Paris St-Germain are hoping to win tonight’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich in Lisbon. If they win it’ll be their first victory in Europe’s footballing showcase.
They are the fifth French side to reach a European Cup/Champions League final, and are the first since Monaco in 2004. Only one of the previous four teams has been victorious, with Marseille winning 1-0 against AC Milan in the 1993 final.
They face a massive challenge to win against an inform Bayern team whose 29 match unbeaten run includes thrashing the mighty Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter final.
PSG are likely to be missing first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas, with a muscle injury. Marco Verratti is available and boss Thomas Tuchel now faces a big decision over whether to start him or not after just a few minutes of action in the semi final victory over RB Leipzig.
Jerome Boateng is the only injury worry for Bayern after he came off in the semi-final. If Boateng misses out then Niklas Sule could replace him after making his way back to fitness, though he hasn’t yet started a match. Joshua Kimmich could move into midfield if Hansi Flick opts to start with Benjamin Pavard at right-back after he also returned from an injury.
