Kingsley Coman nets as Bayern beat PSG in Champions League final

Bayern Munich completed a perfect run through this longest of Champions League campaigns as they beat Paris St Germain 1-0 to lift the European Cup for a sixth time.

Paris-born Kingsley Coman scored the only goal just before the hour as Bayern made it 11 wins out of 11 in the competition this season, lifting the trophy in an empty Estadio da Luz in Lisbon some 85 days after the final had originally been scheduled in Istanbul.

This was a 21st straight win in all competitions, while a remarkable run through the Champions League, highlighted by their 8-2 rout of Barcelona in the quarter-finals, saw them outscore their opponents 43 to eight.

It was frustration for PSG, who have targeted this competition above all others since the flood of investment that has come under Qatari ownership.

They could point to a strong penalty claim in the second half, but were guilty of squandering a number of chances as Bayern took advantage.

The Bundesliga champions’ high defensive line was expected to get a stiff examination from Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, and it duly did in the first half.
