PSG heads into their first-ever Champions League final as the outsider, with Bayern – competing in their eleventh UCL final – the favorite. It’s difficult to argue with the bookies’ viewpoint here.
But as we all know; anything can happen at this stage of the tournament. There have already been plenty of surprises this season, and regardless of Bayern’s pedigree, you’d be foolish to write off PSG in a one-off game.
PSG vs. Bayern Munich Preview
It feels like PSG has been waiting for this moment for a very long time. The mega-rich French side has enjoyed no end of domestic success throughout the past decade, but the team has continuously failed to perform on the European stage. Now, the Parisians are just one win away from establishing themselves as an elite force in European soccer.
Needless to say, PSG cruised to yet another Ligue 1 last term, albeit in unfamiliar circumstances. But Thomas Tuchel’s men have also been ruthless in the Champions League. After finishing five points clear of Real Madrid at the top of Group B, PSG saw off Borussia Dortmund, Atalanta, and RB Leipzig in the knockout stages to book their place in the final.
Many believed that the French side struggles to cope with Leipzig, but Tuchel’s team passed their semi-final test with flying colors, dispatching the German club 3-0.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich has been steamrolling everything in its path. Hansi Flick’s machine-scored 24 goals across six group-stage wins – conceding just five goals along the way – before crushing Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate in the Round of 16. An outrageous 8-2 demolition of Barcelona followed, with a slightly less eventful 3-0 semi-final victory over Lyon coming five days later.
It’s been a real team effort from Bayern this season, but the efforts of Robert Lewandowski cannot be ignored. The lethal striker has netted 55 goals in 45 games in all competitions this term, with 15 goals and six assists in just nine UCL appearances.
It’s also worth mentioning that Bayern hasn’t lost since December 7! An unstoppable run of 19 wins and one draw saw the club secure an eighth straight Bundesliga title, finishing 13 points ahead of second-place Dortmund with a century of goals to their name.
PSG vs. Bayern Munich Prediction and Pick
Bayern Munich to Win2.05
Whatever happens on Sunday, there will be goals. Both these teams love to attack, although there is no denying that Bayern Munich is a more complete team. PSG hasn’t done remarkably well to get this far. But in my eyes, this is Bayern’s final to lose.
