Bayern Faces PSG In Champions League Final Clash
For the first time since 1998, the Champions League final will feature two teams who entered the competition as domestic champions.
Bayern Munich, five-times Champions League winners, are back in the final for the first time since 2013 after ending a streak of four losses in the semi-final stage with Wednesday’s comfortable 3-0 win over Lyon.
Bayern have been on fire in Europe, crushing all obstacles on their way to the final of the 2020 UEFA Champions League final.
They are the favorites to lift the trophy on Sunday night in Lisbon to cap a scintillating season after claiming the Bundesliga trophy earlier.
However, Paris Saint-Germain are in a dream land and they want to wake up with the trophy after a long chase.
PSG have reached the final for the first time, having struggled to translate their dominance of the French league into a real challenge in Europe until wins over Atalanta and RB Leipzig secured their place.
They have reached only their third major UEFA final.
They have all the players to make it happen but the question is; “Is this finally their year?” Will their stars turn up this time?
However, on Sunday, he stands potentially 90 minutes away from completing his mission.
The 28-year-old scored in the 2015 final for Barcelona and could become only the third player to score in the final for two different teams, along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic.
In 19 Champions League appearances for PSG, Neymar has been directly involved in 23 goals, scoring 14 times and assisting nine.
Neymar traded the Nou Camp for the Parc des Princes having been instrumental in consigning PSG to La Remontada in 2017 and with Kylian Mbappe subsequently making his move from Monaco permanent the follow summer for £163m, this is a side that was bought at an exorbitant cost in order to reign across Europe.
