in all matches until the end of the competition. I reminded the referent who just reminded the players of the television movement to warn them that they would not be able to part with any trains or pushes when corner strikes were delivered.
5 min. : It's better than Aouar! His curling low shot from the edge of the area forces Ter Stegen to push him around the corner.
5 min. : Messi takes a free kick on the wall … and a couple of yards above the bar. Homemade crowd exhale.
4 minutes : Barsy's press is calculated: Sergi Roberto relieves Auara in the center of the field, and then feeds Messi, who throws into the box. Aouar chases back, but hits the Argentine from behind.
3 mins : Lyon is trying to push Barcelona to tear the building from the back.
1 min : Lyon-Barcelona is coming! Visitors start … and shoot a shot in 24 seconds! Dembele overtook the defense of the house to pursue the passage above Peak peak, and then let go from the left corner of the box. But he broke a bouncing cue a few meters from the far post.
Regardless of Mandy's injury, it did not prevent him from starting: let's hope that he is fitting
The teams go for a huge noise and a lot of coordinated waving the flag.
Oh! It could be a big blow to Lyon and those of us who were looking forward to seeing Mandy in action against Messi: the left arm was injured during the warm up and could be replaced by Marsal.
The atmosphere at OL stadium sounds very nice.
The unexpected is the composition of Lyon – Martin Ter, who will play on the left wing instead of Maxwell Cornet. This is a bit of a turn because Cornet was particularly good at the big games this season, but the 21-year-old terrified his last trips (with Rafa Benitez among those who were shocked how he intended to bring him to Newcastle).
"Denare was phenomenal for Lyon, and an outstanding moment should only be his deployment of a puzzle against PSG a couple of weeks ago," says Kari Tulinius. , Which fluffing his pompoms to the full effect .. "Every Lyon game I watched this season is phenomenal, hope this one is also. Enjoy! I think you've mostly seen your big games? Because, as already mentioned, they have a nice habit to include it in them. It's sad that Fekri is missing, but we can still hope that the Depay, Aouar, Mendy, and Ndombele and Dembele top shows: Lyon, of course, has enough talent to prevent Barca, who at the same time have the ability to kill tie today. 19659026] Updated
The last time Lyon was taking Barcelona, in 2009 they scored (in 1-1) thanks to this masterpiece the only real king freekicks by Juninho Pernambucano. Go to this video at 00:51 and be amazed at Victor Valdes' full disappointment. There are goalkeepers who still have to wake up in a cold sweat, thinking about what Juninho did with them (more about him, read it if you imagine).
A good news for Lyon, as Jason Denire overcame a thigh that is sufficiently suitable to take his place in the central defense where he was  Lyon : Lopes; Dubois, Marcelo, Denier, Mendi; Ndombélé, Aouar; Terry, Depay, Traoré; Dembélé
Subs : Gorgelin, Marçal, Tete, Sheikh, Sole, Cornet, Tusart
Barcelona : Ter Stegen; Semedo, Peak, Langlet, Alba; Sergi Roberto, Busquets, Rakitich; Messi, Suarez, Dembel
Subs : Pena, Coutinho, Malcom, Murillo, Vidal, Umtiti, Alena
Referee : C Cakir (Tour)
Hello and welcome to the last level 16 between the two teams that did not race in the group stages. Barcelona, you remember, rolled to the top of the group, which included Spurs, Inter and PSV, while Lyon was ranked second in Manchester City despite a victory on Pep Guardiola side. Strangely enough, all Lyon's home matches in the group stage ended 2: 2: Barcelona is likely to take today as it leaves them as difficult favorites to finish their work at Camp Nou. On the other hand, they have a clear opportunity to take even greater advantage from this first game, as the suspension deprives Lyon of her simple playkeeper Nabil Fékir.
But in Lyon there are still great players, as well as the habit of releasing their best against the worst opponents. And this side of Barca is vulnerable. Indeed, Barca did not win any of the last matches at the exit in this competition, and in the latter – against Roma in the last season – they were blown away. So today there should be opportunities for both teams, and we can expect them to go to each other with pleasure. In particular, we can count on a duel between Lionel Messi and Ferland Mandy, a 23-year-old left hand who is fond of Barca. In general, we got our potential plunger.
