It’s Lewandowski and Muller vs Neymar and Mbappe! Watch live coverage of the PSG vs Bayern Munich Champions League final from Lisbon.
The UEFA Champions League final will bring down the curtain on the 2019-20 season in Europe with a showdown between Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain and Bundesliga winners Bayern Munich.
Studded with the top stars in men's football, both PSG and Bayern have been great to watch in the run to the showpiece game of the top continental tournament. It's set to be a thrilling final on Sunday evening in Lisbon, which will have tv coverage broadcast live and available for streaming in India in the early hours of Monday morning.
Having won the UEFA Champions League five times, Bayern Munich are the far more experienced side in the final.
Starting their campaign last year in a group clubbed with Tottenham Hotspur, Olympiacos, and Red Star Belgrade, Bayern Munich finished atop the table with maximum points (18) available.
There were tougher opponents – Chelsea, Barcelona, and Olympique Lyonnais – waiting in the knockout stages, but the German champions upstaged all with relative ease, scoring a whopping 18 goals and conceding only three.
This will be a first appearance in the UCL final for French club Paris Saint-Germain.
Clubbed alongside La Liga giants Real Madrid, Club Brugge, and Galatasaray in the group stage of the pan-European competition, the French team finished top of the table with 16 points from five wins and a draw.
PSG came past Bundesliga runner-up Borussia Dortmund, Serie A aspirants Atalanta, and German team RB Leipzig in the knockouts and Thomas Tuchel’s side was clinical with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at the heart of their engine.
Paris-Saint Germain will be sweating to get Idrissa Gueye fit for the Champions League final as the midfielder remains an important cog in the wheel. The Senegalese international picked up a muscle injury before the semi-final and could only make the bench for PSG.
Apart from him, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping to get veteran Keylor Navas - a three-time UCL winner with Real Madrid - fit for the crucial match as well.
Full-back Layvin Kurzawa and midfielder Marco Verratti, however, remain doubtful.
Bayern have a largely fit squad for the Champions League final and they will be hoping to get Benjamin Pavard available as well after the right-back made a bench appearance against Lyon in the semi-final.
