Stalemates in Lyon & Anfield

Hosts Olympique Lyonnais and Liverpool were unable to make home advantage count against Barcelona and Bayern Munich, respectively, in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 First Leg ties.

At the Lyon Olympic Stadium in France, both sides had numerous chances to win the contest but Barcelona were ultimately denied by the fantastic Anthony Lopes in goal for the hosts.

Despite an impressive display of attacking football from both teams, only a brave person would bet against Barcelona finding the net at the Camp Nou next month.

Meanwhile at the Anfield Stadium, Bayern Munich put in a resolute defensive display against Liverpool to take a 0-0 draw away.

The hosts were on top in the first half and typically threatening in transition, but Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Joël Matip all spurned chances, leaving the tie perfectly balanced ahead of the second leg at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
