UCL: Bayern must be cautious of Man City-conquerors Lyon – Tolisso

Corentin Tolisso has warned treble-chasing Bayern Munich to be cautious of his former club Lyon in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final as Bavarians look to build on their demolition of Barcelona.

“From a German point of view, perhaps Lyon’s the least known team. But against Manchester City, we all saw what this team is capable of,” warned France midfielder Tolisso, who joined Bayern from Lyon in 2017.

“We will never underestimate them. When the big games come up, Lyon is always there.

“No team can reach the semi-finals by chance,” added the 2018 World Cup winner, who is likely to start on the bench on Wednesday.

Two second-half goals by substitute Moussa Dembele helped Lyon dump Pep Guardiola’s City out of the Champions League and Bayern have no intention of following suit.

Interestngly, Bayern’s average of 4.33 goals per game is a new Champions League record.

At the last count, they have scored 39 goals in nine European games, including a 7-2 drubbing of Tottenham and a 6-0 romp at Red Star Belgrade.

Robert Lewandowski is the competition’s top scorer with 14 goals — three short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2013-14 record for a Champions League season.
