GUI-ME A CHANCE
Lyon beat off competition from clubs including Arsenal to secure the signature of highly-rated Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes in January.
The 22-year-old makes his Champions League debut tonight.
Can he show Europe why he is so well regarded in Brazil?
The teams are out to warm up and there's a certain star in the house!
This man certainly knows his way around this competition.
Rudi Garcia and Co will have to have an incredible plan in order to thwart him tonight.
I'M SARRI TO SAY…
Maurizio Sarri is under pressure to deliver in the Champions League this season.
Juventus chiefs know they only have a limited time frame in which Cristiano Ronaldo will still be primed and ready to deliver in Europe.
So it seems curious, perhaps, that they decided to turn to Sarri last summer, a man seemingly at odds with the win-at-all-costs philosophy of Juventus.
Can the Italian, wedded to his system, provide the continental success that Juve have craved for over 20 years?
We'll see, but losing this tie to Lyon is unthinkable, and would probably prove to be sackable offence in the eyes of the board.
Relations between the two club's mascots seem far more cordial than they will be between their players later on…
RON HELL OF AN OBSTACLE
Sitting down in seventh in Ligue 1, seven points off the Champions League qualification places, Lyon will be desperate to make the most of their run in this season's competition.
But standing in their way tonight, is a quite formidable foe.
Just how will Rudi Garcia's side deal with this man?
