It’s the dream Champions League final, between the two teams that have shown the most quality since the quarter-final stage of the competition.
It’s true that the 2019/20 football season will be forever remembered for the coronavirus pandemic, but Bayern Munich and PSG have a chance to sign off in the best possible style in the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon on Sunday.
For Bayern, a cool little slice of history awaits them as they look to win their first Champions League title since 2013. They are currently tied with Real Madrid for the most consecutive wins in this competition – they have won ten on the spin and counting, so if they can triumph in Sunday’s final then they will break that record to cap a fantastic season. Intriguingly, they are now 28 games unbeaten under new head coach Hansi Flick.
Speaking of history, how’s about this for a fact about PSG – despite being arguably the richest club in the world, they are still yet to win the Champions League title! They will be looking to make amends for that, and write themselves into the club’s folklore, in what should be a thoroughly entertaining final.
But who will prevail in this battle between the continental giants? In this PSG vs Bayern Munich preview we aim to find out.
And, of course, we will be offering up some Bayern Munich vs PSG betting tips in an attempt to profit from the action.
When we use the evidence of Bayern Munich vs PSG in the Champions League since the football season resumed in June, we see Bayern Munich and PSG at the absolute top of their form.
We’ve already written about Bayern’s form in 2020, and that has extended to this competition where they have been irresistible since the return.
Even though Barcelona are poor at the moment, can we really legislate for them losing 2-8 to the German champions? That was testament to how devastating Bayern are in attack, with the most prolific striker in world football in Robert Lewandowski backed up by the creative talents of Muller, Gnabry, Perisic, Kimmich, Davies and co. It was those combinations that led to them thrashing Lyon 3-0 in the semi-finals too.
The focus is now on Paris. We want to give it everything we have. I don’t think that the attacking game of Lyon is far worse than PSG. They were ambitious in attack. We lost possession which we have to stop doing. Now we have to rest and on Sunday try to win the title with another top performance against Paris. - Hans Flick after the match against Lyon, The Guardian
As for PSG, they showed their stomach for a fight in their 2-1 win over Atalanta in the quarters. The Italians are a really dangerous team and one of the most free-scoring on the continent, but PSG were able to keep them at bay for long enough to wrap up the win and breathe a huge sigh of relief.
In the semi-finals, they had things much easier against RB Leipzig, with their front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel di Maria in devastating form.
3. PSG vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips
There is an overwhelming sense that these two teams are better in attack than they are in defence, and that has to be the focal point of our PSG vs Bayern predictions.
Bayern have got attacking quality all over the pitch, and their full backs will bomb forward – leaving space in behind for PSG’s fast front three to take advantage of. It could be a very entertaining game of cat and mouse.
Both of these sides have scored goals in abundance of late, and we don’t expect the importance of this game to have any impact upon the style of play – both will stick to what they know.
We believe that the Germans are just a shade stronger than the French team, and so that is the key factor in our Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain betting predictions. However, we don’t expect the Parisians to go quietly, and so instead of taking the 1.95 about a Bayern win how about instead backing Bayern to Win & Both Teams to Score at 3.00?
