Bayern Munich won their sixth UEFA champions league title on Sunday the 23rd of August 2020 after they defeated Paris St German 1-0 at the Estádio da Luz stadium in Lisbon, Portugal. The club also won their second continental treble since the 2012-2013 season winning the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and UEFA Champions League.
For the first time ever the match was played behind closed doors because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Paris St German were hoping to win their first-ever UEFA champions league title on Sunday in their first final appearance, but no doubt it won’t be their last appearance.
In a close evenly matched contest Bayern Munich scored the only goal of the game through former Paris St German and French international Kingsley Coman.
Hans-Dieter Flick had decided to change his starting side after three games to place his trust in winger Kinglsey Coman instead of Ivan Perisic who had impressed throughout the competition, and Coman was the difference in a close game.

Bayern also had their captain Manuel Neuer to thank with a world-class performance on the night as he pulled off important saves from Neymar and Mbappe in the first half which would have given PSG the lead, and in the last 20 minutes of the game again saving Bayern when Marquinhos looked certain to equalise from close range.
Bayern Munich manager Hans-Dieter Flick never lifted the Champions League trophy before having only appeared in the final once in 1986-1987 as a player losing to Porto 2-1.
Bayern Munich is now the fourth most successful club in the competition’s history level with last year’s winners Liverpool 6, and behind AC Milan 7, and Real Madrid 13.
Players spoke about their delight on Twitter after the win.
