Lyon won 1-0 the first-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie via a Louis Tousart goal.

The hosts eventually broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark after the unmarked Lucas Tousart steered a strike towards the top corner inside the six-yard box from Houssem Aouar's cut-back on the byline, 1-0.

In comments that could be viewed as refreshingly honest or a risky public criticism of his players, the chain-smoking 61-year-old said that his team were struggling to grasp the concept of passing the ball around quickly - a style dubbed "Sarri-ball" by his admirers. In comparison to his teammates, Bruno completed most passes, most tackles, most interceptions, second-most touches, second-most dribbles, second-best pass completion, and third-most ball recoveries. Given all their attacking threat and the money spent in recent season's Juventus were unable to register a single shot on target in the game and it was the first time since October 2014 when they face Atletico Madrid that the Italians have failed to test the goalkeeper in the Champions League. Lately we're doing a great deal of points contrary to in training.

"We had training yesterday and the ball was moving twice as quickly as it did tonight". In some games, you pay for the tiniest error. Then Alex Sandro tried his luck from distance, but the effort went high and wide.

"Playing in front of our fans in the second leg, it is our obligation to press, push, score, win and qualify for the next stage of the competition".
