I would not read too much into Barcelona's loss at home to Espanol over the weekend, they were down to ten men fairly early on and a league slip up has been on the cards for sometime, was long overdue and given their lead in La Liga, it was only natural that their focus would turn to the Champions League at some stage.
At around the same time, Lyon were beating Nancy on the road comfortably, despite resting a handful of key players. All are set to return this evening and we should see these two attack minded teams attempt to outscore each other. Lyon will be looking to take a lead to the Camp Nou, after losing 3-0 there in the group stage last season, the meeting here ended 2-2 and a repeat is certainly not out of the question. Barclona's three away group games this year were all "over" and produced 15 goals, with Lyon's three home ties, yielding eleven.
6.5 points "over " 2.5 goals 2.06 asian line.
