21:51 

So it's Bayern v PSG in the 2020 Champions League final! It's easy to make a case for other side winning, but I've not a clue! Thanks for your company, and night-night.

21:50

Full-time: Lyon 0-3 Bayern Munich

90+2'

Coman jinks down the right and cuts back for Tolisso, who turns powerfully around the near post.

90+1' 

3-0 sounds like a hiding - ultimately it is a hiding - but Lyon could have made this a classic. Even if they'd taken one of the chances they've made, that would've made a difference.

90' 

There'll be three added minutes.

88'

GOAL! Lyon 0-3 Bayern Munich (Lewandowsi) 15 in 9 for the big man! Bayern win a free-kick close to the right by-line which Kimmich sticks up[ towards the back post, and Lewandowski jumps and hangs all over Denayer to panel home a brilliant header. Decent player imo.

85'

Mendes is late on Muller booting him in the back. he's booked.

82'

Off go Thiago and Goretzka, on come Tolisso and Pavard.

80'

Lovely from Bayern, Muller lofting a pass into the box, which Goretzka flaps a lace at; Coutinho's lovely, impudent touch rushes past Lopes, but the touch from Goretzka meant he was offside.

78'

Coutinho does his thing, finding space on the left to curl towards the far corner - low, which is unusual - but the ball zoots about a foot wide. Good effort.

76'

Coutinho replaces Gnabry.

76' 

After an excellent set of quarters, the semis haven't quite go there so far. This one was great until Bayern scored and has had some moments since, but Lyon's profligacy has stopped it from being what it could've been.

75'

Lyon go down left with Aouar, who's finally woken up. He cuts back for Cherki, whose swish at goal sends the ball square, where Dembele can't get anything better on it. Lyon have had enough chances to make a serious game of this.

74' 

Cherki was 17 two days ago, and the youngest-ever player is Celestine Babayaro.

73'

Lyon bring on the second-youngest player ever to play in the Champions League, Cherki, for Marcelo.

72' 

Reine-Adelaide pops up in the box and gets to the line, but he's forced to go backwards to Caqueret, who can't find a shooting aor passing angle.

70' 

Coman plays a bum pass and Lyon break, but Cornet's pass for Dembele is intercepted by Sule. Good defending.

69' 

Coman weaves to the line, taxing a yard off Tete with a pair of stepovers, but Tete does well to get back at him and the corner comes to nothing.

68' 

Goretzka hits a pass over the top and into space for Muller, whose movement is so good. He crosses low, but Lewandowski, whose night it is not, slides the ball behind.

67'

Two more changes for Lyon, Tete and Reine-Adelaide on for Dubois and Toko Ekambi.

67' 

Lovely from Lyon, Dembele finding Aouar,who sways past two and into the box, but before he can shoot, Alaba slides the ball behind.

66' 

Coman, at inside-left, skips away from his man beautifully, but can't find a passing lane so turns and goes backwards.

65' 

Bayern knock it about, Lyon let them.

64' 

It's gone a bit scrappy. I daresay Lyon won't mind that

63'

And there's the change, Coman for Perisic.

62' 

Coman will soon be on for Bayern. I'd not like to be a full-back who's played sixty and then has thirty against a fresh him.

60' 

Lyon have been more dangerous these last few minutes.

58'

LYON MISS ANOTHER ONE! Sule challenges Dembele and goes down, so Dembele sends Aouar away! He's got Ekambi alongside him, so squares, but Ekambi takes the easiest option, punching low and hard but assuming that anything will be a goal, and it's not enough to beat Neuer, who manages to stretch a leg out as the ball passes him.

57'

Another change for Lyon, Dembele replacing Memphis.

55'

Better from Lyon, Dubois going down the right and crossing well, but Sule slides in ahead of Memphis. The corner is a goodun, picking out Marcelo, but he heads straight at Neuer. Missing chances like that has probably cost Lyon the game already.

54' 

Not only are Bayern more solid "footballistically" than Man City, they're more solid mentally. We're seeing that tonight.

53' 

Marcal looks for Cornet with a long pass, but Kimmich gets at him to slide into touch - on halfway. Lyon can't get anywhere.

52' 

Meanwhile, Perisic goes down the left and crosses, the ball flicking off a leg and forcing Lopes to catch under the bar.

51 

It's been a while since Lyon mustered anything of note.

