    Time:90'
    • Bayern München
    • Olympique Lyon
    • 90+2' The full-time whistle goes at the Allianz Arena, and Bayern Munich lead 1-0 after the first leg courtesy of Arjen Robben's thunderbolt! Franck Ribery and Jeremy Toulalan both saw red, and the German side have the advantage at the halfway point! Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+1' Again it is the excellent Lahm who forces his way forward and drives a low shot which Lloris is able to collect at his near post.
    • 90' Just two minutes will be added at the end of this second half, and Bayern continue to press.
    • 89' Lahm feeds Gomez with a neat ball inside, but the lumbering forward fails to take the ball in his stride.
    • 87' Lahm cuts inside from the right and builds for Bayern once more - great play from the full-back.
    • 86' Contento goes down clutching his leg after a challenge with Makoun, and that was mistimed.
    • 85' Robben is taken off by Van Gaal, and Hamit Altintop comes on in his place. The goalscorer is furious and has a furious exchange with his boss on the touchline!
    • 83' Robben fires a long-range shot on target, and Lloris makes a smart stop to deny the winger.
    • 82' Both managers are out on the touchline barking instructions at their sides in anxious fashion.
    • 81' Robben and Lahm combine down the right for Bayern, but the defender's shot is blocked away.
    • 80' Gomez challenges for a high ball with Cris, and the forward commits a foul as Lyon can regroup.
    • 79' Govou gets down the left at pace as he makes an immediate impression, but Lahm stands his ground superbly.
    • 78' Michel Bastos is booked for a clumsy infringement on halfway, and the Lyon substitute is penalised.
    • 77' Delgado is replaced by Sidney Govou, and the French forward needs to make an impact for his side.
    • 75' Reveillere and Gomez clash in the Lyon half, but both players are quickly to their feet.
    • 74' Muller links up the play effectively for Bayern, and the hosts continue to dominate the play.
    • 73' Robben drives another shot from the edge of the Lyon box, and the Dutchman has one thing in his mind!
    • 72' Gomez misses another header from point-blank range, and the forward has not made a great impact!
    • 71' Lyon are firmly under the cosh now as the German side continue to pile forward in their droves!
    • 70' GOAL!!!!! ROBBEN GIVES BAYERN THE LEAD! The Dutchman unleashes a screamer from 30 yards which takes a slight deflection off Muller and beats Lloris as the winger scores his fourth goal in eight matches!
    • 69' What a miss from Gomez! The forward somehow plants a tame header straight at Lloris from close range, and he really should have scored without doubt!
    • 67' Robben charges forward for Bayern as the hosts keep the ball in their opponent's half, but to no avail.
    • 66' Schweinsteiger has a long-range effort deflected off Cris and away for a corner, and the hosts are pushing hard now.
    • 65' Delgado and Cissokho combine down the left for Lyon, and the visitors are not sure whether to attack or defend following Toulalan's dismissal.
    • 63' Muller is full of running as he bustles his way down the left and drives a low shot past the far post.
    • 61' Danijel Pranjic is replaced for Bayern as Mario Gomez is introduced for the hosts.
    • 59' Robben buys a free-kick in the Lyon half with an exaggerated tumble, and Bayern are back on the attack.
    • 57' Lloris is swiftly off his line to claim a loose ball in the Lyon box, and Cris returns, but very gingerly.
    • 56' Cris goes down injured again, and this time it is as a result of a challenge with Muller.
    • 55' Pjanic is replaced as a result of the dismissal, and Makoun comes on in his place.
    • 54' TOULALAN IS SHOWN THE RED CARD! This one is harsher as the French midfielder raises a high boot and catches Schweinsteiger and, despite getting the ball, is shown a second yellow card!
    • 53' Lahm maks a superb run down the right, but after reaching the byline and cutting the ball back, Muller loses his balance and the chance is squandered!
    • 51' Toulalan is booked for hauling down Robben on halfway, and that was very cynical and reckless. He will miss the second leg!
    • 49' Pranjic drives a fierce volley narrowly wide, and that was a fine effort from the midfielder!
    • 48' Robben is pulling the strings in midfield for Bayern, and the hosts are on the attack through Muller.
    • 47' Robben loses out to Toulalan, and Lyon build from the back once more patiently.
    • 46' The second half is underway at the Allianz Arena and, with Bayern down to 10 men, it will be a test of Lyon's ambition.
    • 46' Ivica Olic makes way following Ribery's dismissal, with Anatoliy Tymoschuk introduced in a bid to shore up the Bayern midfield.
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at the Allianz Arena, and it has petered out poorly after the drama of Ribery being sent-off! It is goalless.

