What they’re saying

Kylian Mbappe: “This is exactly why I came here. I always said that I wanted to go down in my country’s history. (This) is another chance to do that.”

Benjamin Pavard: “Nobody scares us, we are Bayern Munich. We have had a great season and now we need to finish it off by winning the Champions League.”

Hansi Flick: “We’ve always played with a high line and ultimately we’ve got results doing that so we won’t change too much.”

Thomas Tuchel: “It is a small advantage for Bayern that they are used as a club to playing these games. I accept that, but it is not a decisive advantage.”
