Lyon coach Rudi Garcia excited by Man City, Real Madrid carrot

Lyon coach Rudi Garcia has welcomed their exciting Champions League draw.

Should they overcome Juventus in the round of 16, OL will meet the winner of Manchester City against Real Madrid in the quarterfinal.

Garcia told L'Equipe: “I followed the draw. If we ever qualify, it's a royal draw, an incredible road to travel but oh so exciting.

"On paper, it's the Champions League that we love. We already don't need extra motivation to face Juventus.

"But, it's even more beautiful to know that if we pass, we will play these teams."
