After a collision with Barças Philippe Coutinho, Lopes remained dazed on the floor for several minutes. Lyons keeper remained but with visible complaints for the time being in the game.
In a bruised by Suárez (29) Lopes still showed a worth seeing flight parade, before he finally left for Lyons replacement keeper Mathieu Gorgelin the place (34).
