Team News

Lyon
Lyon, Dembele will be pushing for inclusion up top after his double from the bench against City, which could mean Karl Toko Ekambi dropping out.

However, Garcia has found a system that works well, with Ekambi and Memphis Depay giving the French side a platform to hit sides on the counter.

Changes are also unlikely to be made anywhere else in the side, meaning that Maxence Caqueret, Bruno Guimaraes and Houssem Aouar will link up in midfield. 


Lyon possible starting lineup:
Lopes; Marcelo, Denayer, Marcal; Dubois, Caqueret, Guimaraes, Aouar, Cornet; Ekambi, Memphis

Lyon Champions League form: WLDWLW
Lyon's form (all competitions): WLLLLW

Bayern Munich
Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard returned to light training on Monday and is back in contention for this semi-final.

However, the versatile Joshua Kimmich has performed well at right-back and Alphonso Davies is arguably the best left-back on the planet right now, so changes are unlikely in that department.

That may also be the case further forward, though Kingsley Coman is pushing for a recall in place of Ivan Perisic, who was one of those on target in the Barca rout.

Robert Lewandowski has scored in eight consecutive Champions League appearances for Bayern – only Ruud Van Nistelrooy in 2003 (9) and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018 (11) have scored in more successive matches in the competition's history.
Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Goretzka, Thiago; Gnabry, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
Bayern Munich's Champions League form: WWWWWW
Bayern Munich's form (all competitions): WWWWWW

Prediction: Lyon 1-3 Bayern Munich
