Bayern Munich have won the Champions League for a sixth time after a narrow 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday in Lisbon.

Wideman Kingsley Coman, who began his career at PSG, netted the decisive goal in the 59th minute with a header after an inch-perfect cross from Joshua Kimmich.

The goal denied PSG their elusive first Champions League crown and handed Bayern their first European title since 2013 and the second treble in their history.

The night capped off a remarkable season for Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick, who only replaced former manager Niko Kovac in November with the German giants sitting fourth in the Bundesliga.

His appointment sparked a revival at the Allianz Arena, culminating in a surge of 21 consecutive victories to finish the season to secure the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League titles.

Hansi Flick said: “Our development has been sensational, we’ve done everything superbly and even made the most of the coronavirus break as best we could.

“This team just has the desire, we’ve got players with an unbending will to win.

“This success belongs to everyone, to all the employees and everyone who helps.”

Goalscorer Kingsley Coman said: “I’m very happy, it’s an unbelievable night – not just for the club, but for all the fans.

“Obviously I wanted to have a good game, not because of PSG, but because I’m 100 per cent Bayern and I was determined to win.

“This is an extraordinary feeling.”
