The 1970 Podcast: PSG Join the European Elite With Champions League Final Appearance

Paris Saint-Germain booked their ticket to the UEFA Champions League final on Wednesday with an emphatic 3-0 win over RB Leipzig at the Estádio da Luz.

It’s the first time Les Parisiens have reached the final of the prestigious tournament in their 50-year history and fans celebrated around the world after the final whistle as did the PSG Talk crew. However, there’s business to attend to and we’re pleased to bring you a 1970 podcast.

On this episode, Marc Damon is joined by fellow contributor Ty and the duo break down the win over Leipzig and explain how PSG made it look so easy. It’s been a long time coming for supporters and finally, with all the chips on the table, PSG elevated their play and Leipzig didn’t even look like they belonged on the same pitch.

No discussion of this match would be complete without giving Angel Di Maria his credit. The winger was suspended against Atalanta in the quarter-finals but he returned to the squad and was the Man of the Match.

The podcast was recorded prior to the FC Bayern Munich vs. Olympique Lyonnais match but the crew rightly assumed the Germans would advance and they provide some thoughts on the final matchup and why Juan Bernat, in particular, will be up for this match. They also discuss whether or not Mauro Icardi should return to the starting lineup or if his limitations are too risky against a club like Bayern that did defeat FC Barcelona 8-2.

Before that match though, let’s just enjoy this feeling of reaching the Champions League final. There’s a lot of PSG fans out there that have been following the club for a long time and never thought they would be in this final. This is a major moment in the club’s history and we should embrace every second of it. Allez PSG!
