TURIN – Juventus-Lyon without Lucas Tousart.
The bianconeri can breathe a sigh of relief because the match winner of the first leg will not be there.
In fact Tousart, on January 27, 2020, was purchased by the Germans of Hertha Berlin for 25 million.
Then he remained on loan to Lyon where he will be until June 30 but from July 1 he will move permanently to Germany.
In fact, his experience at Lyon has already ended because the French football championship has been permanently suspended.
Furthermore, Tousart will not be able to play the Champions League return match against Juventus because Juventus will be played in late August.
When Lyon and Hertha Berlin entered into this deal, no one would have imagined a season ending in late August.
So in a normal, pre-coronavirus situation, Tousart would also have played the entire Champions League with Lyon.
So it did not go and Juventus can smile because the French will not have one of the strongest players in the squad.
Below is the Lyon-Juventus 1-0.
Match valid for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
Juventus will have to look for the comeback in the return match which will be played at the Juventus Stadium in Turin behind closed doors.
