It is no longer a guess that Lyon knows how to beat Manchester City. It was just a repeat of last season. Cornet opens the score for Lyon at 24′. Manchester City later balanced the midfield with De Bruyne’s excellent distribution that yielded a goal from De Bruyne at 69′ ably assisted by Rahim Sterling. Dembele started from the bench to put Lyon on the lead again at 79′ . He was not done yet, he scored from Lyon kepper’s error at 87′ to kick Man City out of the Champions League. The last two goals by Dembele were scored when possession was 71% for Man City.
Pep ran crazy with what seemed incredible to him. He fell on his knees and uprooted grasses.
Lyon will face Bayern Munich on a semi- final on Wednesday.
