Match status: 2019/20 Champions League - Play Offs Semi-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade (Lisbon)
Bayern Munich have been the cream of the crop in the Champions League this season. Their players are in tip-top form and seem to be enjoying every moment on the pitch. Showing pure class in all their games on the continent, they are huge favorites to be crowned European champions.

Having torn through the German Bundesliga, continuing their monopoly of title wins, they went on to secure the DFB Pokal title. Never seemed phased by any side in the league, the Bavarians amassed a staggering 82 points from 34 games to defend the league title.

Now setting their sights on an amazing treble, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men will be harboring hopes of lifting the Champions League trophy for the first time since 2013. If they are to realize these ambitions, Der FCB will need a win against Lyon to advance to the CL finals.

Lyon vs Bayern Munich Team News

Thanks to their resilient displays this season, Lyon have already earned the tag of ‘giant slayers’. Never considered favorites for the latter stages of the Champions League, Les Gones have defied all odds to make it this far in the tournament.

En route to the semifinals, Lyon have been made to dig really deep, facing off some of the best European teams. Pitted against Juventus in the last-16 against Juventus, it appeared Les Gones’ CL journey was finally coming to an end.

However, the players rallied around, showing grit and resilience, to wrestle victory from under the noses of the Bianconeri, who boast of the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo within their ranks. Props to Rudi Garcia for pulling off such a huge upset to advance to the quarterfinals, where they took on Man City.

In a fiercely-contested game in Lisbon, Les Gones took advantage of City’s profligacy to record a historic 3-1 win. Surely, the club supporters will not have recovered from the hangover of that game as they defied all odds to send the Citizens crashing from the competition.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have been tearing through the Champions League this season, just like they have done in the German Bundesliga over the last decade. Impressively, they finished top of Group B, clinching maximum points – the only side to have managed such this season.

On their way to the semifinals, the Bavarians registered huge victories, even against some of the biggest clubs in the world. Smashing Tottenham 7-2 in the group phases, they went on to dismantle Europa League holders Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate, in the last-16 stage.

The highlight of their campaign so far would be the 8-2 drubbing inflicted on Spanish juggernauts Barcelona in the quarterfinals. The Bavarians were on fire on the night, taking the Blaugrana to the cleaners. They looked like scoring every single time they went forward!

Bayern have that drive to go on to lift the Champions League trophy come the end of the season. They are on cloud-9 and are scoring goals for fun. The likes of Alphonso Davies, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski will fancy their chances of having a great game here.
