Live UEFA Champions League Final, 7.00pm, Virgin Media One

Paris Saint-Germain v Bayern Munich (Kick-off 8.00pm) meet at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon in what’s been labelled by some as the Qatar Cup Final, given the Gulf state owns PSG and state-owned Qatar Airways is a main sponsor at Bayern.

Having spent heavily over the past nine years, PSG finally reached this match for the first time in their history with a 3-0 victory over Leipzig, who are yet another club that’s been taken over by drinks company Red Bull.

But despite the talent at their disposal, PSG go into the final as underdogs, as Bayern have won all 10 of their games so far in this season's competition, with the highlight being an 8-2 trouncing of Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
