Bayern beat PSG, wins sixth Champions League title


Bayern Munich have won this year’s Champions League final, following a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain as they captured their sixth European Cup in club history making them the reigning champions after Liverpool won the title last season.

The Bundesliga champions came into the game as huge favourites to win the game, but failed to dominate PSG in the first half.

However, Neymar and Mbappe failed to make their dominance count, wasting several opportunities to take the lead.

Bayern, however, scored early in the second half, with Kingsley Coman heading in Joshua Kimmich’s fantastic cross.

The goal threw the game wide open, but there were no more goals, as PSG continued to be thwarted by goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

France international Kingsley Coman scored just before the hour mark to complete Bayern’s remarkable sweep in the Champions League. The German side claimed Europe’s top club trophy by winning every game in the tournament this season, becoming the first unbeaten champion since Manchester United in 2007-08.

Bayern is the second team to win all of their UCL matches en route to the final. The Bundesliga club also won their league and cup in domestic competition.

PSG, who beat RB Leipzig 3-0 in the semifinals, was playing in their first Champions League final. PSG stars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar had prime scoring chances throughout the match but failed to capitalize.

They will face Sevilla in the Super Cup, after their Europa League win over Inter Milan on Friday.
