Olympique Lyon’s Michael Bastos is wary of a Real Madrid backlash at the Santiago Bernabeu, after the Spanish giants were beaten in France in mid-February. The Brazilian however, also believes his side perform best against the stronger teams, and is confident that the Ligue 1 outfit will be able to handle the spirited Los Blancos fight back on the 10th of March.

"Since the beginning of the season we have played well against big teams, and sometimes against small teams we struggle," Bastos said to, agreeing with a statement former team-mate Karim Benzema said. "I agree with Karim; Lyon have talented players who have always performed well against big teams. It might be another story in front of their supporters, in their stadium, and we know that they will be wanting to do well, as we know they kind of blew it (in France)."

Lyon have been in impressive form as of late, winning six of their last seven league matches.
