“There’s something a bit different when you prepare for a Champions League game. Every coach at every team feels it, given how important the competition is and the prestige it has. Some big teams have been knocked out and anything can happen. We know how good Lyon are – they have some powerful players, especially in midfield and going forward. But we are ready to do our job, knowing we have our supporters behind us,” Ernesto Valverde, Barcelona

“We have to play our own game, with freedom. We know it will be difficult against one of the best teams in the world, but we know we can do it because we have [won at Manchester City on matchday one]. We must show we belong at this level. Ajax’s result [against Real Madrid] gives us strength. Many things depend on Messi. We will develop a game plan to reduce his influence, but we must be able to take calculated risks. We must be prepared to suffer,” Bruno Genesio, Lyon
