BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 59

Olympique Lyonnais had an unforgettable 2019-20 Champions League season. The French side eliminated Juventus and Manchester City before being knocked out by the future winners of the competition, Bayern Munich, in the semi-finals.

Lyon reached the Champions League semi-finals last season and they had a terrific run to the final four. 

They beat Juventus 1-0 at home in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 clash before the coronavirus pandemic. In the second leg, Lyon lost the game 2-1, but their away goal, as a result of a controversial penalty, meant they progressed on the away goals rule. Then, in the quarter-final in Lisbon, the French side won 3-1 against Man City. Cornet saw his goal cancelled out by De Bruyne in the second half, but two late Moussa Dembele goals saw Lyon win 1-3. 

The Ligue 1 side though saw their run ended in the semi-finals by Bayern Munich. Two goals from Gnabry and then one for Lewandowski saw the Germans ease through. Take a look at Lyon's cup run in the video above!
