"A master stroke" headlines L'Equipe . This is how we should qualify Lyon's performance on Wednesday, before "a harmless Juve" nevertheless tempers Kicker . An achievement, especially a surprise, as the European press agrees. "Lyon surprised Juventus Turin at Groupama Stadium where the theoretical superiority of Juventus was never reflected" analyzes Mundo Deportivo when Marca evokes an OL which "despairs Juve and Cristiano", a "Juve eaten by a Lyon without its fangs ”, referring to the injuries of Memphis Depay and Jeff-Reine Adelaide. "Juve's hopes have been taken a blow" and the Old Lady "is before a big battle" for the return concludes the Guardian . In short, a "sacred evening for Lyon!" as perceived by Eurosport .
The Lyon environment covered with praise

While he will join Germany and Hertha Berlin at the end of the season (he is on loan to Lyon until June). "Tousart rewards Lyon" underlines Kicker , when Bild raises "the future Hertha player as a Lyon hero" after "a very big performance." At his side, the other circles shone. Aouar, decisive passer for the latter and elected man of the match, in the first place. "Aouar pulled the strings in the middle" for the BBC and "proves worthy of all the attention devoted to it by the great Europeans" approves La Gazzetta dello Sport . In the same spirit, the rookie Bruno Guimaraes, who “taped the Groupama Stadium” like our special envoys, was described as “conductor by ESPN. A Lyonnais midfield which reigned over his adversary and which validated the choices of revenge Rudi Garcia (he always finished behind Juventus during his time at Roma) and undermined those of Maurizio Sarri for Corriere dello Sport: Revenge is a dish that can be eaten cold and Rudi Garcia took advantage of the midfielder completely out of touch with Maurizio Sarri. ” Opposite, it is the loneliness of Cristiano Ronaldo which is highlighted. "Cristiano was abandoned" for La Gazetta dello Sport, "was not enough" for Marca . "The Martian therefore came back down to earth for an evening," concludes Tuttosport , while adding that the Portuguese "was the only Juventus player to create breaches in the defense of Lyon."
