Betting Preview: Barcelona vs Lyon: Home Win On The Cards

Amuda Segun



Spanish champions Barcelona are heavy favourites to secure a quarterfinal spot in the Champions League at the expense of their French opposition Lyon.

The Blaugrana will host the French Ligue 1 giants in the second leg of their last 16 tie in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Barcelona have won 26 of their last 29 Champions League matches at the Nou Camp and they are expected to seal a win over Lyon at the end of proceedings.

The Nou Camp giants dominated the first leg but they were unable to find a way past a resolute Lyon rearguard in front of their fans as both sides settled for a goalless draw.

The second leg meeting at the Nou Camp will certainly be a different ball game for Bruno Genesio and his players who have a small fraction of fans to call on for motivation in comparison to the first leg.

Barcelona are overwhelming favourites according to BetKing with the odds of 1.26.

The Nou Camp giants can secure a 12th successive semifinal appearance in the Champions League with a win.

An unlikely victory for Lyon is at the odds of 11.00 while a stalemate between the two sides is at the odds of 6.5 according to Betking.
