PSG v Bayern Munich build-up, previous line-ups & pre-match team news:
History will be made regardless of the winner, for PSG a chance to win their first crown and France’s second after Marseille triumphed in the inaugural Champions League final, which took place 27 years ago.
Bayern, meanwhile, are gunning for their sixth title and second historic treble — subsequently joining Barcelona in this very exclusive club — while becoming the first side in history to lift the prize having won every game they played.
This will also be the 10th meeting between the respective Ligue 1 and Bundesliga champions with PSG edging the head-to-head (5-4).
- PSG (vs RB Leipzig): Rico; Kehrer, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Marquinhos, Herrera, Paredes; Di María, Neymar, Mbappé.
- Bayern Munich (vs Lyon): Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng*, Alaba; Goretzka, Thiago; Gnabry, Müller, Perisic; Lewandowski.
Marco Verratti says he’s ready to play the full 90 minutes but it remains to be seen whether Tuchel agrees with his metronomic deep-lying playmaker. Layvin Kurzawa, who just returned to first-team training, is a doubt alongside Keylor Navas and Idrissa Gueye.
RMC report that Kingsley Coman will replace Ivan Perisic on the left wing in Bayern’s lineup.
Jérome Boateng is a fitness concern for Bayern Munich after picking up a knock in their semi-final win over Lyon while Benjamin Pavard was declared fit during Hansi Flick’s pre-match press conference and, according to one Twitter rumour, could start in midfield in place of Thiago.
As suggested by tweeter, former Norway international turned journalist Jan Age Fjortoft, it is to be taken with a pinch of salt. Thiago won much praise in his semi-final performance and this will be his last competitive game with Bayern.
Writing for the Sunday Times, former England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney said of him: “[Thiago] almost came to United in 2013 and now Liverpool are linked with him.
“He’s one of the best midfielders around – I just hope he doesn’t go there.
“He can take the ball, be composed on it, keep things ticking over – and he’ll put his foot in. He’s an all-round midfielder, really, with a bit of everything.
“He backs up that Bayern press and he drops in between the centre halves to take the ball yet can also join in when they’re playing around the other box too.
“He’s a great player. It would be great to see him in the Premier League, actually.”
Players to watch:
PSG: For a team full of marquee names, it’s the least spoken about who could decide the contest in PSG’s favour. Neymar and Kylian Mbappé are match-winners in their own right, both capable of taking a game away from the opposition, but in Portugal and this season’s tournament overall, they’ve enjoyed the backseat seeing others around them step up to the plate. This distribution of responsibility is the basis behind the Parisians finally achieving their potential in world football’s premier club competition. Having experienced winners helps, and PSG have one in the guise of Ángel Di María, who was 2014 final’s Man of the Match in 2014 when Real Madrid won their 10th European Cup, a longtime obsession of Los Blancos that was termed La Decima.
The Argentine winger is also on course to be named Champions League ‘assist king’ after creating no fewer than six goals, only Thomas Müller (23) and Joshua Kimmich (27) — who’ll be starting the final — have created more chances than him (20).
Between Madrid and Paris in Di Maria’s career path is Manchester United. There, he lasted just one, disappointing season but clearly left an impression on one of his teammates.
The club’s all-time top-scorer, Rooney, believes “PSG’s match-winner might just be Di Maria.”
He added: “He’s a wonderful player. When he came to United, I remember Louis van Gaal saying to the team: ‘He is the only one who is allowed to dribble with the ball.’
“Angel works tirelessly on the pitch and his delivery, vision and awareness is brilliant.
“He could have been a major star at United but at the time we were going through a bit of a transition and it was tough for him to settle.
“He had young kids and lived a couple of houses down from me and someone tried to burgle him. I remember that really shook him and his family.
“From then on, really, you knew it was going to be tough for him and it was probably better for him to leave.”
Bayern Munich: It’s been a season to remember for Canadian full-back Alphonso Davies who, despite being just 19 years old, can lay claim to being world football’s preeminent left-back. If that sounds hyperbolic then it shouldn’t as he’s playing well beyond his years.
Davies’ athleticism coupled with natural exuberance makes him a presence at both ends of the pitch. A key battle in the Lisbon final is the one between him and Mbappé. Both are lightning-fast and will give it as good as they get. Mbappé normally has the full-back he’s up against on toast, but this could be a different experience for him, as no defender has completed more take-ons (26) in this season’s Champions League than Bayern’s latest teenage sensation.
