Sunday’s UEFA Champions League Final in Lisbon was a unique one. No crowd and two teams with totally different ambitions. On one hand, you had PSG, looking for their first ever European title. Bayern Munich, meanwhile, were looking for their sixth. Though many of the names had changed since their last victory, they showed a nous in the way they grinded out a 0-1 win in the showpiece.
They controlled play without being brilliant, capitalizing on PSG’s wastefulness in two ways. In one way, the missed chances cost PSG. The other was that former man Kingsley Coman was the man to score the goal that beat them, heading home after 59 minutes. That’s all they needed, and it completed a terrific season that saw them win all 11 European fixtures they played. Downright dominant and deserved.
