Juventus vs. Lyon Match Analysis and Prediction

After clinching the ninth Serie A title, Juventus will set their eyes on the quarter-finals of the Champions League. This will see the Old Lady play host to Lyon at the Allianz. The match schedules for Friday with kickoff at 4 p.m.

Serie A champions had an unimpressive finish to their 2019-20 campaign after a series of lacklustre performances. The side managed to clinch the title with 83 points, followed closely with second-placed Inter Milan with 82 points.

Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to win a Champions League with the Old Lady. Despite being 35 years old, he has proven still a threat netting 32 goals in this season. Lewandowski and Immobile across Europe only better the record.

Lyon will mark their return to competitive action after failing to clinch the Coupe de la Ligue final against rivals Paris Saint Germaine on penalties. The side has not been inactive competition since the France top flight came to an end.

The side recently suffered another 2-0 defeat to side Rangers. However, the side received a boost by posting wins over Nice, Gent and Celtic. However, the side is no strange when it comes to Champions League knockout stages. It will prove to be a test for Rudi Garcia to move past the Old Lady with a one-goal lead.
