Bayern Munich into Champions League final

9:04 am on 28 April 2010

The Croatia striker Ivica Olic scored a hat-trick to fire Bayern Munich into their first Champions League final since 2001 after the German side demolished Olympique Lyon 3-nil in France.

Three clinical finishes from Olic helped the four-times European champions complete a 4-nil aggregate semi-final success at Stade Gerland.

Lyon finished the game with 10 men after centre back Cris was sent off just before the hour.

Bayern will face either Inter Milan or Barcelona in the May 22 final at the Bernabeu in Madrid.... Inter led that semi-final 3-1 heading into the return leg tomorrow.
