Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich – Champions League Finals: odds & betting preview
The elongated 2019-20 campaign reaches its climax on Sunday with the Champions League final.
Paris Saint-Germain will be aiming to clinch their first Champions League trophy when they take on Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich at Estadio da Luz.
PSG will be competing in the Champions League final for the first time after cruising past RB Leipzig in the first semi-final, while Bayern are aiming to be crowned European champions for the sixth time having reached the final at the expense of Lyon.
Les Parisiens set up a meeting with the German champions by rolling over Leipzig 3-0. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, booked their place in the final by beating Olympique Lyon 3-0.
Reason for PSG vs. Bayern Munich predictions:
- Bayern Munich have won each of their last 20 competitive matches.
- Die Roten have won all ten Champions League games this season.
- PSG have averaged 2.5 goals per game in this season’s competition and have scored in 34 consecutive Champions League fixtures.
- Bayern Munich have scored exactly three goals in five of their ten Champions League games this season.
It has already been a fantastic season for Bayern, who won the Bundesliga for the eighth year in succession before lifting the German Cup, but they will be eager to complete the treble with their first Champions League success since 2013.
Bayern is unbeaten in their last 29 competitive games, they have plundered 158 goals in all competitions, failing to score in only two of 51 matches, and they have scored 42 goals in their 10 European games. Bayern, meanwhile, are five-time champions of Europe.
PSG propelled themselves one step closer to their Qatari owners’ dream last week with an assured performance against surprise package RB Leipzig, hammering the young German club 3-0 to send the Parisians to their first ever Champions League Final.
Of the previous five meetings between these two teams, Bayern have come out on top three times and all those victories have come by a two-goal margin.
Les Parisiens have averaged 2.5 goals per game in the Champions League this season and, with Bayern Munich scoring exactly three goals in half of their Champions League fixtures this term.
This is Bayern’s 11th Champions League final and PSG’s first, we simply have to give the German side the advantage.
