Barcelona vs Lyon UEFA Champions League Match Preview | 13 Mar 2019 Round of 16 2nd Leg, TV Channel, Live Online, Possible Line up, Prediction, Odds & Latest News.
The tie is finely poised after a 0-0 draw in the first leg in France, but the task for Lyon looks a rather daunting one.
Since their first-leg stalemate, Barcelona has won all four games they have played in all competitions, including two wins over Real Madrid, and have opened up a seven-point lead at the top of La Liga.
Barcelona managed twenty-five shots in the first game yet failed to find the back of the net. We can readily expect the Spanish champions to improve the finishing at the Camp Nou where they have scored in 31 consecutive games.
Lyon, however, has shown themselves this term to be capable of competing in big games and are unbeaten in their seven Champions League matches.
Bruno Genesio’s side won away to Manchester City before drawing at home to the Premier League leaders, while in Ligue 1 they beat PSG last month as well as winning their fierce derby with Saint-Etienne.
A win for the visitors at the Camp Nou looks unlikely, yet they can at least avoid a heavy defeat.

Tips and predictions
Lyon is offered at 20/27 (1.74) to win with a +2 Asian handicap and that looks like a strong option. This bet pays out if Lyon win, draw or lose by one, while our stake is refunded is if they lose by two goals.
SportPesa offer Barca at 4/17 (1.24) to win in 90 minutes and the Catalans have not lost a home game in the Champions League since 2013. Lyon for their part can be backed 21/2 (11.50) to win and at 7/2 (4.50) to qualify.
