Lyon joined in badly
In the first leg of the round of 1/8 Champions League, Lyon entered full confidence. Within the first 15 minutes, two particularly dangerous situations were created by the French team towards the Barcelona goal. In turn Martin Terrier and Houssem Aouar made Barca's goal shake but unfortunately, there was no goal.
In the rest, Lyon is still quite calm against the attacks coming from the Spanish giant to eventually have a goalless draw at home. But the complete opposite happened when two teams reunited at the fourth night's turn.
The most noticeable Barça 5-1 Lyon highlights the Camp Nou pitch that made Lyon tremble
"Campfire" Camp Nou with nearly 100 thousand spectators packed with noise and noise everywhere brings a feeling of discomfort for the Lyon players. From the beginning, it felt like the guests were overwhelmed.
Lyon's collaborations proved very disjointed and easily lost the ball. In such a context, the pressure on their goal is immense. Everyone thinks that the goal of Barca is only sooner.
The loose team crafts
In the context of psychological panic, Lyon was unable to resist the first half against Barcelona. It is worth mentioning that mistakes have occurred and made the "Master" pay dearly.
In the 17th minute, Jason Denayer fouled a foul on Luis Suarez in the penalty area. Lionel Messi takes on the penalty and his skillful Panenka doesn't give Anthony Lopes the chance to block. In the 31st minute, the Lyon defense trapped the wrong offside, allowing Suarez to break down and have a pass for Philippe Coutinho to double the gap for Barca.
Only 2 goals lost in the first half is still lucky with Lyon. Their Lopes goalkeeper before leaving the field had three blocks of defense and the replacement of Gorgelin also had one phase, most of which were relatively obvious.

The hopes went out
After the break, Lyon calmed down while Barcelona was somewhat sagging. From a chaotic situation in the penalty area, Lucas Tousart quickly shot the ball to shorten the score to 1-2 for the visitors.
From here, Lyon stepped up the position to see. Coach Bruno Genesio, in turn, launched the shots of Bertrand Traore and Maxwel Cornet into the field to enhance firepower. But the risk did not help the "Master" more than the danger in the yard.
Barca vs Lyon Tousart Lyon has only 1 goal removed from Tousart
Raising the squad towards the Barca goal, Lyon could not have any more goals. On the contrary, they constantly endured the next round of threats from the other side. Few of Lyon's defensive players were unable to counter Messi and his team-mates.
Barca's turn into the Lyon net in three rounds from 78 to 86 minutes by Messi, Pique, and Dembele respectively. In the end, the Blaugrana won 5-1 in the second leg and that was the total after 2 matches.
Ronaldo called, Messi answered
On the third night, the whole world had to mention Cristiano Ronaldo with a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid, helping Juventus to go upstream to go into the Champions League quarter-finals. One day later, Lionel Messi, in turn, has the right answer when people wait for most.
The 11th-minute Panenka of Messi 17 minutes helped Barca completely remove psychology. At the last minute, when Lyon came up and the gaps opened, the great number 10 of the Nou Camp grew even more.
Including direct participation in all 3 goals scored last 8 minutes as mentioned above, Messi has a total of 2 goals and 2 assists. Like Ronaldo, El Pulga deserves to receive a score of 10 because of the performance in the second round of the Champions League.
