Juventus on the other hand are already in next season’s champions league having won their ninth consecutive Serie A title.Maurizio Sarri’s men suffered key losses towards the end of their campaign including a loss to Napoli in the Coppa Italia final.
Memphis Depay and Cristiano Ronaldo will look to inspire their teams to a win and qualify for the quarter-finals.
Here’s what the managers had to say:
Maurizio Sarri, Juventus coach: “It will take a great performance, Lyon have evolved a lot and are solid in defence. They defend with intensity and effectiveness. The first-leg result allows them to approach the game according to those characteristics. It will be a very difficult match, but not impossible. [Cristiano Ronaldo] is training in the right way, yesterday he scored an extraordinary goal in training. He played a lot of games in a short time, he rested a little and now he has trained with intensity and vigour. We will try until tomorrow morning to get Paulo Dybala ready, right now he is working with our medical staff. Probably Juan Cuadrado will start, we will see if it is in a more defensive or attacking role.”
Rudi Garcia, Lyon coach: “We’re very happy to be playing in this match and very motivated by the prospect of reaching the quarter-finals. Juventus have a lot of great players. We come here with a lot of humility, but also a lot of ambition. We have quickly digested the [League Cup final] defeat against PSG, and moved our focus to this game. Bruno Guimarães is a good player. He hasn’t been with us long but he’s already given us a lot.”
