UEFA Champions League Final 2020, PSG vs Bayern Munich Highlights: Bayern Munich were crowned the champions of Europe for a sixth time in history when they defeated first-time finalists Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League final at the Estadio da Luz, Lisbon on Sunday.

Hansi Flick’s Bayern Munich made it 11 out of 11 in the competitions this season, becoming the first team ever to do so, as a 59th minute Kingsley Coman header proved to be the difference in a high-octane, albeit low scoring, final.

Robert Lewandowski was denied twice in the first half — one from a close-range header and another a right-footed strike to the post. PSG threatened too through Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as both the forwards were denied by the gigantic Manuel Neuer. In the second half, Bayern completely dominated the possession and they reaped rewards soon when an accurate Joshua Kimmich cross was put in the back of the net by the former PSG forward, Coman. PSG tried to get an equaliser, but Bayern didn’t slip up even once till the very end.
