The match took place at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal. Paris Saint-Germain academy product Kingsley Coman lone goal was all the Bavarians needed to be crowned champions.

Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappé Lottin missed some glorious chances that would have put their team ahead in the game, all thanks to the German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who made some fantastic saves to deny Paris Saint-Germain a goal in the match.

Jerome Boateng was forced off in the 25th minute due to injury and was replaced by Niklas Suele.

This substitution made life tougher for Bayern but with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Manuel Neuer still on the pitch, Bayern still had hope.

The crucial goal came in the 59th minute of the second-half when Thomas Muller laid Serge Gnabry’s cross to Joshua Kimmich just outside the area and his inviting delivery to the back post was headed home by Coman.

PSG almost equalized but Neuer was equal to the task, he saved Marquinhos’ effort from getting into the back of the net.

PSG failed to score in a game in a major UEFA European competition for the first time in 35 matches, last failing to do so in a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in April 2016.

Bayern are the first team in the European Cup or Champions League history to win every game en route to winning the competition (11 wins).
