Bayern Munich Wins Champions League

In a tightly contested Champions League final in Lisbon Bayern Munich overcame Paris St-Germain to claim the crown for the sixth time.

Kingsley Coman, who started his career at PSG, resolved a tense affair with a 59th-minute header at the distant post from Joshua Kimmich 's cross to leave the French giants still looking for the elusive Champions League victory.

It was a night of joy for Bayern boss Hansi Flick, who reached the Bundesliga with the Champions League after initially taking over from sacked Niko Kovac in November as interim coach.

By comparison, it was a night of bitter frustration for the two attacking superstars of PSG, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, who struggled to deliver their best and were thwarted by Manuel Neuer, Bayern's keeper and man of the match, when they had the best of the first-half opportunities.

Mbappe's discomfort intensified in the second half when he appeared to be tripped in the area by Kimmich, but PSG's penalty demands were dismissed – allowing Bayern to rejoice once again as Europe's crowned champions, becoming the first team to retain the trophy by winning each Champions League game in a single campaign.
