OL will have to go out the perfect match to hope to take at least one point in the favorite of the pool.

State of form

Reigning England champion Manchester City has flown over the competition last season on the national stage and is now aiming to be well-represented in the Champions League. Last year, the Citizens lost to Liverpool in the 1/4 final (1-5 overall). Author of a near-perfect start to the season (4 wins – 1 draw), Pep Guardiola’s side are currently 3rd in the Premier League, 2 units of the Chelsea-Liverpool duo, and they remain on a nice home win against Fulham last Saturday (3-0).
Last year’s Europa League finalist, Lyon is back in the most prestigious club competition this season. The Gones have directly validated their ticket for the group stage after finishing 3rd in Ligue 1 behind PSG and Monaco. Unconvincing since the restart, the teammates of Nabil Fekir have just followed two meetings without success in Ligue 1, home against Nice (0-1 defeat) and on the lawn of Caen last Sunday (2-2). Only 7th in the standings, the Gones point to already 8 units of the leader of Paris.
