Serge Gnabry scored twice and Robert Lewandowski netted his 55th goal of the season as trebIe-chasing Bayern Munich defeated Lyon 3-0 in Lisbon in the last four of the Champions League on Wednesday to set up a final against Paris Saint-Germain.
Bundesliga and German Cup winners Bayern are seeking a repeat of their 2013 treble with French giants PSG attempting to lift the trophy for the first time in club history.
The Champions League literally just restarted and it’s almost over.
Bayern Munich emerged from quarantine much like how the Doomguy awoke from his slumber enraged and ready to crush all enemies into a fine red paste.
Many weeks of ripping and tearing later, European football has been suitably chastised by the great red giant, with only one game remaining in the season, Hansi Flick and his men will be eyeing the final of the Champions League Bayern’s first since 2013.
Hansi Flick didn’t make the same mistake Pep Guardiola did to change his tactics.
Instead, he met Rudi Garcia’s men head on. That means starting Robert Lewandowski.
For the final game, Hansi Flick could decide to stick to the lineup and move Joshua Kimmich back to the center.
This would certainly improve Bayern defensively, but could compromise the functioning midfield pairing of Thiago Alcantara and Leon Goretzka.
As seen against City and Lyon, PSG have a formidable midfield which is more than capable of giving Bayern a hard time in the center of the park.
On the other hand, Hansi needs to be wary of counterattacks down the right as PSG also aims for their first ever Champions League Cup.
