After two anti-climatic semi-final matches in the UEFA Champions League, we finally have the heavyweight final everyone wants to see. It’s Paris Saint-Germain versus FC Bayern Munich for all of the marbles.
On the latest episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Guillaume and Matt to discuss PSG’s win over RB Leipzig last Wednesday and we look ahead to the matchup against Bayern in the final on Sunday.
Up first, I ask the crew how they felt heading into the match against Leipzig and why that match was so easy for the Ligue 1 champions. Was it the return of Angel Di Maria that made the difference or was it the defense who continued their outstanding play in the tournament?
Speaking of the lineup, what changes should manager Thomas Tuchel make against Bayern Munich? We discuss potential lineup changes that could work against the German’s style of play and why PSG has some extra motivation to defeat Bayern (hint: it has something to do with Juan Bernat and Tanguy Kouassi).
If there’s a reason to worry, it’s the lack of finishing from Neymar Jr. despite playing well overall. Surely his shot won’t be off for a third match, right? Also, we all agree that Keylor Navas has to return as Sergio Rico looked shaky against Leipzig.
We wrap up the show by talking about the media’s coverage of PSG’s run to the final and answer your questions sent via Twitter.
