Lyon vs Bayern Munich is the second of this season’s Champions League semifinals (Wednesday 18 August). Lyon were many people’s idea of the complete outsiders at the last-16 stage, but the French side have proved they have a fair mix of defensive and attacking talents by overcoming Juventus and Manchester City in the last two rounds.
Lyon must now take on the might of Bayern Munich and, while that may prove a step too far, they have nothing to lose by having a go at a German defence whose job is to let in less goals than Bayern’s awesome attacking line-up scores.
Bayern should win, but odds of 1/4 (1.25) make no appeal. Equally, even 11/1 (12.00) for a Lyon win isn’t big enough to tempt me to put them up to pull off a shock win. That’s why playing the goal markets looks the best call, with over 3.5 goals being our Lyon vs Bayern Munich tip.
Bayern did keep three clean sheets against the two poorer teams in their group, but there were also at least four goals in four of those matches. They also scored four past Chelsea in Germany in the last-16, while their 8-2 win over Barcelona in the quarterfinals will live long in the memory.
Lyon aren’t expected to prove as poor in defence as Barcelona, but they are vulnerable to a top-class attack, as when losing 1-5 at home to PSG. It’s hard to see them keeping Bayern out for long but they should also get lots of chances at the other end. They proved against Manchester that they can take those chances and they have only failed to score once in the Champions League this season.
Lyon have also scored in 16 of their last 18 matches in all competitions and are fancied to play their part in a match that produces more than its fair share of goals. That’s why our Lyon vs Bayern Munich tip is more than 3.5 goals.
