Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich – LIVE!

Kingsley Coman headed Bayern Munich to a sixth Champions League title in Lisbon, scoring against boyhood club Paris Saint-Germain to seal a 1-0 victory.

The 24-year-old ghosted in at the far post unchecked by the PSG defence and met a cross from Joshua Kimmich in the 59th minute.

The result completes an incredible transformation this season under Hansi Flick, who took charge in November with Bayern fourth in the Bundesliga.

The season is now over – three months later than planned due to the coronavirus pandemic pause in play – with Bayern treble winners.

Team news

Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has opted for French midfielder Kingsley Coman instead of Ivan Perisic on the left flank for Sunday’s Champions League final against Paris St Germain.

Jerome Boateng is fit to start in the Bayern central defence, having recovered from a knock picked up in the semi-final win over Olympique Lyonnais.

PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas returns to the starting lineup having recovered from injury but midfielder Marco Verratti has to settle for a place on the bench.

PSG confirmed XI: Navas, Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Ander Herrera, Marquinhos, Paredes, Di Maria, Neymar, Mbappe
Subs: Verratti, Sergio Rico, Choupo-Moting, Icardi, Sarabia, Kurzawa, Diallo, Draxler, Bakker, Gueye, Bulka, Dagba

Prediction: PSG 2-3 Bayern Munich

This is an incredibly difficult final to call, with both sides boasting hugely potent attacking units that can swing a game on any given day.

Prolific Bayern have been absurdly consistent over recent months, clocking up 28 wins from 29 matches since December 2019, yet Lyon did have their chances before falling behind in Wednesday’s semi-final contest.

Likewise PSG were fortunate not to suffer another embarrassing quarter-final exit at the hands of Atalanta, so neither defence is impregnable.

Hopefully we can expect a high-scoring and wildly entertaining contest that is likely to be decided by the odd goal.

Bayern to edge their 11th final and join Liverpool to become the joint-third most successful club in Champions League history with a sixth crown.

A place in the Uefa Super Cup against Sevilla would then await in the Hungarian capital of Budapest on September 24.
