Bayern 1, PSG 0 – Bayern Munich wins PSG.
According to a sports website, Two of the dominant clubs in the world went head-to-head for Europe’s top prize, but it was Bayern emerging with a 1-0 win over PSG after Kingsley Coman’s 59th-minute goal in Lisbon, Portugal on Sunday.
The title is Bayern’s sixth European cup, and it cements a repeat of the club’s feat in 2013, when it won the treble (domestic league, domestic cup, European cup).
Bayern 1, PSG 0 : Bayern won every match from the group stage through the final, and it survived a valiant challenge from PSG, which was looking for its first European title to validate its abundance of spending since its Qatari ownership took over.
Bayern made one significant change to its starting XI, swapping Coman, an ex-PSG youth product, in for Ivan Perisic on the wing. That was a move that proved to be wise for manager Hansi Flick. PSG, meanwhile, stuck with its semifinal starters save for goalkeeper, where Keylor Navas is back after a one-game injury absence.
PSG was fortunate after giving the ball away in its own half in the second minute. Bayern’s press forced the early turnover, but Leon Goretzka misplaced his pass in trying to turn that opportunity into an early goal.
