Invincible Bayern Munich Conquer Europe!

The Champions League Finals between Bayern Munich, seeking a sixth champions league tittle and Paris Saint-Germain, looking for their first ever,  was a true definition of ’the game of champions’ as both sides already boasted of a collective five trophies between them so far in the season, a domestic treble for the French Champions and a domestic double for the German Champion.

Heading into the game, Bayern Munich were tipped by many as favourites to enjoy can easy win  following their excellent run in form in the Champions leading to the finals, but that was not to be the case as the determined French side who were playing in the champions league finals for the first time in the club’s 50 years of existence rose to the occasion and gave the German team a very good run for their money in the fiercely contested game. 

The both sides squared up against each other almost evenly and though Bayern enjoyed more possession, the game remained goalless all through the first half and stayed that way after the break, till an unmarked former PSG player, Kingsley Coman, headed in Joshua Kimmich’s gorgeous cross past Keylor Navas in the 59th minute to give Bayern the lead and some relieve. 

Paris Saint-Germain tried to get back into the game, but the Germans remained dogged and held on firmly to ensure that 1-0 scoreline, albeit narrow was just enough to hand them 

their sixth champions league and treble winner for the second time in the club’s 120-year history. 

With the much deserved triumph, the  Bundesliga giants became the first side to win the trophy, after winning every single game in the campaign, trashing all their opponents on their way to the finals, including an unprecedented and unforgettable 8-2 victory over Barcelona.

The joy of the Bundesliga champions knew absolutely no bounds as the possibility of dominating Europe so thoroughly scarcely seemed feasible for a team that was 4th in the Bundesliga and had just lost 5-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt before  Hansi Flick took over the managerial reins in November, nine months later and all of Europe is at their feet, as far as football is concerned. 

PSG on the other hand were left devastated and Brazilian star Neymar was particularly unconsolable as PSG’s much needed champions league remained from their reach.