50' 

Bayern knock it about, Lyon sit back. I guess they'd not mind 2-0 at 70 minutes because at least then they're still in it. If they go wild trying to score now, there's a good chance the game's over by then.

48' 

We've not seen much of Muller, but a long, early ball from Davies almost puts him in - he times his run beautifully - but the pass was slightly overhit.

47' 

You think.

46'

There's a change apiece, Lyon bringing on Thiago Mendes for Guimares, and Bayern bringing on Sule for Boateng. My guess is both were forced.

46'

Off we go again.

20:46 

No injury-time, that's a rarity. That was great until Bayern scored, after which it was pretty one-sided. Lyon need to have a sit and a think, then try and do what they did but score, even if it means they lose by a few.

20:46

Half-time: Lyon 0-2 Bayern Munich

45' 
43' 

You could see Lyon scoring twice in the second half, but you can't see Bayern not scoring at all.

42'

Lewandowski runs into Marcal, goes down as you might, and Marcal is booked.

42' 

We've barely seen Aouar tonight.

41' 

First bit of Lyon in a while, Marcal hitting a diag over the top, and Ekambi is after it with Neuer nowhere, but Boateng comes across to tackle.

41' 
40' 

Bayern are a bit like Man United in the treble season: you need to score three to have a chance of beating them.

40' 

Since Bayern scored, Lyon have barely had a look-in.

38' 

Gnabry, who is such a player now, eases off the right to curl one in, and Lopes misses it! But running in on the other side, Lewandowski somehow misses what should've been a tap-in with the outside of his right foot.

37' 

You can't even say that the difference between the sides is that Bayern took their chances because the first one wasn't even that and the second one was a bad miss that set up an unmissable one for someone else.

37' 

Arsenal selling Gnabry for £5m is a majestically horrific bit of business.

35'

Marcelo grabs at Lewandowski, who wants to run in behind, Lewandowski goes down like he's in agony, and Marceloa is booked.

33'

GOAL! Lyon 0-2 Bayern (Gnabry) This is nearly over! Bayern come down the left when Gnabry spreads to Perisic, who crosses low; Lewandowski could blow it in! But, on the slide, he somehow misses, and though Lopes does his best from the ground, Gnabry sweeps home from three yards.

32' 

31' 

Gnabry runs in behind, stretching Lyon, and Lopes has to come out to block his cross.

30' 

If that happens, COutinho has got to be up there with the worst buys of all-time.

28' 

If Bayern win the Champions League, Barcelona have to pay Liverpool more money for Coutinho because the conditions of his transfer didn't specify a club. That is very funny.

27' 

Bayern are starting to find space, Boateng pinging a pass out to him that allows a saunter into the box, but Dubois is able to block.

26' 

This is a really good game.

25' 

Lyon need to be careful here; Gnabry finds time and space outside the box, lashing a low shot that Lopes fumbles ... but Denayer is on-hand to clear.

25' 

I said I thought Bayern would win this competition, but I'm coming out in hives just thinking about the fun Paris' attack will have behind their defence.

24' 

Herein lies the problem.

23' 
22' 

Bayern win a free-kick 30 yards out, well right of centre, which Alaba flights obliquely into the space; Muller anticipates, but completely misses his kick.

21' 
20' 

Can Lyon keep the head?

18'

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE GOAL! Lyon 0-1 Bayern Munich (Gnabry) Tony Pulis' Gnabry gets the ball on the right and carves infield, across the face of the box, then somehow dematerialises a screeching, swerving outswinger into the bit just below the top corner! That is sensational, and what happens when you don't take your chances against a team of this calibre.

17'

HAVE A LOOK! Lyon come at Bayern again - they're absolutely rinsing through the high line - with Ekambi at inside-right. He cuts inside, swivels into a shot ... and clatters the near post! He picks up the rebound, but his effort is blocked.

15' 
13' 

Here come Lyon again! Caqueret sweeps left for the rousting Cornet, who crosses low ... but Boateng does really well to cut it out on the slide. Lyon are showing what can be achieved with a bit of bravery and belief.

12'

Lyon have started with so much more belief than RB did last night. Memphis drifts left, wallops a curler that's headed wide .. but Ekambi chucks himself at it, only just missing with a header.

11'

Goretzka plays a wall-pass off Lewandowski, whose return is excellent, and though he barely connects with his shot across Lopes, the keeper suddenly bricks it, scrambling to poke behind for a corner which comes to nothing.

