Cristiano Ronaldo went close for Juventus early on but the remainder of the first half was dominated by the home team. Lyon gave warning of their goal threat when Karl Toko Ekambi’s header from Houssem Aouar’s corner struck the bar and they moved deservedly in front in the 31st minute when Lucas Tousart expertly guided in another Aouar cross.

Maurizio Sarri’s men asked more questions of the Lyon defence after the break and Paulo Dybala should have levelled when he miscued past the near post from a low Alex Sandro centre. Substitute Gonzalo Higuaín also fired wide as Juventus mustered just one shot on target all evening.
