Manchester City and Lyon contest the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in Lisbon. Man City have their best chance of winning the competition and are unlikely to slip up in Portugal.

Manchester City Form

Manchester City finished 2nd in the Premier League despite scoring 102 goals. Pep Guardiola’s side won 5-0 against Norwich in their last EPL match of the season with Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne (2), Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez on target.

Man City followed up their 2-1 away win against Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 with a 2-1 win in Manchester. Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus were on target as they capitalised on two errors from Raphael Varane.

They deserved the win after having 55% possession and 20-9 shots.

Lyon had a 1-0 advantage against Juventus before the second leg in Italy last week. Memphis Depay scored an early penalty, two Cristiano Ronaldo goals gave Juve every chance to progress but Lyon held on to progress on away goals.

They were understandably on the back foot for large periods of the match. They had 38% possession, two shots on target and picked up seven yellow cards.
