UEFA Champions League Live Stream Reddit for Lyon vs Barcelona

"Our recent statistics away from home in the Champions League have not been good".

Ernesto Valverde appeared in a press conference on Monday ahead of the Champions Leaguer game against Lyon this week.

Against Valladolid the Uruguayan had one of his worst performances of the season for Barça.

Barcelona travel to Lyon in great form in LaLiga, with their 1-0 home win over Valladolid on Saturday their ninth in their last 11 matches.

Too often attacks came to die at Suarez's feet, with the striker looking out of his depth at the Groupama Stadium.

The French club are in the knockout phase of the competition for the first time in seven years after emerging from their group unbeaten.

Against Chelsea in the previous round, Messi scored a late away goal in the first leg which completely changed the complexion of the tie and forced the Blues to be more ambitious in the second leg which allowed the Catalans to catch them on the counter.

And such wastefulness was almost punished, with Lyon no mugs and looking to hit Barcelona on the break whenever they could.

But Genesio has other concerns in midfield and defence, with doubts surrounding the fitness of both Jason Denayer and Tanguy Ndombele.

The Barcelona striker has lost a half a yard - or perhaps a whole one - during his time in Catalonia, and physically was bested by the Belgian.

Barca had a total of 25 shots but only five on target and their best chance came in the last minute when Sergio Busquets's 18-metre attempt was tipped over the bar by Anthony Lopes.

Luis Suarez has a very clear personal objective for the match against Lyon tonight: score a goal.

Perhaps the goal-shy midfielder was fed up of watching those in front of him invent new ways not to put the ball in the back of the Lyon net. Playing against FC Barcelona will be a very hard task but with the match being played in Lyon, the home team will hope to get a result from this fixture.

The La Liga giants looked set for a semi-final berth after winning the first leg 4-1 at home but capitulated in the Italian capital, going out on away goals after a humiliating 3-0 defeat.
