5 things to know about UEFA final 2020
Let’s have a look at the 5 things that could decide the champions.
- Both teams are in the form of their lives
As we all know for the past few years both of the teams are dominant in their respective domestic leagues. Bayern effortlessly won Bundesliga this season and PSG was 12 points cleared from the second position team, and later they were crowned as champions. In the last 8 seasons, PSG has won seven times and Bayern won its 8th league title in a row, such a dominance.
Currently, Bayern Munich is on a 28 match unbeaten streak in all competition and now they’ll be looking for a treble.
- Some of the best attackers in both the teams
Robert Lewandowski is leading the attack of Bayern Munich and arguably he is one of the best no. 9 in the world right now. Especially, this season he has scored 55 goals in all competitions, which is the most in Europe. Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry both are backing up their striker and bolstering Bayern attack.
On the other hand, PSG has Neymar who is completed the most number of dribbles against Atlanta, but frustratingly enough he wasn’t able to finish well. But we know he can single-handedly change the result of the match. Kylian Mbappe, the world’s best youngest player who already has won the World cup at the age of 21, combined with Neymar can be lethal and demolish any defense.
- The defense is not up to the mark
Both teams have been struggling defensively this season. Their defenses are not watertight at all this season. For example, in the semifinal against Lyon, they have given up so many chances in the early stages, if Lyon players were able to utilize the chances then the result could be difficult but in the end, they got an easy win.
PSG is relying on the their defensive midfielders Marquinhos and Ander Herrera. Their Centre Backs are solid but penetrable. Now, Thiago Silva is turned 35, it is highly unlikely that he can keep up with pacey Alphonso Davies.
- Exciting Youngsters
If it comes to youngsters in football, the first player comes in mind is Kylian Mbappe, who has already won the World Cup 2019 with France and if he manages to win the UCL then he’ll be in the elite club of players who won both the UCL and the World Cup, Even modern-day greats Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo haven’t achieved this feat.
Bayern Munich’s left-back, Alphonso Davies is also a player to watch out for in the UCL final. He is still a teenager and already been among the world’s best LB. He’ll be first-ever, Canadian Male player to play a Champions League Final.
- History Backs Bayern Munich
If Bayern Munich won this year’s champions league then they will be doing it for the sixth time as same as FC Barcelona. They have played in the final 10 times. The last time they won the UCL was in 2013.
The case is entirely different for the PSG, this is for the first time in the history of the club that they have reached a European Cup final. As for head to head records, PSG has won more times. Let’s see how things turned out.