9' 

The corner goes short to Dubois, who lifts a ball into the middle, seeking Denayer, but Neuer is out to punch clear.

8' 

Eesh! Caqueret turns as Lyon try to play out from the back, and Goretzka is really close to robbing him. But they escape and Dubois eventually crosses from the right, winning a corner off Davies.

8' 

The thing about Bayern is that none of their defenders are that good at defending. They're better than City's, but they're far from impregnable.

6' 

That chance will prove to Lyon that they can create chances, but they'll be feeling trepidatious because they won't get many better than that.

4'

Hello hello! Caqueret intercepts a poor pass from Thiago, and immediately slides Memphis in! He in, I say, he's in! But he opts not to shoot right away, drawing the keeper, who comes out, but when he might shoot he tries to go around him, losing the angle and firing into the side-netting. Ye've gottae score, I'm afraid.

3' 

Hello! Memphis gets down the left of the box chasing a ball over the top, then boots it against Alaba, the nearest defender. Old habits and all that.

1' 

Davies gets forward immediately and crosses, but Marcal kicks clear.

1' 

BT have Clive Tyldesley and Peter Drury on the books, but give Darren Fletcher all the big games like he's the real Darren Fletcher.

1'

Away we go!

19:59 

Here come the teams...

19:56 

Owen Hargreaves reckons Bayern will score "three or four", and it feels wrong to be saying that about a semi. But when you look at their team, there are a few expensive purchases, but not many; it's mainly smart buys and academy products.

19:53 

I wonder if this'll be Aouar's last game for Lyon. It's a terrible state of affairs on the one hand, but on the other he is better than seventh in Ligue 1.

19:52 

Yes, let's. That'll be great fun.

19:48 
19:45 

I know that these days, clubs run their academies as a player-trading business, but Man City could really do with Lyon's Jason Denayer, never mind Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

19:44 
19:40 

This makes me slightly ill, because I should've been at this game, watching Man United beat Lyon.

19:38 

I can't stop looking at that Bayern midfield. But Lyon will be able to find space in behind Davies and Kimmich, if their wing-backs can get forward to attack it.

19:34 

What's been striking about Bayern this season is the ridiculousness of their finishing. 39 goals in nine games is something else.

19:33 
19:31 

The thing is that this time, Lyon face a team not hamstrung by the strangeness of their manager and his refusal and/or inability to construct a serious defence. It's hard to see a way for them.

19:29 

And Lyon have two strikers too, so any third-man run will cause an immediate problem. But can they get enough of the ball, and can they keep from conceding?

19:28 

It's hard to pick a fault in this Bayern side, because it's so well-balance, with a bit of everything. But if I was coaching against them, I'd be targeting their centre-backs, because Boateng loves an error and Alaba is a fantastic footballer but not a fantastic defender.

19:27 
19:23 

De-cent.

19:20 

It's gonna be Bayern v Lyon says Nyon.

19:18 

Lyon are also unchanged - Moussa Dembele's brace isn't enough to get him into the team. They too have a nifty midfield, and I can't see them changing their tactics much - they'll look to sit back and counter, but like Leipzig with PSG last night, might struggle with Bayern's press. if they've any sense, they'll go over it and see what happens.

19:14 

Bayern are unchanged from Friday night's frankly disturbing win over Barcelona. I'm slightly surprised that Perisic has taken Coman's place - I know he runs more and such, but I know which I'd rather face were I a full-back. Otherwise, I love that midfield they have - Goretzka is a serious piece of footballer, and Thiago is a beautiful footballer. This is a team.

19:10 

I'll just jot those down, then we can discuss them.

19:10 
19:07 
19:06 
19:04 

Let's have some teams, nu.

19:01 

I'm looking forward to this one. Since somehow finding themselves like a teenager in Goa, Bayern have looked like European champions in waiting, obliterating the competition both domestic and continental. In particular, the reinvention of Thomas Muller as a playmaker has been a glorious, sensational boon, likewise the development of Alphonso Davies and maturation of Joshua Kimmich.

But Lyon are no mugs whatsoever, and in Houssem Aouar have one of the next best midfielders in the world. Alongside him in midfield, Bruno Guimares is also a player, and up front, Toko Ekambi and Memphis Depay will ask questions of David Alaba and Jerome Boateng. This will not be 0-0.

18:14 

Evening all, and welcome to Bayern Munich v Lyon in the Champions League semi-finals!
