Serge Gnabry struck twice to send Bayern Munich through to the Champions League final with a 2-0 win over Lyon.

The French side started the brighter of the teams but failed to capitalise on their golden opportunities early on..



Moments after Karl Toko Ekambi struck the woodwork to Manuel Neuer’s left, Bayern counter-attacked and a stunning strike by Serge Gnabry put the Bavarian giants ahead.

The Germany forward added his second of the match from close just after the half-hour mark, capitalising after a rare mishit effort by Robert Lewandowski.

Lyon had chances in the second half, with Ekambi forcing an important save from Neuer, but Bayern showed their mettle and Lewandowski headed home late on to secure their spot in the final, where they will face PSG.
