After humbling Manchester City with an impressive 3-1 win, Ligue 1 side Lyon face a quick turnaround against Barcelona's conquerors Bayern Munich. Hansi Flick watched his ruthless Bavarians dismantle a dishevelled Barca with a record-breaking 8-2 thrashing last week.

They're firmly favourites to book their place in Sunday's final, but are their French opposition capable of another surprise here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lyon vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips

Moussa Dembélé was Lyon's hero off the substitutes' bench against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City on Saturday evening.

Four minutes after replacing captain Memphis Depay, he helped them retake their slender lead – albeit in controversial circumstances. VAR review didn't overturn his strike, which trickled in off Ederson's outstretched leg, but there was more drama to come.

A minute after Raheem Sterling's open goal miss at one end, Houssem Aouar's curling effort was catastrophically fumbled by Ederson. Dembele, in the right place at the right time, gleefully tucked away the rebound from close-range.

After a matchwinning brace, it's likely Rudi Garcia will start him ahead of Karl-Toko Ekambi in attack here. They'll need all the help they can get against a Bayern side who are more than comfortable outscoring their opposition.

They were 4-1 up at half-time against an out-of-sorts Barcelona display, who was only worsened once Philippe Coutinho was introduced. On-loan from Barca, the creative midfielder assisted Robert Lewandowski to make it 6-2 before piling on more misery with a well-taken brace late on.

It's likely the Brazilian will also start, presumably ahead of Ivan Perisic, in a match that Bayern cannot afford to lose.

They're still unbeaten in Europe's elite club competition this season. Although they won't overlook Lyon, a first UCL final since beating Dortmund at Wembley in 2012-13 is 90 minutes away.

Lyon vs Bayern Munich Correct Score Predictions

Lyon will again relish their role as underdogs here but it's difficult to see Bayern adopting a similar conservative approach. They've overachieved expectations to reach this season's semi-finals and unfortunately, the Bundesliga champions should end that run here.
