One of the most unusual football campaigns finally comes to a tail end Sunday night, as French champions PSG take on German Champions Bayern Munich in the finals of the UEFA Champions League at the Estadio da Luz, Lisbon.

French quadruple winners PSG have never lifted the champions league before, and finally ended their semifinal exile of 25 years after a dramatic late comeback win over plucky underdogs Atlanta in the quarter-finals and a comfortable 3-0 defeat of RB Leipzig last time out.

PSG top group A ahead of former Champions Real Madrid in the preliminary stage prior before eliminating Borussia Dortmund in the last 16, just before the pandemic situation.

Meanwhile, the German Champions who are 5 times Champions of Europe, where they last tested success in 2013 would be looking to lay their hands on it once again.

The Germans eased past Lyon in a 3 goals fashion in the semi-final, and with a ruthless scoreline of 8-2 in one leg affair to demolish Barcelona in the quarter-final, as they completed 7-1 aggregate defeat to Chelsea also cruised out top in group B with the maximum point.

Victory for PSG on Sunday will not only see them as the first-timer but also the second French side to win after Marseille in 1993.

PSG could also equal the record set by Celtic in 1967 after the Scottish giants lifted a quadruple of European cup, League title, Scottish Cup and League Cup.

On the other side, Bayern will clinch their second treble after achieving it in 2013 and will become the second European club after Barcelona 2015.
