Cristiano Ronaldo and co. will need to keep Moussa Dembele’s Lyon side at bay when they travel to Groupama Stadium for their UCL last 16 tie
Lyon currently sit in seventh in Ligue 1, but top-scorer Moussa Dembele – who has netted 14 times in the league – will pose as a massive goalscoring threat for the away side.
The Italians have made winning the Champions League as a top priority, having not won the competition since 1996. Juventus had even bought Ronaldo – a five-time Champions League winner – from Real Madrid in a view to bolster their chances of winning the competition based on his wealth of experience, but were ultimately undone by an impressive Ajax side in last season’s quarter-finals.
