Manchester City have long coveted the UEFA Champions League title, and the Man City vs. Lyon live stream today (Sat., August 15) will show if the English side can take a big step toward finally lifting the trophy. Yes, it's almost time for Man City to face Olympique Lyonnais in the quarterfinals of this year's tournament. And while Man City will be heavily favored, Lyon won't be a pushover in this do-or-die match.

After all, Man City have never beaten Lyon in the Champions League, drawing one match and losing the other at home when the two sides faced each other in the 2018-19 tournament. And this one-off game will be played behind closed doors in Portugal, with no second leg. That means the winner advances to next week's Champions League semifinals.
