Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies predicts Sunday’s Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain will be a goal-scoring frenzy.
The pundit discussion following Bayern’s 3-0 win over Lyon has centered on whether PSG’s star-studded attack from Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Angel Di Maria would benefit from the Bayern defense’s high line.
But in Robert Lewandowski, who completed the score against Lyon, Bayern has a striker who has scored 55 goals this season.

“PSG is a good team,” Bayern left-back Davies said of BT. ‘It will be a good game. There will be goals in that game.
‘This is what you dream of as a football player, playing with the best and against the best in Europe.
“Even though they (his older teammates) have already won a lot of titles, they are still hungry to win them.”
Rio Ferdinand warned BT that Bayern’s tactics could cost them in the final if they don’t make any changes.

“They allow themselves to be wide open at the back,” said Ferdinand. ‘We hammered Pep (Guardiola) for changing his tactics against Lyon. Now we ask (Hans-Dieter) Flick to change things.
“If Mbappé, Neymar and Di Maria get the chances that Lyon got, Bayern will be 3-0 down before they can say boo!”
Lyon had several opportunities to take the lead against the German champions in the opening change of the game.

Karl Toko Ekambi hit the visitors’ post seconds before Serge Gnabry scored the opening goal of the game, while Lyon captain Memphis Depay hit the side net when he broke one-on-one.
Ekambi told RMC Sport, ‘We think we could have done better and we could have scored some goals before they did.
‘Luck was not on our side. We missed opportunities and we played against a great team. We found out that they were unbeatable.
Lyon should probably have scored early in the semi-final when Karl Toko Ekambi hit the post
‘We started very well and we should have scored. My shot hitting the post could have gone in.
‘If you do things as a team, anything is possible. We showed it during this campaign. ‘
Defender Marcelo echoed his teammate, admitting that Lyon was not clinical enough.
“We missed the efficiency for the goal,” he told POLSAT. “I am proud of my team, we stood in front of a great team and played at the same level.”
