After PSG secured their slot in the finals, it will be left between sides Lyon and Bayern Munich to battle it out. The match schedules at the Estadio Jose Alverde for Tuesday with kickoff at 10 p.m.
The Champions League final will be hosted on Sunday with PSG already booking their spot after a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig. It remains a close call for side Lyn who is in the semi-finals for the first time.
Bayern Munich is on a high flying record following their 8-2 humiliation to side Barcelona. The defeat marked the biggest defeat for the Catalan Giants. This led to the immediate sacking of Coach Setien and the appointment of Koeman to take over.
The side became the first side in the Champions League history to clinch the eight-goal thriller. Nineteen teams have tried to pull a win over the Bavarians to no success since February. The in-form side is seen as favorites to clinch the title.
However, Lyon cannot be underestimated after pulling surprising wins over Juventus and Manchester City. Dembele came off the bench to score a lead and taint Pep’s wish for a Champions League trophy.
This Tuesday will face an in-form side without any losses so far in the competition against a brave-hearted Lyon side keen on making history. Will Bayern continue their impressive form, or will the tables turn?

Lyon Team News
It remains a doubt whether talisman Dembele will make the starting lineup after starting on the bench in the previous encounter. Ekambi found favor with three starts so far in the Champions League. We expect no changes in the starting lineup.
Bayern Munich Team News
Right-back Benjamin Pavard is back in training after recovering from an injury. This might see Joshua Kimich return to the defensive midfielder role. Kingsley Coman might come on for Ivan Perisic, who has been phenomenal this campaign.
