Speaking on L’Équipe d’Estelle, ex-Lyon and current Beijing Guoan boss Bruno Genesio backed OL to triumph over Manchester City in their Champions’ League quarter-final on Saturday night.
“It seems unbalanced because City have an extraordinary team, with a coach who is one of the best three in the world. On top of that, this is all they have left in their season as they did not win the Premier League title. There is around an 80% chance that City qualify. You need a lot of things in a match like this. You have to be ready physically, tactically, technically, mentally, and you also need a bit of luck. It is possible, even though it will be very difficult for Lyon.”
