Olympique Lyonnais’ Memphis Depay and Karl Toko Ekambi failed to find the back of the net against Bayern Munich on Wednesday and the storyline could not change.That failure in the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League semifinal game’s opening 16 minutes simply summed up the story, that the competition only nearly had its first ever all-French final. Instead, Paris St-Germain will now face the German champions while Lyon return home empty-handed.And this is without the opportunity of righting those wrongs next season, after they failed to qualify for Europe’s premier club competition.Ligue 1 was the only top flight league from the “Big Five” to prematurely end its season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.It left Lyon in seventh place on a points-per-game basis – thereby missing out on the Europa League as well.The 3-0 scoreline flatters Bayern Munich as Lyon had their chances but playing in only their second semi-final on the big stage, their inexperience cost them dearly. On the other hand, their German opponents were clinical, thanks to a Serge Gnabry masterclass.Lyon’s players have however learned a valuable lesson.But whether they will be around next season to put those into practice for the French club remain doubtful with certain performances catching the eye of bigger European sides.Midfielder Houssem Aouar was one of the stand-out performers for Lyon in this campaign.But he may have played his last game for the club, with the French media reporting that Arsenal are interested in signing the talented 22-year-old. Lyon’s top goalscorer Moussa Dembele, who scored 24 goals this season, may move on too with Lyon sporting director Juninho not mincing his words when talking about their players’ future.“There will be departures, but I’m not worried,” Juninho said.“When you have players who play very well in a competition like this, like Moussa and Houssem… We will have to show the same spirit to be back in the Champions League next season.“The aim now is to continue working immediately with Ligue 1… We will have to work. If we continue like this, we will be back in this competition.”RelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says UCL: Benfica kicked out by player who left club one week earlier + other results MultiChoice unveils sport channels, content line-up Lyon have no time to dwell on the loss with Ligue 1 restarting its season this weekend.Rudi Garcia’s side play their first match next week and the Frenchman is aware the semi-final exit may have taken a mental toll on the players.“We have some psychological work to do with the players to quickly refocus on the league, because we can’t afford a bad start,” Garcia said.He added the future of key players was not in his hands but the club president Jean-Michel Aulas.“We don’t know what’s going to happen… But when we look at the team, we didn’t have to make it to the Champions League semi-finals to know how good my players are.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: Karl Toko EkambiMemphis DepayOlympique LyonUEFA Champions League
