    Should be some good games, although anything less than a comfortable advancement to the QFs is unacceptable.

    Lyon are a pretty dangerous counter attacking side with a lot of physical and quick players. They make a lot of defensive mistakes and aren't particularly clinical in front of goal, so I think Barca will prevail.

    No excuses to lose this one..Should win this comfortably but then again, thought the same with Roma last year too..... Hope EV rotates in Jan and doesnt go all out in the Copa... Also figure out his midfield, Not Rakitic Busquets please, Play Vidal and Arthur plus one.

    Looking forward to see Aouar, Fekir and Ndombele against our midfield too.

    They are really fast and always running, something like Liverpool, not a fan of this draw against our "system" but we should stomp on anyone if we want to win CL.

    I hope Valverde doesn't break another record this time around.

    can't complain, one of the best possible draws. If we lose to them just retire team from european competitions.

    Someone kidnap Valverde and force him to rest our starters in the Copa del Rey next month.

    Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Rakitic, Alba and arguably Dembele and Coutinho too should NOT play in the CDR until the final this season.

    I don't care if it makes our chances of getting there lower.
