UEFA Champions League Prediction Thread – 4/27/10

It’s late April, and the real fun has begun. Today, Lyon hosts Bayern Munich in a match that will decide who takes the first spot in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

Bayern have a 1-0 lead after their home win last week, and I really like the position they are in here. Having not surrendered any away goals, and having an attack that almost certainly will add to their total today, I really like their chances to advance. Lyon will put up a fight, though, and I see the match ending in a 1-1 DRAW, with Munich advancing, 2-1, on aggregate.

Post your picks in the Comments section by 2:45 p.m. Eastern. It’s 80 points for the winner and exact score (or calling a draw/score exactly right; 40 points for the winner and margin (or calling a draw with a different score); 20 points for having the winner.

Here are the standings to this point:

  1. Lyon 1 – 0 Bayern.

    We’ll get to see penalties for the first time in the knockout round. I think Bayern will take it from there.

  2. Bayern dominate, beating Lyon, 3-0, and brushing off the French club 4-0 on aggregate to advance to the Final.
