Lyon looks to set up all-Ligue 1 UEFA Champions League Final, but it is Bayern Munich that is heavily favored. Lyon vs Bayern Munich starts at 3 p.m. EDT.
With PSG’s stunning UEFA Champions League romp Tuesday over RB Leipzig, there is the prospect of two mouth-watering finals on tap.
If heavily favored Bayern Munich can beat Lyon Wednesday, it sets the prospect of the two best teams in the world going head-to-head for the title.
If Lyon manages to pull off a third-straight upset (Juventus, Manchester City), there will be two French Ligue 1 teams in the Final for the first time ever. The last team a French team even made a final was 2004 (when Monaco lost to Porto 3-0), and the only French winner came in 1992-93 when Marseille beat Milan 1-0.
The high line Bayern Munich plays at the back could end up hurting the German side at some point, especially against the Lyon counter attack.
I just don’t see Lyon having enough to outscore Bayern Munich.
