Tip Lyon - Juventus

 by James |

Juventus travel to France this week for the first leg of their round of 16 Champions League clash against Lyon. The reigning champions of Serie A are enduring a testing title battle in this campaign with both Lazio and Inter Milan on their tails. The incredible form of Cristiano Ronaldo keeps them one step ahead of their chasers. Ronaldo was among the scorers as Juventus beat SPAL 2-1 on Saturday. It was a landmark occasion for the Portuguese goal addict, the 11th successive Serie A match in which he scored, equalling a record held by Gabriel Batistuta and Fabio Quagliarella. Typical of a player who seems to break multiple records every week, Ronaldo achieved the feat on his 1,000th senior appearance, that strike being goal number 725 of a stellar career. The one advantage that Lyon have is that a scouting report won't be necessary on this game's dangerman. 

Lyon have suffered a more difficult campaign than Juventus. Losing key players like Memphis Depay and Jeff Reine-Adelaide to injury has limited their attacking options while a difficult relationship with their own fans has added to the feeling of dissatisfaction. They still have quality within their ranks, the goals of Moussa Dembele playing a big part in keeping them in the hunt for European places. He has yet to score in the Champions League but with 20 goals this season (including six in his last ten appearances), Dembele is an obvious threat. In six previous encounters, Lyon have failed to win against Juventus. They struggled in the group stage and have failed to make it past the last 16 round in their last three attempts. Although they have only lost four of their last 18 European games - pulling off big wins over Man City in that time - this seems like a tall task for Lyon. Back an away win.

Our prediction

Only a last-minute goal by Atletico Madrid midfielder Hector Herrera prevented Juventus from winning all three of their away games in the group stage. A world-class squad with hundreds of Champions League appearances between the members of their starting eleven, few teams will be able to compete with Juventus. Lyon are not in their category and that's why we expect an away win.
