Bayern Munich won 3-0 against Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League semi-final. The Bavarians face PSG on Sunday in the final.
The Lyon epic ends in the Champions League semi-final. The Olympics could not do anything on August 19 against Bayern Munich, who maintained their favorite ranking in the competition. Winners 3 to 0 thanks to a double play from Gnabry and a goal from Lewandowsky, Bavaria will find PSG for a top final on Sunday in Lisbon.
Lyon had still put in their match perfectly. On a ball recovered in the middle of the field, Caqueret throws Memphis Depay into the deep. The captain collided between Jérôme Boateng and David Alaba and came to the right of the area where he struck with his right foot. The ball lands in the small right net while Neuer is hit (4e).
The Dutchman is untenable at the beginning of the match and calls more depths. On one of them he manages to cross the far end but Toko-Ekambi is too short to get his head back (12e). Moments later, the Cameroonian found the post for Neuer (17e).
Lyon will bite their fingers. In the continuation of the plot, Gnabry is the author of a small number in the heart of the Lyon defense and then clears the window to Anthony Lopes with a powerful strike (18e1-0).
Lyon lowers its head
A goal that completely demobilizes Lyonnais, who are rooted in their camp. However, Bayern fish in goal and miss several opportunities to worsen the score. Up to 33e Min.27, ‘failed chance, kick of Lewandowski at a cross coming in from the right … But Serge Gnabry, again,e2-0).
In retrospect at the end of the first half, the Olympics returned to the field with better intentions. If Bayern seem to be above average, Lyonnais repeatedly fails to return to the game. After a favorable counter, Houssem Aouar offered caviar to Karl Toko-Ekambi but the latter crushed his shot too much to fool Neuer (58e). Newcomers Rayan Cherki, Moussa Dembélé and Jeff Reine-Adélaïde offer their rebellion of energy to their teammates. In vain.

Clumsy during the last gesture of the second half, and the Germans finished their third goal. On a corner, the inevitable Lewandowski flies over the defense to fool Anthony Lopes and make his 15e Champions League goals. It’s just two units from the post office.
There will therefore be no French-French final on Sunday, but a third and final French-German duel to end the “Final 8” in Lisbon. The Olympics, for its part, may have regrets. Lyonnaisses will be absent from European competitions for the first time since 1996-1997.
