Barcelona’s Champions League opponents Lyon look to be in pretty good form after thrashing Toulouse 5-1 in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
Bruno Genesio’s men will head to the Camp Nou for the second leg of their last 16 clash on March 13 with the tie all square at 0-0 after the first leg.
They did not lack for goals on Sunday with Memphis Depay firing them ahead after just 10 minutes, although Mathieu Dossevi pulled one back five minutes later.

Moussa Dembele wrapped up the win in the second half with two goals in four minutes to complete a comfortable victory.
