Description: LYN Vs BAY Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Bayern Munich emerge as outright favourites for this edition’s prestigious title.
There’s just no stopping Bayern Munich and their unnerving will to lift the 2019-20 edition of the Champions League. The most deserving side in the competition this season, the side managed to keep its 100% winning record intact after routing Barcelona in their quarter-final.
The 8-2 decimation of Barcelona was perhaps the biggest statement of intent from Bayern Munich till now. The club went on a rampage to school a downtrodden Barcelona side, a performance so clinical, overwhelming and comprehensive that Barcelona ended up relieving Seiten of his duties as manager following the horrendous thrashing.
That win joined the lengthy pile of illustrious performances by Bayern Munich this season with the club having previously routed Chelsea 7-1 and Tottenham 7-0. The club has gone from strength to strength in the tournament, a side in fluent touch ahead of its imminent semi-final face off against French club Lyon.
LYN Vs BAY Dream11 Probable Winner
Seventh in the league, having lost a hoard of crucial names and having played no football in the last four months, everything was stacked up against Lyon as the club returned to the Champions League. However, the side has since then defeated Manchester City and Juventus to make a play in the much coveted second semi-final.
Where Bayern Munich’s incredible run has been hailed, Lyon’s show of fight and character is deserving of being lauded as well. No one had given the club to canter its way into this stage, much less pulling off the remarkable 3-1 win the side did against City.
Its been a dream campaign for the side until now but one which unfortunately runs its race today. There’s been no curbing Bayern Munich’s rampant attack this season and Lyon will be the latest side to receive the German side’s wrath.

Dream 11 Picks
Anthony Lopes was blamed for shambolic goal-keeping during his side’s encounter against Juventus but the shot stopper more than redeemed himself against City. In what was an outstanding show of goal-keeping, he pulled off a wordclass performance to sniffle wave after wave of City attack.
Alphonso Davies is fast taking on shape as a wordclass leftback. His electric performance against Barcelona see many already having handed him the moniker of the world’s best in his position at the moment with the leftback ripping Barcelona into shreds.
In what was a truly scrumptious performance from him, he showed why he’s considered such hot property as his run past the team’s entire defence for Kimmich’s goal left everyone stunned. He becomes a must have pick for us today along with Joshua Kimmich who scored off his pinch perfect pass in that tie.
CB David Alaba joins up to complete the triad of picks from the side for this one.
With two assists against City, Houssem Aouar showed why he’s been so highly coveted by clubs across the footballing fraternity. In what was yet another sublime performance from the midfielder, he managed to keep the ball moving quickly for Lyon against City with his ability to navigate tiny spaces making him a tricky proposition to halt.
Where the goal have dried up for Lyon this season, the defence has taken over the club. The side’s backline has been responsible for the side make it into this side with the backline coming up with incredible shows of resolute and responsible defending.
And bridging the gap between defence and attack has been Maxwell Cornet with the player scoring a crucial goal for the side the last time around. CDM Bruno Guimaraes has managed to make his presence felt in the side’s midfield with a string of tackles and blocks to see him wrap up our set of picks from the side.
Serge Gnabry raked up his 7th goal of the campaign the last time along with snagging an assist as well to see him become the first pick from Bayern Munich. He comes in alongside Ivan Perisic who has now scored in two straight encounters for the club.
Robert Lewandowksi is a man out on a mission this season. The striker can’t just stop scoring this season with his goal the last time around meaning he’s scored in every single match in the tournament this season.
Thomas Muller saw his two goals the last time around take his tally to four goals in the ongoing sortie to make him the final pick from Bayern Munich.
Captain And Vice-Captain
14 goals for Robert made him an instant pick as our side’s captain while Gnabry is the vice-captain.
