A Kingsley Coman goal on the 59th minute made sure that Bayern Munich clinch their sixth Champions League title with a 1-0 victory over French side Paris Saint Germain(PSG) last night at the Estadio da Luz in Portugal.
As most football pundits and fans expected, the game lived up to its billing with its intensity.
It was the Paris based club who got the first clear-cut chance with talisman Neymar denied twice by Bayern’s shotstopper Manuel Neuer on the 18th minute.
Lewandoski almost gave Bayern Munich the lead as he struck the upright minutes after Neymar’s chance.
The Bundesliga giants were forced to make an early altercation as injured defender, Jerome Boateng was replaced by Nicklas Sule after 23 minutes of play.
Paris Saint Germain had another fine opportunity of breaking the deadlock on the 45th minute but Kylian Mbappe failed to convert the ball into the back of the net.
The important moment of the game came in the second half as Kingsley Coman’s header pass Keylor Navas to give the Bavarians an assurance of winning their third piece of silverware this season.
Thomas Tuchel’s men almost made the score even 20 minutes to the end of the game as Marquinhos’ effort was not enough to beat Neuer.
In stoppage time, the Ligue 1 Champions could have turned the score as substitute Choupo-Moting miscued in front of goal.
Hansi Flick praised his players for a good job done.
The German tactician added that Lewandoski is the leading candidate for the player of the year award.
Flick became the gaffer of Bayern Munich when the team parted ways with Niko Kovac in November last year.
