Europa League final: Sevilla – Inter Milan (Friday, 9 p.m.)

It’s no big surprise that Sevilla finds itself in the Europa League final again. The Spanish outfit has earned the title of Europa League specialist, as this will be its 6th final since 2006. Of those, it won all 5, which makes it the record holder. This season, Sevilla finished number one in its group phase and hasn’t lost since. Hitting high form at just the right time, it can use its experience to overcome any team in its path.

With Inter Milan, there’s of course not just any team in Sevilla’s path. Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku was instrumental in the blue-black Italians rampage through the Europa League this season: he’s now scored in every game leading up to the final. Add a solid defence that only conceded one goal in the last seven games, and you know that Inter Milan’s chances at a big European prize have never been better.

Champions League final: Paris Saint-Germain – Bayern Munich (Sunday, 9 p.m.)

Paris Saint-Germain has never made it this far into the world’s most important club football competition. With a star-studded cast that includes Neymar and Mbappé, the Parisians have already shattered their record of last year, when they failed to overcome the round of 16. Though it’s had its struggles before the competition came to a grinding halt, PSG has returned to the stage inf full form.

If there’s anything that the football world will remember from Bayern Munich’s 2020 run in the Champions League, it’s the German Rekordmeister’s absolute domination of helpless Barcelona (2-8). A 6th Champions League title will further underline this dominance. Bayern won all 10 of its last 10 games and made 42 goals in the process. Polish striker Lewandowski, especially, will be one to watch here!
