Competition: Champions League
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
With a spot in the final of this year’s Champions League up for grabs in midweek, Lyon and Bayern Munich will face off out in Portugal on Wednesday night.
Starting with Lyon, while they might have only made a handful of performances after the Ligue 1 campaign was scrapped earlier in the year, few would have expected what has been a stunning European run for the French side. Shocking almost everyone across the continent and knocking out this summer’s favourites and former Premier League champions Manchester City thanks to a 3-1 win, Rudi Garcia’s men also managed to knock Juventus out earlier in the month, a result that cost Maurizio Sarri his job in Turin. With Moussa Dembele bagging what was a stunning brace against the English giants over the weekend, Lyon also have a real reputation for their recent displays in the final third. Along with Memphis Depay bagging six Champions League goals in his last seven appearances, Les Gones will be looking for one more Portuguese miracle on Wednesday night.
As for Bayern Munich, putting eight past former European champions Barcelona last week, a result that will undoubtedly go down in Champions League history, it is no surprise that the German giants are a landslide favourite to lift the title later this month. Only going from strength to strength since making a return from football’s enforced break, the Bavarians find themselves in the midst of a stunning 19-match winning run across all competitions and are unbeaten since opening 2020. With some believing that this is the best Bayern squad over the past decades, one man to keep an eye out for on Wednesday will unsurprisingly be the red-hot Robert Lewandowski. Once again finding the net against Barca over the weekend, the Polish striker has now scored 54 goals across all formats this season and also has 14 Champions League strikes to his name.
