At long last, Paris Saint-Germain have made it to a Champions League final – their ownership group’s ultimate goal is close to being achieved, but there’s plenty of reason to believe this is just the start regardless of Sunday’s result.

Bayern Munich represent arguably the toughest possible opponent, particularly for PSG, who few would say are blessed with an impregnable defence.

Yet, as Lyon and Barcelona – despite their respective defeats – proved in the previous two rounds, Bayern’s set-up can allow for opportunities on the counter and that could play into PSG’s hands.

With Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe in fine form and unplayable on their day, it seems unlikely PSG won’t get chances.

While the former pair’s dazzling abilities on the ball can unlock space, Mbappe’s pace could be vital in potentially exposing Jerome Boateng.

The 21-year-old is already among the elite, and that suggests a frightening future lies in wait for Mbappe and PSG – but can they begin forging a legacy this weekend?
