PSG’s long wait for European glory can be finally over on Sunday as they take on Bayern Munich in the final of Champions League.

In the battle of the best, French and German champions lock horns for European supremacy. It will be a historical event as a rampant Bayern Munich battle it out with Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon. 

Star attraction will be great as Neymar, Mbappe, Lewandowski and Muller line-up against each other. The technical ability of both sides matches them. 

Marco Verratti believes it will be a tough fixture befitting the culmination ‘an incredible journey’. Such is the importance of the fixture that he called it the most important match of their careers. 

“The Champions League is always difficult. So far, we’ve had an incredible journey,” Goal quoted the Italy international.

“We have 90 minutes left, these are the most important 90 minutes of our lives as a footballer and of the history of the club. You have to be prepared.

Verratti has been on the sidelines as Les Parisians made their way to the Lisbon extravaganza. The Pescara native does not want to miss the fixture and is looking to prove his fitness prior to the crunch encounter. 

“I’m better, I started again slowly with the team. This injury was a bit hard to digest,” he added.

“I have resumed with the group for 2-3 days and I will do everything to play the match. I was available in the semi-final. It is the coach who will make his decision.”
