Lyon vs Bayern Munich Live Stream: Bayern Munich and Lyon will meet in the UEFA Champions League semifinals Wednesday with a spot in Sunday’s final vs. PSG on the line. Bayern are coming off of the 8-2 trashing of Lionel Messi and Barcelona, entering this game as the heavy favorite, while Lyon is full of confidence after knocking out Manchester City in the quarterfinals with a shock 3-1 victory.
Bayern Munich: Lyon’s defense was so good against City, and Bayern can learn from it. Those quick passes in the final third diagonally can cause Lyon some trouble. Bayern will get their chances, there is no doubt, but in defense they will need to avoid making the same mistakes City did — which are turning the ball over in the middle with risky passes and holding such a high line.
Lyon: After visiting upset city in the win over Pep Guardiola’s team, there is a ton of confidence in this side. Moussa Dembele probably starts here after getting those two crucial goals off the bench. He and Memphis Depay can do damage, but Lyon must play smart in the middle and cut off passing lanes. Bayern is so creative and Lyon cannot afford to make even one tiny mistake.
After an unbelievable victory against Barcelona in the quarterfinals, Bayern Munich will look to produce a similar show when they face Lyon in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
This will be the ninth competitive meeting between the two sides, where Bayern Munich have won four of their previous outings. The winner of this clash will be facing Paris Saint-Germain in the finals.
