Bayern Munich will be hoping to make their greater experience count when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final on Sunday evening.

The Bavarians breezed their way into another European final with a brace from Serge Gnabry and a strike from Robert Lewandowski easing them to a comfortable 3-0 win over Lyon Wednesday evening.

PSG also enjoyed a relatively easy semi-final as they beat RB Leipzig by the same scoreline and Sunday’s final has the potential to be a classic in Lisbon.

Will the Big Stage Get to PSG?

Sunday’s battle will be PSG’s first-ever Champions League final, and they have become the 41st team to reach the showpiece.

Despite the club’s big spending in the last decade, PSG have failed to live up to the hype in Europe, but this year they seem to have learned their lessons.

Neymar seems to be playing more for the team than himself, while the brilliance of Kylian Mbappe has also helped them out of trouble on occasions.

Club captain Thiago Silva looks set to be on his way out, but the Brazilian will be desperate to see out his PSG career in the best possible fashion.

However, the French giants face a Bayern side who look like they mean business after some eye-catching displays against Chelsea and Barcelona.

The 8-2 thrashing of Barca was enough to make the rest of the competition sit up and take notice, and PSG will not have faced a team like Bayern this season.

While PSG are going to give it everything, Bayern should have too much for them in Portugal, and a Bayern victory at 21/20 is worth considering.

Goals Galore in Lisbon

On their way to the final, both sides have found the back of the net with ease, with Bayern scoring 15 in three European matches.

PSG’s five goals in two also shows they do not lack in confidence, and with Mauro Icardi, Mbappe and Angel Di Maria in their ranks, anything can happen.

The history books suggest we will get an open and expansive game, with PSG winning five of their last eight matches.

Bayern have scored 42 goals in ten games in the Champions League this season, and they are looking to break a record on Sunday.

Hansi Flick’s men have won their last ten Champions League matches, and they are looking to become the first team in history to win 11 in a row.

Over 3.5 goals is worth considering this weekend, and at 1/1, it could tempt plenty of punters on Sunday.

Lewandowski Looking to Make History

Poland international Lewandowski has scored 15 goals in Europe this season, just two behind the record Cristiano Ronaldo set in 2013/14.

Lewandowski scored his 55th goal of the season during the win over Lyon, and he will be confident of exposing the PSG defence.

If PSG’s defence switches off for any second, Lewandowski will punish them, and he is worth backing at 5/2 to score first.
