Bayern beats PSG to lift sixth UEFA Champions League

Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 at the Estadio da Luz, in Lisbon, and crowned its impressive trajectory with the sixth UEFA Champions League title.

Former PSG youth academy player Kingsley Coman headed in the lone goal off a clinical Joshua Kimmich far post cross. This season, Bayern have won Bundesliga and the German Cup, apart from the European trophy. They also have a 100 per cent win rate in the 2019-20 CL matches. 

The first 45 minutes ended goalless, despite the fact that it was a clash between two of the heaviest-scoring sides in world football.

Coman, however, headed home from a Joshua Kimmich cross to give Bayern the lead in the 59th minute – a goal that turned out to be the German club’s 500th in the competition.

The Hans-Dieter Flick’s side have now won their sixth Champions League title from 11 finals — and first since 2013 — drawing them on same level with Liverpool at third on the all-time winners’ list.

The win is Bayern’s 21st straight victory in the coronavirus pandemic-interrupted season.

The Bundesliga champions have also completed a second treble in seven years, having already clinched the domestic double.

Prior to Sunday’s clash with PSG, the German powerhouse have demolished Chelsea, Barcelona and Lyon.

Bayern will now face Sevilla, Europa League champions, in the 2020 UEFA Super Cup, which is expected to be played on September 24 at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary.
