Description: BAY Vs PSG Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Bayern Munich will to wrap up a pinch perfect and emphatic soiree with their hands around the sparkling trophy.
This is what the Champions League 2019-20 boils down to. Hindered by Coronavirus, forced to shift to Portugal and rework its format amidst the ongoing pandemic, nothing in the end could curb Europa’s most gargantuan footballing tournament taking to the stage.
And the last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind affair. The newly conceptualised schedule has dished out some sublime encounters with enthralling riveting brand of football seeing Bayern Munich and PSG emerge into today’s coveted showpiece summit clash after winning their respective semi-finals 3-0.
For Bayern Munich, the ongoing campaign on the Champions League has been nothing short of a dream. The side has gone from strength to strength since the tournament’s onset to win every single of their outings in the league till date, hitting 42 goals on way to laying a stake on what would be their 6th triumph in the marquee tournament.
After a bevy of appalling results and failure to make it past the quarter-finals for three successive seasons, PSG finally find themselves in the final of the Champions League. Although the side has not had the easiest of journey with the team having to scrap and scamper its way to some hard fought results, the team is capable of making life tricky for Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich tend to play a high line defensively and given the speed to burn Mbappe and Neymar possess, the Germans could see things get jittery for them. However, this is a Bayern Munich team which has schooled sides, winning 28 of its last 29 fixtures, a side whose pulsating attack should see it emerge with the trophy under its arms.

Dream 11 Picks
Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer was reasonable for ensuring his side didn’t go onto concede first against Lyon. With Lyon utilising their speed upfront to traverse past Bayern Munich’s defence, Manuel had to come up with a string of saves to keep his side’s cleansheet intact in the encounter.
Alphonso Davies is fast making a name for himself in the footballing fraternity. Despite only six months in his new found leftback role, the player has taken no time to find his footing in the league with his expansive acumen of the game seeing him take to the role like a fish takes to water.
He has emerged as a crucial name not only in the side’s defence attack as well with a slew of assists in the tournament making him a must have pick. Slotting in next to him is rightback Joshua Kimmich whose goal against Barcelona was followed up by two assists against Lyon.
Elsewhere, we have the CB pairing of Presnel Kimpembe and Thiago Silva being opted for from PSG. Playing his last match for PSG before he leaves the club, Silva will be hungry to taste Champions League success with the club, a narrative which is bound to spur him on.
Serge Gnabry was once again the fulcrum of his side’s win. With two goals to his name against Lyon, the Bayern Munich player has a staggering 9 goals to his name in the competition, a figure which is a testament to his ability to send down scorchers into the goal.
Moving in next to him is Thiago Alacantra. The midfielder is increasingly looking set for an exit from the club after this encounter, one he’ll be looking to use to show the footballing world why his services need to be snagged up instantly.
PSG meanwhile see a duo make its way into our side from the team as well. Its one comprising of Angel who came up with the one goal and two assists against RB Leipzig, a performance which guided PSG to a clinical 3-0 win on the day.
Marquinhos has now scored in two ties on the bounce with him opening the side’s scoring against the German side to see the PSG man form the duo from the club.
Robert Lewandowksi has gone berserk this season. In what his undoubtedly his best ever season in his career, he’s scored in every single Champions League tie this season to assure himself of the title of the tournament’s top scorer.
PSG meanwhile see us opt for Kylian Mbappe. Its his formidable ability to run past defences and complete his moves with emphatic finishes which alluded us towards the pick of the five goal and five assist player.
Captain And Vice-Captain
A behemoth 15 goals mean Robert was the only name we contemplated as our side’s captain while Gnabry is the vice-captain.
