Lyon’s president spoke about the return match with Juventus. Jean-Michel Aulas thinks that his club will be easily defeated and PSG too.

Lyon have a chance to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and even though the season in France has been declared over, they will do their best to play in the return match against Juventus.

Jean-Michel Aulas, president of the French club  spoke about it. He also named the date of the return match with Juventus. Recall that the day of the renewal of the UEFA Champions League has not yet been announced.

“The match between Juventus and Lyon will be held on Friday, August 7. Of course, in Turin and, of course, without spectators, “Aulas said in an interview with Radio RTL.


“Lyon and PSG will be easily beaten.”


Recall that Lyon strongly opposed the termination of the season in France and filed a lawsuit in court after the government’s decision. After the end of the season was announced, Lyon took the 7th place.

Instead, the team has a great chance to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Lyon beat Juventus 1: 0 at home. However, the club’s president has no hope that his team will achieve the desired result in Turin.

“If our protest does not succeed and the season in France does not last, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain will be easily beaten by any team in the Champions League, which will be prepared and will have playing practice. We shouldn’t have finished the season so early, “said Aulas.
