LYON 0-0 BAYERN MUNICH

1: PEEP! And we’re underway at an empty Estadio Jose Alvalade stadium. Could be an interesting night – could also be an absolute thrashing. We’re about to find out! It’s Germany vs France for the second night running…

Hansi Flick

Bit more pragmatic from Hansi Flick. Naturally.

“Less than 100 per cent will not be enough,” he said. “The game starts from scratch. My team is focused. We have set big goals.

“But it is a game starting at 0-0 and we have to play with the same intensity as against Barca.”

Rudi

Lyon’s head coach Rudi Garcia is… well he’s come out with some wonderful stuff this week.

“We might be the underdogs but we beat big teams to get there and others may start taking us seriously,” he told reporters.

“Maybe we’re not a big mountain to climb but sometimes just a little pebble in your shoe can prevent you from climbing that little mountain.”

I think we should book this fella for some motivational speaking.

Team news

There is none.

Both managers, unsurprisingly, field the same starting XI’s who won their last fixtures. The competition’s leading scorer Robert Lewandowski is in attendance with Thomas Muller in just behind. Karl Toko Ekambi partners Memphis Depay in attack for Lyon.

Twitter round-up

Fred: LYON WILL KNOCK MIGHTY BAYERN MUNICH OUTTA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE BOOKMARK THIS TWEET.

Martin: If Lyon beat Bayern tonight I’m going to run around town with nothing but a Lyon crest painted onto me.

Micco: If Bayern Munich won 4-1 against Chelsea, then 8-2 against Barcelona, does that mean we’ll beat Lyon 16-4?

Strange bunch of Tweets tonight, lads. But Micco… OBVIOUSLY that’s true. Duh.

Starting XI

The team news arrives. Moussa Dembele remains on the bench despite a brace off the bench against Manchester City. 

Bayern Munich XI: Neuer, Kimmich, Boateng, Alaba, Davies, Thiago, Goreztka, Gnabry, Muller, Perisic, Lewandowski.

Subs: Ulreich, Hoffmann, Odriozola, Sule, Pavard, Martinez, Coutinho, Cuisance, Hernandez, Tolisso, Coman, Zirkzee.

Lyon XI: Lopes, Dubois, Denayer, Marcelo, Marçal, Cornet, Caqueret, Guimaraes, Aouar, Toko-Ekambi, Depay.

Subs: Tatarusanu, Diomande, Andersen, Rafael, Dembele, Traore, Mendes, Reine-Adelaide, Jean Lucas, Tete, Bard, Cherki.

The underdogs…

Perhaps it’s a bit disrespectful for the bookies to have Lyon as 9/1 underdogs this evening – but I can understand why.

Rudi Garcia replaced Sylvinho as manager two months into the season, the club finished outside the European qualification places and they are playing the most in-form side in Europe.

But… Lyon have overcome their status as pre-match betting outsiders in four of their last five Champions League victories.

They’ve also got lethal duo Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay on their books.

Upset on the cards?

Evening…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Lyon vs Bayern Munich from Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon.

No, I’m not enjoying the 27 degree weather in Portugal this evening – I’m basking in the light drizzle that Kent is serving up. What a treat.

Tonight is the second Champions League semi-final to determine who will play Paris Saint-Germain in Sunday’s grand finale.

Surprise package Lyon beat Italian champions Juventus and Manchester City to reach this stage, while Bayern Munich humiliated Barcelona.

In fact, Bayern have crushed everyone they’ve faced in Europe this season by an aggregate score of 39-8.

Should be a decent evening by my calculations. Standby for team news and line ups.
