Lyon face Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday night. The French outfit caused upsets by knocking out Juventus and Manchester City, while Bayern have been in imperious form, winning 27 of their last 28 fixtures.

Olympique Lyon Form & News


Olympique Lyon sat in fourth spot when Ligue 1 was cancelled due to the coronavirus. Rudi Garcia’s side took PSG to penalties in the French League Cup final, but ultimately lost.

Lyon were beaten 2-1 by Juventus in the Round of 16 second leg of the UEFA Champions League, but advanced thanks to the away goals rule.

The French side were not given much of a chance against Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the competition, but came away with an incredible 3-1 victory. Maxwel Cornet scored one and substitute Moussa Dembele bagged a brace.

Lyon left-back Youssouf Kone is injured and midfielder Lucas Tousart was sold to Hertha Berlin.

Rudi Garcia has been playing with three at the back which should continue in Lisbon. 

Moussa Dembele proved a point with two goals off the bench against Man City. He has surely done enough to start at Karl Toko Ekambi’s expense.

Bayern Munich Form & News


Bayern Munich claimed a domestic double after winning the Bundesliga and the German Cup. Hansi Flick’s charges have been exceptional, winning their last 19 fixtures across the board.

The Bavarians smashed Wolfsburg 4-0 in their final Bundesliga game. They then beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 in the DFB-Pokal final and smashed Chelsea 4-1 in the UEFA Champions League to progress 7-1 on aggregate.

Bayern then pulled off the result of all results. They humiliated Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals. Thomas Müller (2), Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski and Philippe Coutinho (2) got the goals on what was an historical night.

Right-back Benjamin Pavard remains injured. Robert Lewandowski has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals in his last nine matches and 55 for the season.

Expect to see no changes to Flick’s starting XI.
