Champions League: Real Madrid vs. Lyon Live Stream (2nd Leg)
Real Madrid vs. Lyon Live Stream: Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid take on Olympique Lyonnais in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 fixture tonight at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The French side eliminated Real at this stage last season so the Spanish giants will be out for revenge. However, history is firmly with Lyon as Real have failed to beat Les Gones in seven European encounters.
Lyon have to score at least one goal in order to have a chance of reaching the quarterfinals following the 1-1 draw at Stade de Gerland last month. If the match ends goalless, Mourinho’s side will progress on account of their away goal but another 1-1 stalemate will force the game into extra time and possibly into penalty kicks. Any other kind of draw apart from the 1-1 will mean Claude Puel’s men retain their hold over Real.
“Lyon are a very good team and we will have to be in top form if we are to progress,” Mourinho was quoted as saying. “Obviously we can’t win all the time but we will do our best to qualify for the next round.”
The match kicks of at 20:45 CET (19:45 London).
UPDATE: Real reached the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in seven years by beating Lyon 3-0 at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night (4-1 on aggregate).
