Hansi Flick, Bayern München coach:
"We knew it would be difficult, they came in off the back of great performances against City and Juventus. They are strong tactically and they caused us problems early on. We know we need to defend better, we said before we couldn't afford to give away the ball easily, but we did."

"It was a very, very intense game, not just for the players, but for everyone who was there. We were a bit lucky to survive the beginning of the game. Serge Gnabry's individual effort gave us the lead. He did an excellent job. I'm firmly convinced that he's still far from reaching his peak."

"Paris are a great team, they fought their way into the semi-final and then reached the final. We will analyse some things, we know they have quick players. We will look to organise our defence, but we know our biggest strength is putting our opponents under pressure."

"We're all very happy. We need to regain our strength and energy now to win the trophy on Sunday."

Alphonso Davies, Bayern München:
"It feels good. Everyone's happy and playing well. For me, it's a dream come true. Playing in the Champions League and making it into the final is everything you can ask for."

"Paris are a good team. For now, we celebrate a little bit but afterwards we focus on the next game. It's going to be a good game, there's going to be goals in it. This is what you dream of as a footballer – playing against the best in Europe. And we're able to do that, I'm excited."

Serge Gnabry, Bayern München:
"The first couple of minutes we struggled a little bit. My goal came at the right time to give us a bit of confidence."

"Obviously, it has been an amazing night for myself and for the team as well. We knew it would be a difficult game. Now, we are in the final, and we are very much looking forward to it. We're on a good run. On Sunday, we will try to put the icing on the cake with another win."

Marcelo, Olympique Lyon:
"We lacked efficiency in front of goal. I'm proud of my team, we faced a great team and played at the same level."

Karl Toko Ekambi, Olympique Lyon:
"We're thinking we could have done better and we could have scored some goals before they did. Luck wasn't on our side. We missed chances and we were up against a great team."
