In the Round of 16 Match we have Real Madrid taking on Lyon in the Champions League and both of these teams met at the smae stage last year and it was Lyon who came out as winners but alot has changed since than and Jose Mourinho has brough some solidity in the team and it will be interesting to see how they go about the match because they are playing away from home in the first leg which gives them a wonderful oopertnity to go out there and get a good result to bring some sort of advantage to Santiago Bernabue in the 2nd Leg.
Lyon 1-1 Ream Madrid 1st Leg – Champions League 2011
Real Madrid vs Olympic Lyon Champions League:
Date: 22 February 2011, Time: 7:45 PM GMT
Lyon are usual suspects of the Champions League knock out, they are always there and there about in the Europe’s Premier Competition and it will be interesting to see how will they handle a better Real Madrid this time around. Last year it was 1-0 win for them at home while they scored 1-1 in the seond leg to go through to the Quarter Finals.
Real Madrid are coming into this match on the back of a great result in the League against Levante which helped them reduce the gap at the top and now they will be hoping to get a good result in the hampions League as well, Real are now just 2 points behind the League leaders who will be playing on Sunday night, while they are in the Copa Del Rey against Bbarcelona so this has been a superb sesaon to say the least for them.
Predictions: I can see Real Madrid going out there and getting a good result nad France and making the second leg easier ofr them. Im going with a 0-1 Win for Real Madrid in the First Leg.
