Match Preview :

Manchester City vs Lyon match is going to be held on 15-th August at Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)

It’s a very  interesting football match at UEFA Champions League play offs.

Man. City comfortably qualified as unbeaten winners of Group C and then served notice of their intent with an eye-catching 4-2 aggregate defeat of Real Madrid in the round of 16.

Lyon were grateful to an unbeaten home record as they edged the runners-up spot in Group G with just eight points. However, the round of 16 was a different story as they survived a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired comeback to oust Juventus on away goals

For City, the beating of Madrid felt like a big moment – their first triumph in the knockout rounds over one of the continent’s elite clubs. Immediately afterwards, though, Josep Guardiola was quick to underline his respect for a Lyon side who took four points off City in last season’s group stage and who get the ball forward as quickly as any team in the competition.

Notwithstanding that note of caution, the way City defeated Madrid – a high-tempo, high-pressing template that included some terrific individual displays – augurs well for this next test, even if Sergio Agüero is unlikely to be available as he continues his recovery from a knee problem.

David Crossan, Lyon reporter: Don’t expect Lyon to alter radically the plan that proved successful against Juventus. Maxwel Cornet was the scourge of City two years ago in the group stage and he has adapted well to his new wing-back position. Centre-half Marcelo will need to put in another huge performance if OL are to spring another shock, while Moussa Dembélé could come in for Toko Ekambi to partner former Manchester United man Memphis Depay in attack. The Dutchman has been terrific in this season’s competition
The favorite team is Manchester City, but Lyon try to show us their best game, to play next leg.
