LYN vs BAY Dream11 Prediction
The second semi final of this season's UEFA Champions League will be competed between France's Lyon and Germany's Bayern Munich. Lyon will be heading into the fixture as underdogs, considering the kind of form Bayern are going through. Nevertheless, Lyon did manage to get the better of Juventus and Manchester City which should give the much needed confidence heading forward. If they do manage to create an upset, Lyon will be in touching distance of creating club history by winning the invaluable trophy for the first time. But, Bayern Munich are not going to make things easy by any means as soon as the game commences. The five time Champions League winners are on the back of a shocking 8-2 win over FC Barcelona and will be thriving in confidence. They are being regarded as the favourites to go the distance and could very well do so. Here is the Dream11 Prediction for the second semi final.

Memphis Depay has been the standout performer for Lyon so far. The Dutch international has six goals from the last seven Champions League appearances for his side.
Robert Lewandowski has been in scintillating form for Bayern Munich throughout the season. The veteran centre forward has 14 goals and five assists from eight Champions League appearances so far.
Maxwel Cornet got himself a big goal against Manchester City and will be eager to get on the score sheet again. Cornet has four goals and three assists from the 23 appearances in the league this season.
Thomas Muller was the player of the match for Bayern Munich in the 8-2 mauling of Barcelona courtesy two goals and an assist. The German international now has four goals and two assists from eight appearances in the Champions League this season.
Bayern Munich have won nine straight games in the Champions League and have scored three goals or more in eight of those games.
