The UEFA Champions League final will be held on Sunday, and the favorite Bayern Munich will compete with the Paris Saint-Germain team for the highest European football award in Lisbon.
The coronavirus pandemic interrupted the normal operation of the competition between the two legs, so both teams faced an unprecedented path in the game. In the finals on Sunday, there will be many stars playing. The offensive duo of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will face Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski, breakout starter Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies rising star.
PSG made it to the final for the first time in the club’s history. It immediately played the first European semi-final in 25 years. The Parisian may be known for his ability to suffocate early in the game. From 2013 to 2016, they entered the quarter-finals of the competition every year and were eliminated.
As mentioned earlier, this is the first time in the history of Paris Saint-Germain that it has entered the UEFA Champions League final. If history tells everything, they may not leave Lisbon with the trophy.
French clubs have not had much success in the Champions League or the European Cup. PSG became the fifth French finalist and the first since Monaco lost to Jose Mourinho’s Porto in 2004.
Although the frustration is not exactly the same as that of PSG, the Bundesliga side has dealt with its own problems when breaking through certain parts of the game in recent years. From 2014 to 2018, they lost four semi-finals. Bayern Munich have set various records in the UEFA Champions League this season. If they score more three points in the PSG game, they will equal the record of 45 goals set by Barcelona in the 1999/20 season.
