Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Lyon v. Bayern Munich Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

The semifinal between Bayern Munich and Lyon is the perfect example of a David vs. Goliath battle in modern soccer. Bayern destroyed both Chelsea and FC Barcelona in the knockout stages, and they've steamrolled past every opponent they've faced in the current UCL campaign, scoring 39 goals in total. Meanwhile, Lyon have been turning heads with their play and are coming off back-to-back upsets. The Ligue 1 side defeated Juventus in the round of 16, and pulled an even crazier win over Manchester City in the quarterfinals. Lightning doesn't strike three times in the same spot, however, so it's hard to imagine them pulling another upset. However, they've been playing so well of late that it would be disrespectful to count them out.
