🇫🇷 Lyon vs 🇩🇪 Bayern Munich Preview and Prediction
French juggernauts Lyon and German champions Bayern collide in the Champions League for the first time in a decade on Thursday morning AEST, with the winner to advance into the final against PSG.
Lyon have already pulled off a couple of seismic upsets in order to reach their first semi-final since 2010, conquering Juventus over two legs before a lethal and late counter-attacking display handed them a 3-1 win over Man City last weekend.
Maxwel Cornet continued his rich vein of goal scoring form against the Cityzens, while Moussa Dembele was on hand to grab a brace in the final 15 minutes.
However, Lyon will need to tighten up defensively if they are going to have any chance of producing another upset against a rampant Bayern outfit.
The German heavyweights have been on fire under the tutelage of Hansi Flick, comprehensively wrapping up the Bundesliga title before going on a tear in the Champions League knockout stages, knocking off Chelsea by a 7-1 aggregate scoreline before intimidating 8-2 demolition of Barcelona.
Boom Canadian youngster Alphonso Davies has rapidly transformed into one of the world’s leading fullbacks, while veterans Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are scoring goals for fun.
It’s almost impossible to go against Bayern after their blitz of Barcelona. They’ve lost their last four Champions League semi-final ties, but this is a fantastic chance to snap that streak – and I get the feeling Lyon have already played their finals against Juve and City.
