Although Turin is one of the areas on lockdown after the spread of the Coronavirus, with Sunday’s Scudetto showdown against Inter to be played behind closed doors, there have been no restrictions on Juve supporters travelling to France for this game.

The Bianconeri are unbeaten in the Champions League under Maurizio Sarri and qualified for the knockouts with two games to spare.

Lyon have suffered from numerous injury problems, but former Roma coach Rudi Garcia has a new starlet to count on in Houssem Aouar.

These clubs have crossed paths before and Juve are unbeaten, securing three victories and a 1-1 Turin draw.

Those fixtures were the 2013-14 quarter-finals and 2016-17 group stage, with the Bianconeri winning both trips to Lyon by a 1-0 scoreline.

Olympique Lyonnais have not reached the quarter-finals since 2009-10, losing the last three Round of 16 ties.

On the other hand, Juventus qualified through this stage of the competition every time since 2015-16.
