Champions League: Real Madrid vs. Lyon, Chelsea vs. Copenhagen [Live Stream]
Real Madrid vs. Lyon Live Stream: European giants Real Madrid and Olympique Lyonnais lock horns at Stade de Gerland this evening in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Los Blancos faced Lyon in the same stage of the competition last season, losing 1-0 in France, before only drawing 1-1 at the Bernabeu to lose 2-1 on aggregate. Real have not beaten the seven-time French champions in six meetings since 2006, but the Spanish heavyweights are much stronger now following the arrival of Jose Mourinho and several new players.
“There are lots of new players who have joined the squad and weren’t here for the elimination last year,” Mourinho told reporters.
Real are currently second in the Spanish league, five points behind leaders Barcelona, and will be high on confidence following their 2-0 victory over Levante at the weekend. However, things have been a little more complicated for Mourinho’s side on their travels and this match will be an indication if they have really improved.
Chelsea vs. Copenhagen Live Stream: The Blues are chasing their final hope of trophy this season and tonight, all eyes will be on Fernando Torres as the 26-year-old Spanish striker tries to end his goal search against the Danish club.
Torres’s first two appearances for Chelsea were underwhelming but tonight, the former Liverpool star could be the key for the West Londoners.
Both games will start at 20:45 CET.
UPDATE: Bafetimbi Gomis scored in the 83rd minute against Real Madrid to give Lyon a 1-1 draw. In Denmark, Nicolas Anelka scored on each side of half as Chelsea beat Copenhagen 2-0.
