Bayern Munich vs. Lyon score: German giants soar into Champions League final; PSG awaits

German giants Bayern Munich are through to the Champions League final following a 3-0 victory against the underdog Lyon on Wednesday. A first-half double from Serge Gnabry and a late header from Robert Lewandowski were the difference in the game.

It was a game of missed chances for Lyon. Early they had two great opportunities to score. One came from Memphis Depay, whose solo run ended with a shot that hit the side netting of goal, and another that came from Karl Toko Ekambi, whose heroic run into the box ended flatly with a wasted shot on target.

A mere 58 seconds after the second missed opportunity — which, in a different universe, could have given the French side a 2-0 lead — Bayern got on the board with a beautiful howler from outside the box by former West Brom man Gnabry. He then followed that up 15 minutes later with a poached goal off a rebounded save. 

Lyon were able to get some domination on the ball in the second half, but the final 45 minutes was where the talent disparity truly showed with a lack of clinical finishing and useful passes to break through Bayern’s defense.

For this German side, it’s a moment of slight redemption as they lost four straight semifinal ties from 2014-2018, and are now back in the Champions League final. The last time they were in this part of the competition was in the 2012-13 season, when they defeated Borussia Dortmund for their fifth European title.

Here’s what to know and see from the 90 minutes on Wednesday.

Top plays

Serge Gnabry does it again
Arsenal and West Brom supporters must be shaking their heads in frustration every time Gnabry does something amazing for Bayern Munich because of what he could have been at their respective clubs. But alas, he’s now in Germany proving himself to be among the best players in the competition. He showed that again Wednesday with an absolute golaso from outside the box that Anthony Lopes had no chance of saving.

Manuel Neuer comes up big
The German giant among the German giants was a huge part of the reason why Lyon was unable to get on the scoresheet Wednesday. His ability to pounce on the ball and apply pressure to the forwards made it life very difficult for them, even if they were on a one-on-one situation with him. The most notable came when Ekambi was in on goal against the German, and he was able to make a heroic save to further frustrate the attacker.

Robert Lewandowski finally gets his
Lewandowski looked to be shut down against Lyon. But that dry spell finally broke in the dying embers of the match when he solidified his side’s victory with a header into the back of the net that gave the Bundesliga side a three-goal lead. The goal also got him to 55 in all competitions this season, which ties Bayern Munich legend Gerd Muller for the most goals in a season by a player in club history.

Notable performances

Let’s rate some of the notable performances on the day, with one being the worst and 10 being perfection:

Serge Gnabry, Bayern Munich
Opened the scoring with a rocket shot and got his second before halftime. Just clinical. His first goal was one of the best of the entire cup. RATING: 9

Manuel Neuer, Bayern Munich
Made some really important saves including in the second half when Lyon were trying to get back into the game. Just stellar. RATING: 8

Memphis Depay, Lyon
Had a fantastic chance four minutes in and missed. Taken off in second half. Just looked outmatched against Bayern’s patient defense. RATING: 4

A look ahead

Bayern will now face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final taking place on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.

BALL - Barcelona say goodbye to the Spanish Cup (Spain)

Athletic Bilbao will move forward in the Copa del Rey after a 3-2 home win over Barcelona after a tight game that was only resolved in extra time (2-2 after 90 minutes).

Cathedral there was a scene of great play, blessed with rain, when the players at home showed early what they were going to do: two minutes later, Iker Muniain delivered a superb cross from Nico Williams at speed to the right of the attack, which, shall we say, during the game was Jordi Alba’s headache.

Barcelona reacted well, and in the middle of the first half equalized with Ferran Torres – he made his debut by scoring in the second game for blue grain – Busquets pass, Xavi’s only dangerous game for the entire first half, although he had more possession of the ball (63.6%).

In the second half, the game was more balanced, but At Bilbao continued to be the sharpest team in attack, and in the 87th minute, Íñigo Martinez took advantage of the rebound in the penalty area. The fans were already celebrating when Pedri poured a bucket of cold water over their heads, restoring the tie at 90+3 minutes and sending the game into extra time.

With an extra half hour, aside from blaming the players for physical fatigue, given the intensity of the 90-minutes, neither team seemed willing to take the risk. But for the third time in the match “At” from Bilbao took the lead: Iker Muniain converted a penalty (105+2′), punishing the hand of Jordi Alba. Barça were still drawing their last breath, but the history of the game had already been written.

Thus, Atlético Bilbao joins Real Madrid, Mallorca, Rayo Vallecano, Valencia, Betis, Real Sociedad and Cadiz in the group of teams that have already reached the quarter-finals.
