Bayern Munich take on Lyon tonight as both sides look to join Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final.

Now German champions Bayern and French underdogs Lyon will face off to be their opponents.

What has been said?

Bayern striker Serge Gnabry: “If you look at the match against Barcelona then, yes, it was an exclamation mark – everyone heard about this result.

“But this a different match. It is a semi-final. They’ll be well prepared, it will be no walk in the park. We have to focus and be ready from the first minute.

“We know they’ve beaten Juventus, they’ve beaten Manchester City and both those teams were favourites. It looks like we’re favourites now and we have to be careful.

“Every single player was surprised by the result (against Barcelona), we couldn’t believe it, but we want to achieve more. We want to win.”

Bayern coach Hans-Dieter Flick: “I am relaxed because I know my team is greatly focused and have great objectives.

“But we all know it is one match which starts at 0-0 and we have to play 90 minutes with the same drive and intensity as we did against Barcelona.”

Lyon striker Maxwel Cornet: “We’ve knocked out some really big teams, the likes of Juventus and Manchester City. That shows we’re every bit as good as those teams.

“We mustn’t get carried away, we have to keep our feet on the ground and continue to work hard. The most important thing is to focus on ourselves.

“We’re making the most of the moment. We’re going to give our all out there again and, of course, we’re still hungry.”
