The MCI vs LYN match preview –

The English champions Manchester City travel to face French side in Olympique Lyon as they play a game in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Manchester City are eyeing the only competition that has been out of their hands and that is the Champions League. They are league leaders in the Premier League but coach Pep Guardiola knows that he needs to deliver a European trophy to immortalise himself as the best manager this club has ever had. A win in this contest will help them secure a first spot in the table and get favourable matchups in the next round.

Meanwhile, Olympique Lyon were the team that caused the first upset of the season for Manchester City. They were the better team and will be looking to prove they are not a one-trick pony. Lyon has done really well to stay relevant in both competitions given how much the club has transformed recently. Maybe, this will be the team they are going to build their future on.
