Lyon vs. Barcelona : UCL Preview

Lyon vs. Barcelona : UCL Preview

Lyon vs. Barcelona : UCL Preview Olympique Lyonnais have made it to the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2011/12. They have been eliminated at the round of 16 five of the last six times they have reached that stage.

Barcelona are unbeaten against Olympique Lyonnais, winning four of their six previous matches with the French club, all in the UEFA Champions League. The Catalans have also scored in all six of those games.

Olympique Lyonnais and Barcelona’s last competitive encounter came 10 years ago, in the round of 16 of the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League. Barcelona won 6-3 on aggregate.

Olympique Lyonnais and Barcelona remained unbeaten in this season’s UEFA Champions League group stages. In fact, it’s the first time two teams are facing each other in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League without a defeat to their name all season since Barcelona and Manchester Utd met in the 2007/08 semi-finals.

Olympique Lyonnais have made it to the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2011/12. They have been eliminated at the round of 16 five of the last six times they have reached that stage.

Barcelona have reached the UEFA Champions League knockout stages for the 15th consecutive season, only Real Madrid are on a longer run (22). The last time they failed to make it past the round of 16 was in 2006/07 when they were eliminated by Liverpool.

Olympique Lyonnais have drawn each of their last five UEFA Champions League games; a sixth in a row would equal the record for most consecutive draws in a single UCL season held by AEK Athens (2002/03) and Glasgow Rangers (2005/06).

Olympique Lyonnais have averaged 44% possession in this season’s UEFA Champions League, the lowest ratio among the 16 teams left in the competition whilst only Real Madrid have had more possession (65%) than Barcelona (64%).

Olympique Lyonnais conceded 11 goals in this season’s UEFA Champions League group stages, the highest total amongst the 16 clubs left in the competition.

All five goals conceded by Barcelona in this season’s UEFA Champions League have come in the second-half, including three in the final 10 minutes.

Olympique Lyonnais’s Memphis Depay has assisted four goals in the UEFA Champions League this season, the joint-most alongside Kylian Mbappé and Riyad Mahrez. The last Olympique Lyonnais player to assist four or more goals in the competition was Juninho Pernambucano in 2008/09 (4).

Since (and including) the 2009 UEFA Champions League final, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has scored 90 goals in 90 starts in the competition.

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has failed to score (or deliver an assist) in his last 1,418 minutes of play away from home in the UEFA Champions League, that’s 23 hours and 38 minutes without finding the net or setting up a goal. The last time he scored on the road came in September 2015 against Roma at the Olimpico.
