Champions | Lyon surprises ‘the Italian’

first_imgGoals1-0, 30 ‘: Lucas Tousart As expected, the tables changed in the second half. Juventus was forced to advance lines, and Rudi García, showing off his defensive label, delayed the team about 20 meters to tie the result. It was no longer the Lyon of the first half that reached all duels and attacked the backlash with great sufficiency.The match began to be in the boots of Paulo Dybala. The Argentine had been missing in the first half, but with a much more dominating Juventus, began to appear between the lines and punish Lyon. A side center ended up in his boots, but the shot went off touching the post. Virtually every occasion of Sarri’s started from him.In the final minutes, lJuventus squeezed more than normal, but Lyon contained all the rush of the Italians. Cristiano Ronaldo requested a penalty from Denayer, but the Belgian collided shoulder to shoulder with the former Madrid. Gil Manzano annulled a goal from Dybala almost at the end for offside and Lyon ended up surprising Juve.

The set of Rudi García surprised Juventus with a lonely goal from Lucas Tousart, and faces the return with advantage in a tie that started as one of the most unequal of all the round of 16.The clear favoritism of Juventus was evident in the absence of an hour of the game with the eleven of Lyon. Rudi García decided to bet on a defense of three centrals to stop Dybala and Cristiano, with the novelty of Guimaraes, who debuted in the Champions League forming the double local pivot with Tousart. For its part, Sarri lined a 4-3-3, with the inclusion of Rabiot in the center of the field and with Square on the right side to defend the area of ​​influence of Aouar in the left sector of Lyon.It mattered little that Juventus came as a Series A leader and that Lyon was in low hours. The Champions does not understand performance in local competitions, and that was demonstrated again in today’s game. Although Sarri’s dominated the first ten minutes, enclosing a fairly passive Lyon, as the minutes passed, the French team broke loose and began to believe that it could defeat a superior rival. Cristiano warned with a poisoned center-chut in the first minutes, but it was a mirage.The good work of Lyon, with a system of three centrals that plugged the sides of Juventus on the ball, found its fruits in the 31st minute. Aouar, a player who the fan asks for a step forward in the big appointments, made a play mark of the house on the left and attended Tousart. The midfielder of Lyon, so criticized in recent months, marks for the second consecutive year in the second round, after having already scored Barcelona last season.The nerves began to settle in Juventus, unable to draw a single danger attack, beyond two Cristiano Ronaldo centers. In fact, Olympique de Lyon found a highway on the right side. Dubois, right lane, always received brand free, and Alex Sandro, very pressured at the start of the ball, did not receive a single help from Rabiot. There, both the side of Lyon and Toko-Ekambi, signed two clear occasions before the break, but the former Villarreal could not score when shooting high two shots could well have carried more danger on the goal defended by Szczęsny.last_img read more
