Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are set to go head-to-head in the UEFA Champions League Final on Sunday evening.
Olympique Lyon’s campaign in the UEFA Champions League came to an end in the semi-final after Bayern Munich claimed a 3-0 win to progress to the final hurdle and set up an enticing affair against Paris Saint-Germain. Serge Gnabry scored twice in the first half and was joined by Robert Lewandowski, whose 15th European goal of the season was his 55th across all competitions.
Even though the score-line made the match look one sided, it certainly was not as the French giants had a fair share of chances. Nevertheless, it will be either the French or German champions who win the treble in what is certain to be a historic season. Here is a look at the three talking points from the fixture.
LYON ARE LEFT TO RUE THEIR MISSED CHANCES
Lyon had an ample number of chances and could’ve easily been two or three to the good in the first few minutes. Karl Toko Ekambi and Memphis Depay missed a handful which should’ve put Rudi Garcia’s men up. Against teams like Bayern Munich, one simply cannot afford to miss chance after chance, but Lyon did.
Gnabry struck for Bayern first with a sublime solo goal in which the entire defence was undone. Ever since conceding first, the French looked like second favourites. Not too late on, the German hit another one before Robert Lewandowski sealed the game some minutes from time with a good header.
