The Champions League final is here at last – live on talkSPORT – as Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich battle for glory in Lisbon. PSG are looking for their first ever triumph in the competition’s history – in their final debut. Meanwhile, the Germans are grizzled veterans, winning the trophy five times having made the final on 10 occasions. Getty Images – Getty Robert Lewandowski and Bayern Munich are in the Champions League final The duo meet in the Estadio da Luz on the back of some brilliant wins in the knockout stages – truncated due to the coronavirus pandemic. Morphed into a knockout tournament of one-legged clashes, the finals have thrilled over the last three weeks. Paris Saint-Germain will be high on confidence after a dramatic win over Atalanta and more straight forward victory against RB Leipzig. Bayern Munich may have embarrassed Barcelona with an 8-2 thrashing but a shakier display against Lyon leaves a few question marks, despite their undoubted attacking brilliance. The stage is set for a stunning clash with both sides better going forward than they are defensively, leaving us all hoping for a tremendous battle for the trophy. You can listen to the Champions League final live on talkSPORT Jason Cundy on why he wants PSG to lose Champions League final What the managers are saying Thomas Tuchel, Paris coach: “My feelings are very hard to describe, even in English. Very hard to describe. From totally exhausted to totally happy. “At the same time, staying focused because the trip is not over. We have a final to play in, which we absolutely want to win. “Stay calm, stay cool, and try to prepare for it like any other game. Don’t do special stuff; the game is special itself, so why should we overload it with videos, with speeches, with motivation?” PSG vs Bayern Munich tips and odds Get Bayern to win at 10/1 or PSG to win at 20/1 HERE* (888 Sport) Get Bayern Munich to win at 4/1 HERE* (Betvictor) Taking one of the bookmaker offers featured in this article may result in a payment to talkSPORT. 18+.

Idrissa Gueye was replaced by Leandro Paredes in midfield as Tuchel sought more progressive passing in the absence of Marco Verratti. The Italian, though, appeared off the bench against the Germans and now could start against Bayern with his technical excellence and tenacious talents off the ball. PSG will no doubt be hoping Keylor Navas is fit but we’d suggest he’ll miss out – a Champions League final is not a game to risk an unfit goalkeeper in, even if it is Keylor Navas. The excellent front trio are set to stay the same, unless Tuchel stumbles upon a new tactic to stop the Bundesliga giants. How PSG should look Bayern Munich team news The Bavarian giants found things a little trickier against Lyon and may now be a little less confident after the French outfit almost took advantage of some of their defensive weaknesses. Even though this has happened, manager Flick is unlikely to make major changes to his side but the fitness of Jerome Boateng does throw up some worries. If the experienced star is out then Niklas Sule will have to step up and he hasn’t started a Champions League match since the 7-2 demolition of Tottenham back in October. Given defensive concerns, and their shaky looking right flank,, we might see Benjamin Pavard come in for Joshua Kimmich, with the versatile ace replacing Leon Goretzka. But doing all that tinkering might do more harm than good.
