Ronaldo leads Juve attack, Dybala on bench for Lyon decider

Cristiano Ronaldo will spearhead the Juventus attack as Paulo Dybala starts on the bench for the Italian champions' bid to overturn a 1-0 deficit in Friday's second leg of their Champions League last 16 clash with Lyon.

Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi will support Portuguese star Ronaldo in a 4-3-3 lineup with Dybala out of the starting line-up with a left thigh injury.

Ronaldo was rested in Juventus' final game of the season with Maurizio Sarri's side having wrapped up a ninth consecutive Serie A title with two matches to spare.

Lyon coach Rudi Garcia has opted for Karl Toko-Ekambi over Moussa Dembele to start up front alongside captain Memphis Depay, who has recovered from a serious knee injury, in a 3-5-2 lineup.

Lucas Tousart's goal gave Lyon a surprise 1-0 win in February, but the French midfielder is now at Hertha Berlin.
