Some brilliant matches could be in store......:)

Lyon is a good draw......

If we play our strongest team and are in good form we should overcome thyem over two legs comfortably.....:)

Arsenal v AC Milan could be a classic......

Could be a tricky one, but no doubt we'll come through this game as winners.

I really hope Inter Knock Liverpuke out.
AC Milan vs Arsenal should be a great game. Pato could finally feature for them as well...can't wait to see him in action.

there is no such thing as an easy game at this stage of the competition.
Agree

But, imo we should qualify.
Hopefully we get a draw atleast in France then get a win at OT.

Lyon are probably the toughest team we could have got but Im not too fussed really. We have to beat the top teams to win the whole thing so I say bring it on.
Compared to Pool and Arsenals draw we are laughing.
Some good games in the draw and Ill be looking forward to the Milans kicking the other English teams out.

Asides from Benzema, Ben Arfa and Juninho, what other good players they got?
Gregory Coupet,Sidney Govou,Kim Kallstrom,Fred,Cristiano Gomes,Mathieu Bodmer,Abdul Kader Keita & Fabio Grosso.

Below is Olympique Lyon's best possible Starting-XI line-up:

------------------------------------Gregory Coupet-------------------------------------

Anthony Reveillere---Cristiano Gomes---Sebastien Squillaci---Fabio Grosso

-------------------Mathieu Bodmer------------Juninho Pernambucano-------------

Hatem Ben Arfa------------------Kim Kallstrom---------------------Sidney Govou

------------------------------------Karim Benzema--------------------------------------

But they also hve the Brazilian striker Fred,possibly the best finisher in their team.
Along with Abdul Kader Keita,I think they will come on as substitute during the game to grab a goal or two for their side. In fact,you hve gotta be proud of them.
They hve lost some of their former key players in the past. Players such as Michael Essien,Eric Abidal,Mahamadou Diarra & Florent Malouda have all gone on to seek greener pastures with other clubs. Imagine they all still playing for Lyon!:eek:
They will be a very strong team indeed!:D

I dunnoe y,but my intuition tells me that Manchester United will grab a draw away @ Stade Gerland, & beat Lyon at Old Trafford. Anyway,I'm sure that United will def' proceed to the quarter-finals. Oh yeah,btw......does anyody knows who will we meet during the quarter-finals? Is it fixed,for eg.(winner of match 49 vs winner of match 48),or another draw?
