Former PSG player, Kingsley Coman made the difference in the 59th minute through a header thanks to a Joshua Kimmich assist. Coman’s strike secured a treble for the Germans and punished PSG’s wastefulness in the first half as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both failed to beat Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer from close range.
Mbappe, PSG’s talented French World Cup-winning striker, should have done better just before the break when, after a smart one-two with Herrera, he shot straight at Neuer. It was a scrappy start to the second half with both sides struggling to find any composure but the game came alive just before the hour mark.

Bayern Munich’s strength and mentality: They deserved the trophy after proving a tough side to beat and one with a better attack to end the league without any loss or draw. The success was also due to their coach who brought in a different mentality following the sacking of Niko Kovac back in November 2019.
The PSG dream was over, the debutant finalists defeated by the determination, organization and remarkable consistency of the formidable and now six-times European champions.
