With the coronavirus taking hold of Italy, in Italian on their big screen Lyon they have posted this message which roughly translates as :

‘Tips for travelers if you are returning from China or an area where the virus is actively circulating.

In case of fever or feeling of fever, cough, breathing difficulties quickly contact the Samu Center 15, reporting the trip. Do not go directly to the doctor or hospital emergency room.

Juventus are flying high in Serie A but face stiff competition from both Lazio and Inter Milan as they look to hang on to their crown once again. 

Lyon, on the other hand, are as low down as seventh in Ligue 1 but they are only six points behind fourth-placed Lille. 

All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo, of course, but it will also be good to see how Manchester United target Moussa Dembele fares against the likes of Matthijs de Ligt and Leonardo Bonucci.   

Lyon will be hoping their main man can perform on the big stage with fellow forward Memphis Depay out injured. 

Lyon XI: Lopes, Marçal, Marcelo, Denayer, Dubois, Tousart, Guimaraes, Aouar, Cornet, Ekambi, Dembele
