Ousmane Dembele has warned Barcelona of the dangers they face from Lyon ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League last 16 clash.

Barca are in Lyon for the first leg and Dembele is under no illusions how difficult their task will be against Bruno Genesio’s side.

“They’re a team with very good players and it’s very difficult to win there. They demonstrated this season - winning against City and PSG - that we will have to be very attentive and not think that the game will be easy.

”The OL Stadium is very big and beautiful and it will be a great atmosphere when they receive Barça. We will have to be very concentrated.

”I look closely at their Ligue 1 matches, and I play alongside some of their players in the French national team like Fekir, Mendy or Moussa Dembélé. They are dangerous all over the pitch.”

Rather weirdly Lyon played out three 2-2 draws in their three home games in the group stages against Manchester City, Shakhtar Donetsk and Hoffenheim.
