Description: MCI Vs LYN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: City stand on the brink of making it into the semi-finals
They both played their round of 16 second round encounters on the same night and both Manchester City and Lyon pulled off results of the season on the day. Downing Juventus and Real Madrid respectively on the same day, today’s opponents take on each other in a bid to keep their sparkling run intact.
Although Manchester City held a crucial 2-1 lead against Real Madrid as they welcomed them to England, the Premier League side knew it couldn’t rest on its laurels. The side was up against a massively improved Real Madrid team, a side which had transformed itself into a juggernaut in the last couple of months to maraud its way to another title.
However, despite the staunch task staring them in the face, City for once proved their pedigree in a competition which has played hide and seek with the side till now. The home side completely controlled proceedings, stunning everyone with their dominance as they wiped the floor with Real Madrid to register a 3-1 win in their favour.
MCI Vs LYN Dream11 Probable Winner
Concurrently, Lyon were slowly easing their way into the quarter-finals. Although the French side had it way tougher than City, their opening goal of the match against Juventus was more than enough to see the club manage to eek out a win on away goals despite being defeated on the night.
It was one of the biggest results for the club till date, one which sees them in with a chance today. Their resolute defence is capable of making life an adversity for City but won’t be enough to curb this pulsating City attack from guiding the team to a win.

Dream 11 Picks
Anthony Lopes ended up emerging as the match winner for Lyon across their two tied fixture against Juventus. A cleansheet in the first round and a bevy of saves the second time the two met saw the shot stopper take mainstay in his side’s journey to this round.
Where Lyon have made life a quagmire for their opponents with their defensive girt, the team has not offered much on the attacking front. This is a side which has seen the goals dry up for it since making a return on the footballing arena with the side scoring just once in its last two clashes.
This is the ideal team for Manchester City to dominant and leave in dismay. The likelihood of a cleansheet for the Premier League club is extremely palpable to see us opt for a triad of picks from the club for the impending affair.
All of Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho will be inducted into our framework from the club while Lyon will see the gustiness and gallantry of Fernando Marcal see him become the lone selection from the side.
Riyadh Mahrez was let out of his team’s travails altogether the last time around but we envisage him returning for this clash. Well rested and with four assists in his kitty in the Champions League, he’ll be asked to utilise his guile to help his team scour past Lyon’s defensive might.
Kevin de Bruyne with the two assists joins up the midfielder, a myriad player who has controlled proceedings for the club with his attacking traits. Bruno Guimaraes will be our selection from Lyon with the plucky midfielder making for a must pick at frugal 8 credits given the manner in which he’s rifled his way the tackles and blocks.
Both Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored for Manchester City against Real Madrid to become the architects of their side’s win on the day. Elsewhere, Memphis Depay took his side into today’s encounter after scoring the penalty he got in the early exchanges against Juventus to make the 6 goal man our pick from Lyon.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With the 6 goals apiece, Sterling will captain our side while Jesus is the vice-captain.
