Bayern Munich are the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League winners after edging Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final in Lisbon on Sunday.
They are now the second European club to secure a second treble after Barcelona achieved it in 2015. Bayern first landed the treble in 2013.
Former PSG player Kingsley Coman was the hero for Bayern as his 59th minute header off Joshua Kimmich cross sealed a sixth title for the Germans.
Bayern Munich are the first team in Champions League history to win every game en route to winning the competition!

Played behind closed doors at the Estádio da Luz, this wasn’t the classic final many had hoped for after both sides scored so freely throughout the tournament.
Neymar was denied the opener by a superb save from Manuel Neuer before Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski hit the post and had a header saved by Keylor Navas during an otherwise cagey first half.
Bayern’s high defensive line, in many ways its greatest strength, also gave encouragement to the lightning fast PSG attackers led by Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe and Neymar spent the night on the shoulders of Bayern’s defenders, waiting for the trigger to run in behind, but failed to convert when given the chance.
The second half hardly improved in terms of quality with Coman providing the game’s only piece of decisive attacking play.
And in the final seconds PSG went close again but saw their last effort go begging.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
