Lyon have woken up a bit, but they're still second best to Real Madrid. They had a decent spell where they made Madrid work for about five minutes, but that five minutes might get all that they get for a long time, and they could very well live to regret not doing anything with their spell of possession.
In the 22nd minute, Aly Cisshoko squared a great ball from the left flank to the top of the penalty area, setting Cesar Delgado up for a shot. Delgado's shot was a decent one and forced a save out of Iker Casillas, but the resulting corner was disappointing. The set piece delivery continued to be a disappointment in the 24th minute, when Yoann Gourcuff somehow failed to get a free kick from 35 yards out into the box. Lyon kept their pressure up through the 26th minute when Sergio Ramos was forced into an awkward clearance of a good cross from Anthony Reveillere, but once again, nothing came of the corner.
The tables turned just after that, when Hugo Lloris was forced into an excellent save on a high shot on target from Cristiano Ronaldo. Angel Di Maria appeared to be making a dangerous run into the box shortly after that, but Dejan Lovren dispossessed him with a crunching tackle that was both very physical and unbelievably, clean. Ricardo Carvalho's tackling seems to be a little less precise, and he was booked for bringing down Delgado in the 30th minute.