    • 44' Butt races out to claim a high ball from Delgado who crosses out on the right, and Bayern can clear once more.
    • 43' What an effort from Kallstrom! The Swede lashes a long-range strike towards the top corner of Butt's net, but the keeper tips it wide!
    • 42' Bayern are wisely looking to consolidate prior to half-time, keeping the ball without any urgency.
    • 41' Lopez and Delgado combine in the Lyon half, and Bayern are back defending now.
    • 40' The home fans express their frustration towards the referee, but that was a definite red card - high and horrible!
    • 39' Lisandro is back on the field and hobbling around gingerly, but he should be fine with half-time approaching.
    • 38' Lopez is stretchered off the field, and that was a very robust challenge from the winger, who trudges down the tunnel.
    • 37' RIBERY IS SENT OFF! The Frenchman is shown a straight red card for a high challenge on Lisandro Lopez, and there is no doubt that was the correct decision!
    • 35' Bayern continue to keep pressing forward, and Lyon are struggling to keep their opponent's at bay.
    • 34' Ribery whips over a corner from the left, but his delivery is cleared away by Cris.
    • 33' Cissokho and Gonalons and combine for Lyon, but Bayern are boxing in their opponents.
    • 32' Robben takes an exaggerated tumble in the Lyon half under a challenge from Toulalan, and there was nothing in that!

    • 30' Lahm is penalised for handling from Pjanic's cross out on the left, and Lyon have a dangerous free-kick.
    • 29' Butt is swiftly off his line to clear upfield, but he slices his clearance in the air tamely.
    • 28' Pranjic is booked for a cynical infringement on Ederson, and the Bayern midfielder will miss the second leg!
    • 27' Delgado and Lopez challenge for aerial balls in the Bayern half, and the forwards are fighting for everything.
    • 25' Olic scraps away for possession in the Lyon half in typically determined fashion.
    • 24' Contento does well to shepherd the ball out of play on the left as Bayern are pushed back in their half.
    • 23' Cris returns to the pitch gingerly, and the defender will be bringing relief to every fan of the French side.
    • 21' Ribery blasts a shot wildly over the bar, but the stretcher is out for Lyon defender Cris, and this could be a real problem!
    • 19' Olic drives a wild shot from range which flies over the bar, and that was a decent effort from that far out!
    • 18' Ribery hurtles forward and drives a low shot narrowly wide of Lloris's near post - good opening, he should have hit the target!
    • 17' Demichelis is playing very far forward for a defender as he charges into the Lyon half once more.
    • 16' Finally the French side regroup and break through Reveillere, and the right-back whips over a stunning ball which runs right across the six-yard box!
    • 15' It is all Bayern as the hosts pile forward from deep, and Lyon are defending for their lives.
    • 13' What a miss from Schweinsteiger! The German meets Robben's cross from the right and somehow heads wide with the hapless Lloris having raced out of goal and completely missed his punch - the goal was gaping!
    • 12' Lloris tips the ball over the bar, and that is a very good save as Ribery challenges with the keeper from Muller's shot.
    • 11' Muller is hauled down by Pjanic, and the midfielder is very apologetic as Bayern are able to clear.
    • 9' Kallstrom whips over a testing cross from the left, and Contento clears superbly under pressure.
    • 8' Reveillere wins a towering header as he challenges with Ribery, and both sides are defending stoutly.
    • 7' Robben wins a free-kick outwide after squandering the first with a poor delivery, and he will hope to do better.
    • 6' Robben will whip a free-kick into the Lyon box, and this could be dangerous with a good delivery from the Dutchman.
    • 5' Pjanic wastes the free-kick as Bayern are able to regroup, and Butt will clear upfield.
    • 3' Van Buyten fouls Delgado, and Lyon have a dangerous free-kick now on the edge of the Bayern box.

    • - It's time to rattle through some pre-match facts and figures...
    • - Bayern have won only one of their last eight Champions League matches against French clubs, a 3-2 win in Lyon last season. They lost home and away to Bordeaux in this season's group stage.
    • - The German side's striker Thomas Mueller scored as a substitute in his CL debut against Sporting Lisbon last season but has failed to find the net in nine starts in the competition this season.
    • - Bayern beat St Etienne 2-0 on aggregate on the last occasion they met a French club in a European semi-final. That was in the 1975 European Cup in which they went on to take the title, beating St Etienne again the following year in the final.
    • - Lyon have won five of their last seven CL games against German clubs and have lost only one - against Bayern. They have lost only one of their last 13 at home in Europe, also against Bayern.
    • - The French side are in the CL semi-finals for the first time although they have reached the quarter-finals on four occasions. Their only previous European semi-final was in the 1964 Cup Winners Cup when they lost to Sporting Lisbon.
    • - Lyon keeper Hugo Lloris has played every minute of his side's CL games this season and has never let in more than one goal in a game, conceding just six in 10 matches.
    • - Franck Ribery will attempt to put off-field distractions to one side as Bayern Munich take on Lyon in their Champions League semi-final. The Bayern winger is one of four French footballers implicated in a sex scandal, and is accused of sleeping with a 17-year-old prostitute - which is below the age limit for legal prostitution in France.
