The Champions League final: build-up
It's probably not quite the final most people were expecting, but it's hard to argue against the fact that these have been the two most impressive sides in the Covid-delayed competition.
Paris Saint-Germain have been knocking on the door of the Champions League final and, after seven consecutive visits to the knockout stages, they've now made it. And all it took was the little matter of a squad that cost roughly €780 million to assemble. But that shouldn't count against the achievement of Thomas Tuchel's squad and the all-star line-up that includes Angel Di Maria, Kylian Mbappé, captain Thiago Silva and the world's most expensive footballer, Neymar.
Between them and the famous trophy is one of European football's biggest behemoths. Like PSG, Bayern Munich are used to steam-rollering the domestic competition season after season, but they also have plenty of experience on this stage, too. A win in Portugal tonight and their sixth title would make them the equal third most successful side in Champions League history. As always, the effervescent Thomas Müller will be the linchpin for the Germans, while Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry and Philippe Coutinho have all been among the goals in various dismantlings of foes over the course of the campaign.
It's a tantalising prospect ahead tonight, so read on to discover how to get a PSG vs Bayern Munich live stream for free – even if you happen to be out of the UK.
