Valverde and Busquests: 'hungry and ready for Lyon test'

A key moment A key moment

However, it was the Uruguayan who disappointed the most, continuing his abysmal away streak in the competition.

While a goalless draw away from home isn't the worst result in the world and Barcelona will be confident they can progress at Camp Nou, a draw could suit Lyon.

Lopes beat Messi's angled shot away to keep his side level before Dembele was replaced by Philippe Coutinho, who had a clear chance in the 76th but was denied by in-form Lopes.

"We are strong at home, but 0-0 is a risky result for the second leg", said Valverde.

Barcelona recently received a bit of good news with the return of center-back Samuel Umtiti (knee), but he may not start, and fellow defender Thomas Vermaelen (muscle) has already been ruled out.

Suarez, who was rested for the large part against Real Valladolid at the weekend - had failed to score in 16 games in the Champions League away from home - scoring last against AS Roma in September 2015. It just wasn't our night.

Bruno Genesio's team had taken four points from a possible six against Manchester City in the group stage and recently won at home to Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.

But Lyon gave as good as they got before half-time and produced the two best chances of the half, first when Aouar's fizzing low effort was kept out by Ter Stegen's dive, before the goalkeeper produced true heroics to get fingertips to Terrier's dipping shot from 25 yards.

Lyons were lively in the first half but ran out of steam after...

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde felt his side's performance in the goalles draw with Lyon was positive but he was left frustrated at a failure to score.

"It's a satisfying result because it leaves us with a chance for the second leg, and we didn't concede".

Both Liverpool versus Bayern Munich and Lyon against Barcelona ended deadlocked at 0-0, despite the two games seeing a combined 54 attempts on goal between them.

But for Champions League fans expecting some goal-filled action, they were left pondering a night to forget. Barcelona are heavy -800 favorites in their match-up against Lyon.

He added: "I am not happy with the result, but I am happy with the performance and with what we created".
