PSG star Marco Verratti's model girlfriend has sent his team a cute message ahead of the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich.

Following the coronavirus pandemic, the teams remaining in the tournament all travelled to Lisbon for a series of straight knockout ties differing from the normal two-legged version of the tournament.

PSG dramatically overturned a one-goal deficit to squeeze their way past Atalanta in their first knockout game, before securing their place in the final with a classy 3-0 win over RB Leipzig.

Italy international Verratti, 27, sustained a calf injury during a training session at the beginning of the month but has travelled to Lisbon for the Champions League 2020 final eight tournament and could take part in the final.

And now Verratti's girlfriend, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Jessica Aidi, has sent the team a message of good luck.

The pair were rumoured to be an item when they were seen holding hands at the Monaco Grand Prix in May, 2019, but didn't go public with their romance until last year's Paris Fashion Week.

They posed for photos side-by-side at a fashion show, and have been inseparable ever since.

It has been claimed they met before Aidi became a model and worked as a waitress.

Aidi, who has a 193,000 followers on Instagram, posted a loved-up picture of them together in May with the caption: "Love of my life."

And now she has dedicated a post to her footballer boyfriend, and also shared a story showing the team's shirt ahead of the big game.

In a post on Instagram, the model wrote: "From Paris to Lisbonne Today is THE day Sending my Love and support to you @marco_verratti92 and your incredible team @psg #AlwaysbyYourSide."

Aidi's not the only PSG WAG getting involved with the final.

Neymar's stunning girlfriend Natalia Barulich gave her Instagram followers something to smile about with a cute snap on a private jet ahead of Sunday night’s game.

Brazilian superstar Neymar admits he is on a mission to make history by firing Paris Saint Germain to European glory in Lisbon.
