Lyon stunned Man City to seal their place in the UEFA Champions League semi-final.

Kevin De Bruyne cancelled out Maxwel Cornet’s opener with a brilliant team goal in the 69th minute, but Moussa Dembele came off the bench to score in the 79th and 87th minutes to give Lyon a stunning 3-1 win in Lisbon.

Rudi Garcia’s side will face Bayern Munich in the semi-final on Wednesday.

Here’s some of the best Twitter reaction from yet another dramatic quarter-final tie:

While a good chunk of the reactions pointed out the sheer brilliance with which the Ligue 1 outfit operated, there were quite a few comments on the stage of the final four sides too.

With the French sides generally ignored as the “farmer’s” League as opposed to the oft hyped Premier League, City’s ousting marks an interesting precedent in the competition. This time around, there are no teams from Spain, Italy, and England to make it to the final four.

Similar questions were also raised of Pep Guardiola whose tactics were largely expected to trounce those of the opposing side. What does this bode for his immediate future at the Etihad?

Lyon have now squashed two giants in the form of Juventus and Man City on their way to the semi-finals and they may just engineer another upset soon.
