Real’s arch-rivals Barcelona will be taking on French outfit Lyon, who surprised by many by taking four points from their two games against Manchester City in Group F.English champions City did still top their group, as a result of which they have avoided the cream of the European crop and will face Schalke instead in the last-16.One fixture between two massively-followed clubs, however, will hinge upon an improvement in fortunes for one of the two sides.
