Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe admits he hopes Lyon will beat Bayern Munich in their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday and set up an all-French final in Europe’s elite club competition this weekend.

“I’d prefer Lyon for sure, because they are a French team,” Mbappe said when asked if he had a preferred opponent in the final after PSG’s 3-0 semi-final victory over RB Leipzig in Lisbon on Tuesday.

“It will be a very tough game. If it’s Bayern, fine, but if it were Lyon it would certainly make it a very special occasion.”

PSG are the first French side through to the final of the Champions League since Monaco in 2004 after goals by Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Juan Bernat saw off Leipzig in a one-sided encounter at the Estadio da Luz.

They would perhaps not be favourites in a final against Bayern, but they certainly would be against Lyon.
