It’s here, and it’s going to be electric. The Champions League final has arrived in all its splendour with PSG and Bayern Munich ready for one last dance to round off the 2019/20 football season.
The year-long adventure is approaching the endgame with two of the most ferocious teams in European – and world – football ready to battle it out for supremacy.
Hot favourites Bayern Munich have been relentless during the lockdown Champions League fixtures. They romped to a 4-1 victory over Chelsea, an 8-2 dismantling of Barcelona and a 3-0 crushing of Lyon to earn their place in the final.
Robert Lewandowski has bagged 15 goals in nine European games this season to blow away the competition in the Champions League top scorers stakes, but his supporting cast have been just as impressive behind closed doors.
Similar can be said for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at PSG. They may be the main men on paper, but the third member of their attacking trio, Angel Di Maria, has stolen the show for the Ligue 1 giants in the competition.
They have triumphed over goal-happy Atalanta and a fresh RB Leipzig unit to reach the final showdown, but which side will hold their nerve as the Champions League draws to a close?

PSG v Bayern Munich team news
PSG: Mbappe is a nailed-on starter for PSG after showing no negative effects of returning from injury in the previous rounds.
He will start alongside Neymar and Di Maria with Mauro Icardi consigned to the bench. Contrary to reports, no players will face suspensions after swapping shirts at the end of the Leipzig game, allegedly going against UEFA coronavirus safety protocol.
No.1 keeper Keylor Navas missed the semi-finals with a hamstring issue. Usually the word ‘hamstring’ is synonymous with ‘three weeks out’ but reports in France suggest it was a minor problem and he should return for the final in place of Sergio Rico.
Bayern Munich: Philippe Coutinho has given Hansi Flick a major headache ahead of the final. He bagged two goals and an assist against parent club Barcelona in the quarters, and looked very promising against Lyon – scoring an offside goal – from the bench. He could force his way into the XI.
Jerome Boateng was replaced by Niklas Sule at half-time in the semi-finals due to a muscular problem, but he is expected to be fit to start the final.
Bayern have no suspended players going into the game.
Our prediction: PSG v Bayern Munich
Well, this is probably the closest thing to a curse you’ll read all day but there are so many goals to be scored in this one.
Anyone who has watched both teams during their lockdown Champions League fixtures will know neither side is airtight.
For all Munich’s dominance, they still conceded twice to a disjointed Barcelona team and Lyon should have found the net a couple of times in the opening stages of the semi-finals.
PSG haven’t had to contend with great surges of attacking power so far, but their front three are not required to track back as often, potentially opening up gaps for Gnabry to wriggle through.
Eyebrow-raising defences aside, both teams boast a ridiculous crop of attackers and will not hold back trying to exploit each other’s weaknesses.
Logic suggests a goal-fest, and while finals are usually far more cagey than standard encounters, expect both teams to play to their strengths here. Attack, attack, attack.
Our prediction: PSG 2-3 Bayern Munich
