What are the Lyon vs Bayern expected line-ups
Lyon: Lopes; Denayer, Marcelo, Marcal; Dubois, Caqueret, Guimaraes, Aouar, Cornet; Depay, Dembele.
Bayern: Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Goretzka,Thiago; Perisic, Muller, Gnabry; Lewandowski.
Lyon have had a tough champions league journey knocking out the competition favourites in Manchester City and Juventus.No one would have expected Lyon to do it not once but twice.
Bayern on the other hand will go into this game knowing they are favourites to win the competition and are willing to score goals like the did against Barcelona.
However,Lyon should make it tough for Bayern to score many goals but would find it hard preventing them to score.
Here’s what both managers had to say
Rudi Garcia, Lyon manager: “You get an appetite while eating. We have this appetite now to get to the final and can do that if we produce a great performance. It depends on Bayern too but we’ll try to impose our qualities. They don’t have weak points but no team is perfect. If we’re able to impose our game and do what we can do in ball possession, with good combinations, we can also achieve something. We have to believe in ourselves.”
Hans-Dieter Flick, Bayern manager: “I am convinced by my team. I am enthusiastic about them as we have a great atmosphere, high quality and high intensity in training. I am relaxed, just because I know my team are well focused and have great objectives. But we all know it is one match which starts at 0-0 and we have to play 90 minutes with the same intensity as we did against Barcelona. We must have the same drive and intensity.”
