Lyon oust Bordeaux to set up clash with Bayern

6:41 pm on 8 April 2010

Olympique Lyon reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time despite losing 1-0 at French rivals Girondins Bordeaux .

The Ligue 1 champions Bordeaux had only an outside chance of qualifying after going down 3-1 in Lyon last week but Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh kept their hopes alive by scoring from close range just before the break.

Lyon, though, controlled much of a highly-tactical affair that was not as exciting as the first leg to triumph 3-2 on aggregate and set up a meeting with Bayern Munich who knocked out Manchester United.
