As was already the case last year when the Gones rubbed shoulders with FC Barcelona, Lyon will have a lot to do on the occasion of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Having finished second in their pool, they will have to do battle with Juventus, one of the big favorites of the competition. But, the Bianconeri do not scare the Rhodaniens and even less their president, Jena-Michel Aulas.
The President of Lyon spoke on Wednesday about this poster. In an interview with OLTV, he said he was optimistic by highlighting the difficulties recently encountered by the Old Lady on the domestic scene. “We know that Juventus has just lost twice to Lazio. It may also be a sign. She is not invincible, "he said.
As a reminder, a few years ago, Lyon and Juventus met in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. It was in the 2013/14 season and the Bianconeri won both outward (1-0) and return (2-1). The Gones will therefore have a revenge to take. By then, however, they would be well-advised to improve their lot in the league (12th at break).
