Olympique Lyonnais faces Bayern Munich
Olympique Lyonnais faces Bayern Munich at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisboa in the second 1/2-final from the Champions League. We are going to preview this match for you in our football prediction betting tips today which are about to follow.
Olympique Lyonnais are a team which surprised a lot of people in the Champions League this season. In the 1/8-finals Les Gones eliminated one of the biggest favourites for the trophy Juventus, while in the 1/4-finals in Lisboa they did the same with Manchester City. The manager Rudi Garcia and his boys really deserve great attention because of what they managed to do – it’s incredible.
Just like against Juventus, Olympique Lyonnais were underdogs against Manchester City. But the game showed us how good the French team is. Maxwell Cornet opened the score for Lyonnais, but Kevin De Bruyne equalised for City. The conclusion came in the last 11 minutes of the game when Moussa Dembele scored two decisive goals for Les Gones.
At the same time Bayern Munich shocked the world with a groundbreaking 8-2 win against Barcelona in the 1/4-finals. Yes, we must admit that Bayern were favourites before the game, but the truth is nobody really expected to see them scoring 8 goals.
It was one of Bayern Munich’s greatest nights in this club’s history. Hansi Flick’s team brought Barcelona’s biggest humilation in the Catalans’ history. Thomas Muller scored a brace, while Perisic, Gnabry, Kimmich and Lewandowski also scored. The substitution Philippe Coutinho finished the job for Bayern with two goals in the last five minutes.
In our football prediction betting tips today we believe that it’s stupid to talk about favourites and underdogs in this phase of the Champions League. Olympique Lyonnais were labeled underdogs against both Juventus and Manchester City, but you saw what happened. At the same time Bayern Munich are looking incredibly strong at the moment. It must be a great spectacle in Lisboa.
