Kwadwo Asamoah and Juan Cuadrado battle in the Round of 16. Juve faces Lyon next week in the first leg of the quarterfinal.

On Thursday, Juventus and Olympique Lyonnais will come together for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tilt.

Juve and Lyon are two of the strongest teams left in the competition and their quarter-final has all the makings of becoming the tie of the round.

Juve enter the Lyon game off the back of a hotly-contested round of 16 tie with Fiorentina. The Bianconeri came out on top 2-1 on aggregate after Andrea Pirlo's free kick won the second leg 1-0. OL had taken a commanding lead in their previous Europa League matchup against Viktoria Plzen before the Serbians scored two quick-fire goals to make things a bit more interesting. Despite this, the French team eased through 5-3.

What can be expected of this matchup? Will Juve continue to march towards a home final, or will OL pull an upset and knock the Italians out?

Let's take a closer look at the two legs of the tie to see which of these two powers will progress.
