Bayern Munich or Real Madrid? PSG’s Luis Enrique Responds of Who He’d Want to Face

Paris Saint-Germain will face Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League semifinal after advancing past FC Barcelona last Tuesday. Nonetheless, some see the French giants in Wembley Stadium for the final, but manager Luis Enrique isn’t getting carried away.

The Parisians will play the Bundesliga side for a third and fourth time this season after the two teams met in the group stage. Meanwhile, on the other side of the bracket, Bayern Munich will face Real Madrid with a ticket to London on the line.

Enrique spoke with the media on Saturday ahead of the Ligue 1 match against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday. One of the questions that he responded to was what team he’d like to face in the final: Bayern Munich or Real Madrid?

“We must first eliminate the team that finished first in our group of death, knocking out Dortmund,” Enrique told reporters. “It’ll be a very tough and exciting tie. I’m sure Dortmund has the same hope and desire like us of reaching the final. When we qualify for the final, and I hope we do, then I will respond to this question.”

PSG will face Dortmund for the first leg on May 1st, and then the scene shifts to the French capital for the second leg on May 7th. A final against Bayern Munich is a rematch of the 2020 edition when the Germans prevailed over the capital club.

However, many want to see the final at PSG-Real Madrid, where Kylian Mbappé faces the team he’s reportedly set to join this summer as a free agent.
