LYON (FRANCE) – A date for the recovery of the Juventus-Lyon Champions League has not yet been made official .
Unlike what was stated at first by the president of Lyon Aulas who had spoken of August 7.
This is specified by the French company itself through this press release.
" Olympique Lyon states that: the date of the Juventus-Lyon match, valid for the Champions League knockout phase, has not yet been set contrary to what was previously indicated.
The date of the round of 16 must be set as part of the final program of the Champions League tournament .
The date will be announced directly by UEFA shortly.
The OL is also looking forward to the Coupe de la Ligue final .
It will probably be played in early August.
This will allow us, unlike other teams, to prepare this essential game of the season .
However , Lyon regrets having to struggle with a preparation different from that of its European competitors , who have already resumed training ".
The Lyon president said: "The recovery against Juventus will be played on August 7".
Lyon had to publish this press release a few hours after the statements made by its president .
“The match against Juventus is confirmed for 7 August , in Turin and behind closed doors .
If the appeal to cancel the Ligue 1 stop fails, there will be trouble.
Olympique Lyon and PSG will be massacred by teams that will have a physical preparation that we will not have.
It is inevitable . "
