Lyon will face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals after they defeated Manchester City 3-1 in Lisbon.

Manchester City were favourites, but in the 24th minute, Maxwell Cornet stunned the Premier League side. Ederson was out his goal and the Lyon attacker found the net with a controlled finish.

Lyon then had to withstand pressure but in the 69th minute, Kevin De Bruyne equalised. After the equaliser, Memphis Depay was substituted, but Kenny Tete came onto the pitch.

Manchester City was on top, but in the 79th minute, Moussa Dembele made it 2-1, before the striker then sealed Lyon’s place in the last four in the 89th minute.

Lyon will now face Bayern Munich on Wednesday for a place in the final.
