Lyon’s campaign in the Champions League this season was a success because of the amazing form of Memphis Depay. However, he is out for the season with an ACL injury, so Lyon has to rely on their other young stars such as Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele to step up their game. Lyon barely made it past the group stages but they made it because of a 2-2 draw against RB Leipzig in the final matchday. It was Depay who scored the equalizer, which shows how much he really means to Lyon this season. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Lyon has not defeated Juventus in European competition. They have one draw and three losses.
