The Bayern Munich vs. Lyon matchup for Wednesday’s Champions League semifinals match was quite surprising. Bayern Munich demolished Barcelona 8-2 to get here, prompting Barca to change managers and starting rumors that Lionel Messi, the face of the franchise for the last decade-plus, wants to leave. Lyon upset over English powerhouse Manchester City, extending manager Pep Guardiola’s wait for a UCL title into a tenth season.

The winner will face French champions PSG in Sunday’s final. Here’s how to catch the Bayern Munich vs. Lyon live stream.

Bayern Munich vs. Lyon: Preview, starting lineup, odds, injuries

Bayern Munich is a heavy favorite to advance to the UCL Final after impeccable play throughout 2020. Bayern won the Bundesliga again while barely dropping a point this year, and showed its class against Chelsea in the round of 16 and Barcelona in the quarterfinals. Bayern and manager Hansi Flick were favored to win the entire competition before destroying Barca. The German champs’ odds only improved after Manchester City were eliminated.

Lyon has gone on a run for the ages, upsetting Italian champions Juventus, and a loaded Man City squad to get to the semis. The club’s showing fosters a new respect for the resolve and the talent existing in Ligue 1. If Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembele, and company can make it a third upset in a row, it would set up a showdown versus PSG; an all-French UCL Final for the first time in history.
