== MATCH INFO ==
Team : Barcelona vs Lyon
Date : Wednesday, March 13
Start Time : 4:00 Pm Et
Barcelona topped their group after victories against Tottenham Hotspur, Inter and PSV Eindhoven, and they will be targeting a similar result as they try to bring an end to Real Madrid’s three-year domination of Europe’s biggest tournament.
Barcelona: Lionel Messi and company are favorites to win the competition and have looked spectacular for most of the season. But last time out against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, the club failed to score for the first time all season. They’ll plan to bounce back in a big way and get at least a goal, knowing at home they can do what is needed to advance.
Lyon: This team has proven it can compete with the big boys, evident by the win over Manchester City in the group stage. Lyon also just handed PSG its first league defeat, so the belief will be there. But because of how sharp Barcelona’s attack has been and Lyon’s ability to get results on the road, they’ll likely play a bit conservative here. The goal should be to not concede a goal first and foremost, entering the second leg with life.
