Lyon won the first leg 1-0 back in February before football across the continent was shut down due to coronavirus.

Lyon, meanwhile, have played just one competitive league game since March and face a tough task to bypass their Italian opponents here.

Juventus v Lyon team news

Juventus: Paulo Dybala is the worry for Juventus with the striker carrying a thigh problem.

Douglas Costa, Mattia De Sciglio and Sami Khedira are all missing. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain should lead the forward line, with Federico Bernardeschi tipped to start too.

Lyon: Memphis Depay played 80 minutes in his return from a cruciate injury in Lyon’s French League Cup final defeat to PSG last week and should start here.

Youssouf Kone is out, while Marcelo could miss the match after suffering a thigh problem. Moussa Dembele will get the nod in the attacking ranks.

Our prediction: Juventus v Lyon

Juventus have lost three of their last four games but that’s largely because all attention is on securing victory here.

Ronaldo should be nicely rested, while Aaron Ramsey will be fighting for a place in the XI.

Juve come into this clash having played all summer, while Lyon have had to try and get back up to speed. Both teams could start feeling the fatigue for different reasons towards the end, but by that point Juve should have done enough to progress.

Our prediction: Juventus 2-0 Lyon (2-1 on aggregate)
