Lyon vs Bayern Munich, UEFA Champions League, semi-final: Where to get live streaming in India
German behemoths Bayern Munich lock horns against French giant-killers Lyon in the UEFA Champions League semi-final. Watch Lyon vs Bayern Munich live.
Having dismantled Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 8-2 in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Bayern Munich will look to carry forward the momentum when they face Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) in the semi-final at Lisbon on Thursday. The match can be seen live in India.
Reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern, however, will be wary of the French side who have quite rightfully earned the giant-killers tag in this edition of the UCL. Watch live streaming of the Lyon vs Bayern Munich fixture.
The Ligue 1 club has had some major scalps this season, knocking out Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus in the Round-of-16 and then doing the same to a Pep Guardiola-coached Manchester City side in the quarter-finals last week.
Striker Moussa Dembele was the star of the show against City, bagging a brace to help Lyon best the former Premier League champions. These were the Frenchman’s first goals in this edition of the Champions League.
Dembele rediscovering his scoring touch will be a big boost for Lyon coach Rudi Garcia, who will be hoping Dembele’s partnership with former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay can cut through Bayern’s formidable defence.
Lyon, however, will need to keep it tight at the back up against Bayern’s abundance of attacking talents, spearheaded by Robert Lewandowski – currently the top scorer in Champions League 2019-20 with 14 goals.
The likes of Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, Ivan Perisic and Philippe Coutinho are also in good form.
The winner of the match will face either RB Leipjig or Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the final next Monday.
