Bayern manager, Hansi Flick has confessed his free goal scoring side, would be in for a tough battle against star studded PSG in the UEFA Champions League final on Sunday at the Estádio da Luz (Stadium of Light) in Lisbon. The 55 year-old manager, who only took charge of the top German side in November is worried his side won’t survive PSG should they make the same defensive mistakes made against Lyon in Wednesday night’s semi final which Bayern won by 2-0. “We survived against Lyon with a bit of luck, especially at the start… We were losing possession which we have to stop doing. Now we have to rest and on Sunday to win the title we have to be at our best and put up another top performance,” were Flick’s words moments after the game against Lyon.
The coach who has before now never coached a top-flight club until he succeeded Niko Kovac at Bayern was full of praise for semi final two goal hero Serge Gnabry for saving the club on a night that was obviously not that of Muller or even Robert Lewandowski, although Lewandowski finally managed to find the back of the net with only two minutes to go. Gnabry struck in the 18th and 33rd minutes to put the Germans in the driving seat. “Serge’s individual performance settled our nerves.
His finish and his run, just outstanding. His development in the past few years has been amazing and you can see that he is very close to a world-class player,” Flick said of the Germany international who has scored nine goals in nine Champions League games this season. Paris Saint-Germain, it would be noted romped into Sunday’s final with an emphatic 2-0 victory over RB Leipzig on Tuesday. Analysts believe that the world is in to see a mouth watering final on Sunday,given how solid PSG are and the current form of Bayern who are unbeaten in 2020 in all competitions.
