(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Substitute Moussa Dembele struck twice as Olympique Lyonnais stunned Manchester City with a 3-1 victory on Saturday to move into the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

The effort takes the French side to a date with Bayern Munich.

Lyon took the lead in the 24th minute with a fine finish from Maxwel Cornet, who spotted Ederson off his line and beat him with a low drive from the edge of the box.

Manchester City drew level through a Kevin De Bruyne side-foot finish in the 69th minute and pushed forward in search of a winner.

But they were caught out on the break, as Dembele broke free and Ederson’s outstretched leg could not keep his shot out of the net.

Manchester City had a golden chance to draw level moments later, but Raheem Sterling somehow blasted over from close range with the goal at his mercy.

Lyon responded by taking advantage of chaos in the Manchester City defence, with Ederson pushing out a low shot from Houssem Aouar and Dembele pouncing for his second.
