Thomas Muller celebrates scoring against Barcelona

Bayern Munich will now take on Paris Saint-Germain in the finals of the Champions League on Sunday, August 23.

Lewandowski's magnificent form has given Bayern Munich the confidence that they could win the UEFA Champions League trophy for the sixth time.

The Bayern skipper also heaped praise on the manager Hansi Flick and said that he developed his players very well in terms of preparation.

In a clash of vastly different style to their previous thrilling encounter, it was Liverpool who largely had the better of the play, only to be undone by one of Europe's premier penalty-box poachers.

Mueller's winning mentality but with a humble nature is "also the DNA of Bayern Munich", said Kasper. Lewandowski has also now scored in nine consecutive Champions League matches. There was an opportunity to score in the 17th minute for Lyon, although he missed.

His weak shot was saved by Lopes, only for the alert Gnabry to pounce and convert his ninth goal in nine Champions League games.

Barca endured one of the most humiliating nights in their history as they were put to the sword by the German giants in the Champions League quarter-final last Friday.

"It will be a good game, there will be goals in that game". Serge Gunnabri from Bayern Munich scored in the 18th and 33rd minutes.

The Argentina worldwide skipped past a flat-footed Daniel van Buyten before curling the ball beyond Hans-Jörg Butt, his virtuoso display seeing Inter crowned as champions of Europe for the first time in 45 years.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor opened the scoring after converting Dani Carvajal's cut-back from just inside the penalty area, before scoring Real's third of evening after turning home Luka Modric's cross. Ronaldo is the only other player to hit that number, although he has incredibly done so on three occasions - each time in successful campaigns for Real Madrid.

Lyon wasted a couple of early chances and were then overwhelmed by the clinical Bavarian powerhouse, the competition's highest-scoring team and coming off an 8-2 win over Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

Lewandowski has scored the 15th goal in the current Champions League. With this, the pair of Gnabry and Lewandowski surpassed a record previously set by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale for Real Madrid.
