Lyon may not have taken any points from their first Champions League Group H match against Juventus a fortnight ago, but their level of performance that night, coupled with a league win over Toulouse at the weekend, has given coach Bruno Genesio confidence that his side can cause the Bianconeri problems tomorrow in Turin.
“We played very well against a strong Juve side the other week in Lyon. We just lacked that cutting edge in front of goal, which is an area we’ll try to improve on tomorrow. It’s our aim to score.
“We know precisely where Juve’s qualities lie and we go into this game looking to take our chances. I’ve faith in my players, we can take a lot of heart from our win on Saturday and I don’t see why we can’t replicate our performance in that victory against Toulouse.”
Echoing his boss’ assertion that Lyon would roll up their sleeves in the hope of gaining a positive outcome at Juventus Stadium was visiting captain Maxime Gonalons.
