Youth League : un gros morceau pour commencer (live audio sur OLTV à 14h)
Just like their first-team counterparts in the Champions League, the OL Academy squad will face Manchester City Wednesday in their first test of the 2018-19 Youth League.

A big challenge awaits OL's Academy stars on Wednesday. A few hours before the first team makes their Champions League debut, the Stéphane Roche and Gilles Rousset-coached squad will face Manchester City at the Academy Stadium - located just a few steps from the Etihad Stadium - in their UEFA Youth League opener.

Lyon return to the Youth League two years after finishing third in the 2016-17 group stage, behind Sevilla and Juventus, but ahead of Dynamo Zagreb (3 wins, 3 losses).

They'll face a Manchester City side that reached the semifinals last year, falling to eventual champions FC Barcelona in a high-scoring 5-4 defeat. Months later, the foundation of the team remains intact while some new players have since joined the fold to make them an even more formidable opponent.





Goalkeepers: Barcola, Margueron.

Defenders: Bard, P. Kalulu, Mayounga, Minolien, Ndicka, Perrier, Solet.

Midfielders: Augarreau, Caqueret, Cherki, Da Silva, Devarrewaere, Rafia, Thomas.

Forwards: Soumaré, Pintor. 








The Match will have live audio commentary, courtesy of Loris Martin and Julien Sokol. 


·         Live audio: coverage begins at 14h00 CET on OLTV.

·         Video replay: at midnight CET on OLTV.
