LISBON :- Lyon beat Manchester City 3-1 in the European Champions League on Saturday after Moussa Dembele entered the field with two goals towards the end of the game. Pep Guardiola, a strong contender for the title, is out of the competition.

At Jose Alvalade Stadium, Lyon took the lead through a goal from Maxwell Cornet. Kevin de Bruyne equalized for City in the middle of the second half to keep their chances of reaching the semi-finals alive. But Dembele scored in the 79th minute to give the team the lead. Three minutes later, he added another goal.

Lyon, who ended at seventh position in the French domestic league, is doing well in the Champions League. This is only the second official game they have played in March. Now they can dream of reaching the final of the competition and will face Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

With the victory of Lyon, the semi-final match in the Champions League has also ended. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will face RB Leipzig in the first semifinal. Bayern and Lyon will again face off in a match like in 2010 semifinals.
