No finals have been played between the two.
It's the first grandslam meeting between the two outside of Roland Garros.

It's the third final at the grandslam level for the relentless, powerful 26 year old Austrian, who's been the top contender at big tournaments for a while now and has improved his hard court game incredibly well to make his first ever AO final, in fact just 2nd run past 4th round at non RG slam. Dominic Thiem, as he looks to win his first ever slam after losing 2 consecutive french open finals to rafael nadal in 2018 and 2019.
In contrast, it's the 8th final at the Australian open for the Serbian sensation, the tour veteran 32 years old Novak Djokovic. Who looks to win his 17th grandslam in 26th final at this level.

I think thiem has a better chance than people are giving him credit for...but I’m not naive enough to pick against Nole at the AO

Djoker in 4

If I had to bet I'd say Djokovic in 4 - rooting for Thiem, though.

As a night match on a cool day, conditions will be both glacially slow and low bouncing, which probably favors Djokovic.

Thiem is awesome, and it's a great achievement making his first HC Slam final here. But AO final is Djokovic's territory, he will once again raise himself to a nearly unbeatable level as he always does.

Djokovic in 4, but this is going to be a great, competitive final for sure.

Djokovic is the favorite but Thiem has the brute power of Wawrinka. So if Thiem can hang in there and grabs whatever chances comes his way, watch out for an exciting match.

I voted Novak in 5 but Thiem can certainly do it if he recovers physically. 2 finals at RG v Nadal and now against Djokovic, will he get lucky at the third attempt to push the king out?

Nice that Thiem is in another final. He will need to keep ripping the felt off the ball and keep it in to win. We'll see if being a human metronome is enough for Djoker here, or he has to mess a bit with Thiem's timing. Hard to pick, but I just don't think I see Thiem winning in less than 5 sets, whereas I could see Djoker winning in 3 or 4. Here's to a good final.

The match is on Tim's racquet and his game bears more than a passing resemblance to Stan's. So the Molefam might just have those smirks wiped off their faces come Sunday...

Tim might be young, dumb and fulla rum and it'll probably get messy, but eventually he'll wind up the old DTL-OHBH-and-IO-FH-****-machine-gun and slaminal his way up and over the Nolan Heights.

Djokovic 1/4
Thiem 11/4

Interesting, thought it would be closer given Thiem won their last tour meeting and more importantly their last slam meeting.

People are taking thiem lightly and I think he has everything to stop novak in the final although he has to redline like he has never before since djokovic is unbeatable so far in aus open final but surprises can happen
 
Should be an exciting match for sure. I admit Thiem is the best from this side of draw to face Novak. He has a great game. Djoko though is so strong in Melbourne and is so mentally tough.

Djoko knows he needs this slam to make the race even more exciting and close in on Fed and Rafa. Exciting to see a different final old guard vs new guard. May the best man win!

There is one thing I know for sure-Federer fans are not going to bash Djokovic for beating an old Federer and Thiem who had a much tougher draw and less rest. But when Nadal beat them in RG 2019 it was the weakest draw in history.
Oh, I'm sorry, I thought Thiem played four days in a row at the end of RG last year, while Nadal played his matches on schedule and benefited with his side going first and missing the rained out day. And Thiem had Djokovic in an epic five sets, and don't you always say just how incredible Djokovic is?
