Live updates: Lyon vs. Juventus


Lyon: This team had hit a rough patch with just one win in its previous five before winning at Metz on Friday, but it wasn't all that convincing of a performance to begin with. Moussa Dembele hit the 20-goal mark in that win and has really done a fine job helping deal with the loss of Memphis Depay. He'll need to finish a chance or two in this one for the French club to have life heading into the return leg. 

Juvenuts: Juve is in a quality run of form but Maurizio Sarri didn't really rest many players ahead of this clash. Entering with a day less of rest and so many recent fixtures, will they be a step slow here? Getting Giorgio Chiellini back from injury is a plus in defense, but he's still not back in sync. Ronaldo seems to score in every single match as of late, and he'll like his chances of finding the net once again here. 

Lyon vs. Juventus prediction

Cristiano Ronaldo keeps his form going with two goals and a convincing road win for the Italian club.

Pick: Juventus 3, Lyon 0
