There is good news for Lyon, as Nabil Fekir was approved to start. According to the graph of Uefa, which may not be entirely accurate, the hosts will play with three in the back and two of forward, which would be a kind of radical departure from the 4-4-1-1 that they used so successfully. against Man City in the Etihad. Moussa Dembele is out and does not even reach the bank of Lyon.
Phil Foden does not start for City, with Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and David Silva filling the midfield positions. John Stones returns for Nicolas Otamendi, Oleksandr Zinchenko replaces Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez is for Ilkay Gundogan.
