Since their 8-2 win over Barcelona in the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich have sent shockwaves across the football world and have set tongues wagging as the favourites for the continental trophy, but ‘it’s not yet uhuru’, there is still a Paris Saint-Germain to contend with.
On Sunday August 23, PSG and Bayern will be seeking to cap their season with the Champions Leaguetrophy at the Estadio da Luz, in Portugal.
PSG secured their ticket into the final after a comfortable 3-0 win over RB Leipzig on Tuesday. They are seeking to complete a quadruple of trophies in the 2019-20 season (having also claimed Ligue 1, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue).
Bayern Munich’s numbers, Lyon Manager Rudi Garcia had said, were so intimidating that they were best ignored. Unbeaten since early December. Flawless, with not so much as a point dropped, in 19 consecutive games. Scoring goals at an eye-watering rate.
“If we just look at the statistics,” Garcia had said before Lyon faced Bayern in the Champions League semifinal on Wednesday night in Lisbon, “we might as well watch the game in the hotel.”
Lyon could not, in the end, stop Bayern’s big red machine from rolling on to its first Champions League final since winning the competition in 2013. Two goals from Serge Gnabry — the first a bone-shaking finish from the edge of the penalty area, the second a scrappy tap-in — effectively settled the game before halftime. Robert Lewandowski, scoring his 55th goal of the season and his 15th in this season’s Champions League, added a third on a header in the 88th minute.
