EX PSG player, Kingsley Coman wins sixth Champions League trophy for Bayern Munich
London, August 23, 2020 (AltAfrica)-Kingsley Coman’s header earned Bayern Munich a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon to a secure a sixth Champions League victory for the German side.
The Paris-born Coman, a former PSG player, nodded in at the back post from Joshua Kimmich’s cross in the 59th minute.
The Champions League final had been tight and tense, with a few chances for either team but, until this point, no clinical edge.
It was a first ever appearance for PSG in this showpiece and they might have driven a different ending. They shaded the first-half, when they created good openings, and they were still fighting in stoppage-time at the end, when Neymar almost forced an equaliser. His tears at full-time spoke of heartbreak.
Bayern’s victory ensures a repeat of their 2013 treble with coach Hansi Flick matching Jupp Heynckes in securing the continental crown, Bundesliga and German Cup titles in the coronavirus extended 2019/20 season.
PSG enjoyed their best-ever Champions League campaign by reaching a first final but again fell short of lifting the trophy despite massive financial backing from their Qatari owners.
