VIDEO: Olic hits trips as Bayern batter Lyon to reach the Champions League final

Lyon 0 – Bayern Munich 3 (Agg. 0-4) (Champions League, April 27, 2010) (Longer highlights here.) Bayern were on top in Lyon almost from the off, and finally their pressure told in the 26th minute when Schweinsteiger and Muller exchanged passes on the edge of the box teeing up Ivica Olic and the Croatian had little trouble beating Lloris to leave the Frenchman in deep trouble. Just before the hour Lyon’s hopes were further diminished when Cris, after being pulled up for a legal tackle, petulantly clapped in the face of the ref which earned him a harsh second yellow and his marching orders. An in the 67th minute it was all over as Altintop slipped a perfect pass through to Ivica Olic and the striker pounced on the ball and booked Bayern’s place in the final. Lyon, looking beaten after an awful performance, conceded a third in the 77th as Lahm cross from the right and Ivica Olic heading home his third for a famous hat-trick.
