The Catalan giants will go into the match with another potential problem tonight, however, which has to do with the New Champions League Rule.

That is VAR. VAR will be used in the Champions League knockout stages for the first time after UEFA's Executive Committee approved the deployment of the system back in December.

According to The Express, there are four ways VAR can be used – and four things Barca fans should be mindful of against Lyon.

It can be utilised to assess whether a goal should stand.

It can also be used to get a closer look at incidents in the penalty area.

VAR can also be applied for red cards and, in rare cases, mistaken identity.

Should the situation relate to any one of the above four incidents, the referee can use VAR to change the game.

The La Liga giants have scored just twice from their last three outings against Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Valladolid respectively.

But, speaking ahead of tonight's game with Lyon, Valverde said: “Everyone has their own opinion.

“Perhaps we have not created many chances in some games, but we are clearly an attacking team.

“I do not have a lot to say, we will see tomorrow.”
