With this and that we reach the end of the European season, which lasted longer than any other for reasons that have been known for months and do not need to be mentioned again. The Champions League final brings together for the first time in 44 years a French and a German team, with Paris Saint-Germain facing Bayern Munich on Sunday night at the "Da Luz" in Lisbon.
Then, in 1976, the Bavarians had beaten St. Etienne 1-0 in Glasgow. Now they want to do it again, climbing to the top of Europe for the first time in seven years.
The Parisians, on the other hand, have in front of them a first class opportunity to realize the dream of the fans, the players and their owners. When the Qatari billionaires decided to invest a fortune in Paris, they had in mind discrimination not only in France but also abroad.
Hansie Flick's terrible Bayern rightly has the title of favorite, however strange it may sound, it does not have the lion's share in all its matches against Paris. In eight matches, the Germans have only three wins and five defeats, while there has not been a single draw.
It is clear that both opponents want like crazy the cup with the big ears for their own reasons. Whoever succeeds will lift the heavyweight trophy in front of empty stands, just like Seville on Friday.
