Lyon has been a surprised package in this year competition. The Kids as they are called knocked out Juventus in the second round and shocked Manchester City in the quarters to set up a match against Bayern Munich tonight.
The Bavarians are definitely the bookies favorite to win the champions league. Hansi Flick side have been the best team in Europe this season scoring loads of goals and pummelling teams like they are their Lord. The latest was an 8-2 annihilation of Barcelona in the quarter-final.
Free scoring side, creativity, tactical onus, the five time European champion has everything to put Lyon to sword but The Sports Illuminator as he is fondly called feels otherwise.
Speaking on a football show called R2 Football anchored by Feranmi Adegboyega last Saturday on Royal Roots 92.5FM, the outspoken sports enthusiast said he saw an all Ligue One final.
“I think if Lyon beats Manchester City, we will have the very first all Ligue One UEFA Champions League final“, he said.
“I know it sound so odd and weird but that is what I feel, a win for Lyon over City then brace up for a Ligue One final because Paris Saint-Germain will beat RB Leipzig”, he said confidently.
Like he saw it coming, Rudi Garcia men shocked Pep Guardiola and his boyz to set up a tie against Bayern today while PSG ran over Leipzig to reach their first ever final.
In his latest tweet this morning, Raymond hasn’t change his mind on the what might be the outcome of today’s encounter especially with PSG booking their place in the final.
He tweeted via his handle
“@OL will beat @FCBayernEN in tonight’s @UEFA @ChampionsLeague“. We are having the first ever all @Ligue1_ENG final in the #UCL
Olympique Lyonnais…The Kids will knockout the Bavarians.
“#ChampionsLeague #ThisIsFootball #football #UefaChampionsLeague.”
Bayern Munich and Lyon will be meeting for the ninth time in European competition, the German side winning four of the previous eight, losing twice and drawing twice.
The last time both team met was in the 2009/2010 Champions League semi-finals, with Bayern winning 4-0 on aggregate.
Will The Sports Illuminator be correct? 8pm tonight!
