Manchester City vs Olympique Lyon 15.08.2020
Manchester City convincingly knocked out high-flying Real Madrid in the last round with 2-1 victories both home and away. The Citizens have shown excellent form in the Champions League by winning their Group C and remaining unbeaten in the competition up to now. They also finished their domestic league strongly by winning the last five games to seal second place. On the other hand, Lyon have had mixed outcomes in recent matches. Knocking out Juventus was impressive but Lyon barely made it on away-goal rule after losing the second leg 2-1. Before that, they had lost to PSG on penalties in the finals of the French League Cup and finished a disappointing 7th in Ligue 1. With Man City is such excellent form, they are likely to dominate and win this game.
