Teams Status –
The players that are predicted to play the kick-off match are Ter Stegen, Jordi Alba, Luis Suarez, Dembele, Rakitic, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Messi, Nelson Semedo, Lenglet and Pique. Rafinha and Vermaelen would be unable to play the kick-off match due to their injury.

The players that won’t be able to play the kick-off match are Gouiri, Morel, Marcal and Marcelo. It is unsure but there is a slight possibility that Marcal and Marcelo may also play the kick-off.
The predicted line-up for Barcelona is 4-3-3 that is Ter Stegen; Nelson Semedo, Lenglet, Pique, Jordi Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, Sergi Roberto; Messi, Luis Suarez, Dembele. While on the other hand, the predicted line-up for Lyon could be 4-2-3-1 that is Lopes; Tete, Dubois, Denayer, Mendy; Ndombele, Tousart; Traore, Fekir, Depay; Dembele.
Lyon has maintained its counter attacking style in this season. It also helped them getting their win at the Man City earlier in this season. So, according to the prediction, it could be said that the game would be intense from the beginning and can give an early goal. But as if the opponent is Barcelona, so there are chances that the first half will not account goal to any of the team and the rest half will destine that which team wins or loses. Looking at both the teams, one would easily expect Barcelona to grab the win of the tomorrow’s kick-off.
