Five Lyon fans injured in Barcelona

Five Lyon fans injured in Barcelona

Barcelona's French forward Ousmane Dembele (C) celebrates after scoring during the UEFA Champions League round of 16, second leg football match between FC Barcelona and Olympique Lyonnais at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on March 13, 2019.

Fuelled by a veinous Cristiano Ronaldo and his self-absorbed quest for Champions League glory, Juve will probably make mincemeat of Ajax over two legs, too.

However, the factor that could ultimately decide this tie may not be tactical: Guardiola's Champions League hopes came to a screaming halt at this same stage last season at the hands of another English club, a 5-1 pounding at the hands of Liverpool.

It will be fascinating to see how Lyon coach Bruno Genesio sets up his team for the game, and how he instructs them to play.

The Champions League quarterfinal draw was conducted Friday, with just two knockout rounds remaining before the June 1 final at Atletico Madrid's Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Messi, in contrast, followed up his outstanding performance by praising Ronaldo. While Jurgen Klopp's side remains a contender for the Premier League crown, Liverpool could very well want to favor the continental championship this spring after finishing runners up a year ago. If teams like Real Madrid and PSG are going out of the Champions League, that's important.

"There are several very good teams", Messi said.

When will the Europa League quarter-final matches be played?

The visitors arrived confident knowing that a single goal would give them an advantage but they were undone by a wonderful performance from Messi, who scored two and created two. An upset isn't impossible here, but it will take United another fantastic game like the one that overturned its 2-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16.

"Barcelona are one of the best teams in Europe", the France worldwide told Lyon's official website. It was his first goal since he scored twice in the Copa del Rey win against Sevilla on January 30.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United will have their work cut out if they are to go any further as they take on the Barcelona of Lionel Messi in the headline tie.
