Bayern Invictus

This Sunday 23rd, Bayern Munich faced Paris Saint-German in the final of the top European football competition. Flick´s team was more decisive and was ultimately crown the 2019-20 European champions.

The Bavarian team beat PSG 1-0 at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, in a tournament marked by a new format. This was implemented in the final phase in response to the ongoing Corona virus pandemic.

It is the sixth Champions League trophy and the ninth European trophy in the history of Bayern. Unbeaten throughout this year´s tournament, the German club even managed to score as high as 7-1 against Chelsea and 8-2 against no less than Barcelona.

And that´s not all; Bayern also won its national league and cup this season, holding now the record of Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal trophies.

Game Summary

The match was generally even, with both teams creating several clear-cut chances. But only the Germans were able to score the decisive goal.

The first goal opportunity came with Neymar in the first 18 minutes of the match. The Brazilian went head to head with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. But the German goalkeeper repelled his shot on two occasions.

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski was then able to open the scoring for the Germans after a half-volley in the area on minute 22´. But his shot crashed into the goal post.

As the first half wore on, Kylian Mbappe received a back pass from Ander Herrera taking advantage of an error in Bayern’s exit. The Frenchman fired a soft shot that went straight into the hands of Neuer on minute 44´.

In the second half, Hansi Flick’s team took the lead through Kingsley Coman, who headed a cross into Joshua Kimmich’s area in the 59th minute to beat Costa Rica’s Navas.

Coman himself was able to increase the gap in favour of the Bavarians with a cross-shot. But Thiago Alcantara save it almost from the line in the 63rd minute.

Neuer, one of Germany’s top players, saved the score again in the 70th minute after holding Marquinhos’ shot three metres from goal.

In the second half, newcomer Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting missed the last chance for the Frenchmen to draw level, failing to connect with a powerful cross from Neymar in front of the goal.

In the end, the victory went to Bayern Munich, who won the tournament without losing a single match and went on to claim a hat-trick of the season, as they also won the Bundesliga and the German Cup.
