Just wanted to see what everyone thought of the possibility of Lyon winning the CL this year? They have a great team on paper, look to be in good form, and have played well domestically and in Europe this year.


What do you think?

They have a good team and it wouldn't surprise me if they won. I haven't seen any team dominate in the CL this season, or atleast not yet.

You must say that they sure are a Dark House for the CL. Lyon is a solid club who have had success in Ligue 1 for the past four years, and they have a tough defense and many weapons in attack. If Lyon can avoid the likes of Milan and Chelsea, they have a very good chance of going far in the CL, possibly even winning the competiton. But I think it all depends on the draw.

They're a very good team, but they're not one of the big guns yet, how far they go depends on who they draw in the next rounds, but I would like them to go as far as possible unless they play Madrid of course.

didnt Lyon lose out last year in the quarters because of Porto's diving and dirty play?

And Lyon have scored the most goals in the current CL. They sure know how to score. They have to defend well to go till the last stage.

After what happened in last season's UCL and in Euro 2004, we shouldn't dismiss the possibility of an "underdog" winning the UCL. Lyon are a very good team and play very good Football, so it's definitely possible.

What I meant is that Porto relied on cheating in the semifinal against La Coruna.
Maybe they also did that against Lyon (didn't watch it live so I don't recall) but they also played good football against Lyon.

I don't think Lyon will win it this year, i think they'll be stopped in the quarters, but they might make it to the semis.

Juninho Pernambucano is a magician, better than most playmakers that get all the recognition. Diarra too is classy, as is Govou and Nilmar. A CL win by Lyon wouldn't really shock me that much, they have some amazing players.
