class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Bundesliga champions are the favourites to lift the Champions League and Goal is backing them to reach the final for the first time since 2013
Bayern Munich will be hoping to avoid an upset when they face Lyon in the Champions League semi-final at Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon.
The Bundesliga champions have been imperious in the tournament this season, trouncing Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals to take their tally to 39 goals in just nine games.
Lyon have been underdogs in the knockout stages so far but have certainly proved their value by beating Juventus on away goals and Manchester City 3-1.

Bayern have won their last 19 games in all competitions and are 2/9 (1.22) favourites with bet365 to reach the Champions League final for the first time in seven years.

The online bookmaker offers Lyon as massive 9/1 (10.0) underdogs to reach their maiden European final, having also reached the semi-finals of this tournament in 2009-10 when they lost 4-0 to Bayern on aggregate.
A draw would see the tie go into extra time and possibly penalties; that scenario is priced at 13/2 (7.50) by bet365.
Lyon vs Bayern Munich Team News
Benjamin Pavard is in contention for Bayern after returning to training this week, but may have a hard time displacing Joshua Kimmich at right back.
Moussa Dembele scored twice off the bench in Lyon’s victory over Man City and will be hoping for a starting berth this time around.
Lyon vs Bayern Munich Preview
Bayern Munich have been absolutely dominant in the Champions League this season with nine wins from nine games, netting 39 goals on the way with Robert Lewandowski responsible for 14 of those.
Following their 8-2 demolition of Barcelona and a 7-1 aggregate victory over Chelsea, the Bundesliga side are now just six behind equalling Barcelona’s record of 45 goals in a single campaign – which came across 16 matches.
Lyon will not be a pushover for Bayern, considering the Ligue 1 side stunned Juventus and Man City so far, scoring five goals across those matches, but their record of just two clean sheets does not bode well against such a fearsome attack.
Lyon vs Bayern Munich Tips and Predictions
Bayern are seemingly unstoppable right now and should not be opposed, but with just three clean sheets to their name in their last 10 matches, the best value comes in the 13/10 (2.30) price from bet365 on the German side to win but concede in Lisbon.
