A wonderful morning to you all, as we check out the results of the football matches, played yesterday Wednesday August 19, 2020
Bayern Munich secured a 3-0 win against Lyon to set up a Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain who also defeated RB Leipzig the day before yesterday.
Bayern Munich reached their 11th Champions League final thanks to a brilliant victory over Lyon. Serge Gnabry was the star of the match, scoring a brace while Robert Lewandowski also got on the score sheet to score his 15th Champions League goal of the season.
Lyon could have taken the lead earlier on, but Memphis Depay failed to convert a presented chance that could have taken the game in a different direction.
Lyon were punished for that chance and several others as Bayern became merciless, scoring three times to pave their way into the final of the competition where they will face Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday.
Serge Gnabry has now scored 23 goals in all competitions this season while Robert Lewandowski has scored 55 goals in all competitions this campaign, 15 of those came in the Champions League, just two short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of the highest goals in a Champions League season.
The Bavarians have scored 42 goals so far this season and the win yesterday was their 10th consecutive Champions League win.
Kudos to Lyon reaching this stage despite finishing well outside of top-four in Ligue 1 this season. Ligue 1 was actually cancelled at a stage due to coronavirus.
Bayern Munich will now face Paris Saint-Germain in the final of this season’s Champions League with both teams trying to fight for the last competition of the season having won all of the competitions they both have fixtured in this season. It’s going to be the survival of the fittest, little details will most probably decide the match, fingers crossed, we will get to watch an exciting encounter.
