We’ve delivered some huge results across soccer competitions this season and we aren’t quite done just yet. The UEFA Champions League final is on Monday morning (AEST) between two powerhouses in Paris Saints-Germain and Bayern Munich. As always, we bring you our preview and betting tips for the match right here. Good luck to everyone following!
Paris Saint-Germain navigated their way through what was a pretty favourable group stage. The only other big name was Real Madrid, who they were able to win and draw against in their two games en route to a 5-1-0 first place finish. PSG found themselves in a tricky situation when they trailed Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash, but responded with a 2-0 win at home and backed it up with a win over Atalanta in the quarters, before dispatching an over performing RB Leipzig unit in the semis.
Predicted XI: Rico; Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Verratti, Marquinhos, Herrera; Di María, Neymar, Mbappé
Bayern Munich have always been a formidable force in world soccer and they seem to be only getting better. They wiped the floor with the three other teams in their group, notching a 6-0-0 record, which included two wins over Tottenham. Bayern continued their form in the knockout stages with wins over Chelsea in both Round of 16 legs, before demolishing Barcelona 8-2 in the quarters and proving too strong for Lyon in the semis in a 3-0 victory.
Predicted XI: Neuer; Kimmich, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Goretzka, Thiago; Perišić, Müller, Gnabry; Lewandowski
PSG and Bayern Munich have only played nine times in their rich history but only three meeting have come in the last five years, which is all you should be looking at if you’re a H2H buff. PSG won their 2017 meeting in the UCL group stage 3-0, but Bayern responded with a 3-1 win shortly after and also won their 2018 meeting in the International Champions Cup by three goals to one.
PSG have a number of genuine superstars in their line-up, headlined by their key goal scorer in Kylian Mbappe who’s just 21 years of age. They’ve been fantastic in the domestic league where they won the title for the third straight season, but would be even more pleased by making the Champions League final for the first time in club history.
With all of that said, PSG come up against an absolute powerhouse club in Bayern Munich that have arguably the best striker in the world in Robert Lewandowski in their attack, but also have 5-6 other players that would put their hands up for Team of the Year honours. All things considered, PSG have been great, but Bayern Munich are the best team in the world and will prove just why with a dominant performance in the UCL final.
