LISBON, Portugal – Kingsley Coman steered Bayern Munich to a sixth Champions League title on Sunday, scoring against childhood club Paris Saint-Germain to seal a 1-0 victory in the first fan-less final .

While Bayern won their first final since 2013, PSG have yet to lift the European Cup despite more than $ 1 billion spent on players in nine years.

It was a historic day for Bayern star left-back Alphonso Davies. The 19-year-old from Edmonton became the first Canadian male player to win a Champions League title.

Over $ 500million was spent on Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria but PSG seemed far from formidable or threatening against the Bavarian giants who felt more secure on the biggest stage of European club football.

While the expensive three forwards were frustrated in front of goal, it was rather a winger who grew up in Paris and started his career at PSG who inflicted the blow.

Coman, 24, found himself at the far post with no control from the PSG defense and was set to meet a Joshua Kimmich cross in the 59th minute.

The PSG singing contingent around the directors’ platform has been silenced in a largely empty stadium due to coronavirus restrictions.

He has completed an incredible transformation this season under Hansi Flick, who took the helm in November with Bayern fourth in the Bundesliga.

The season is now over – three months later than expected due to the coronavirus pandemic break in play – with Bayern’s triple winners.

The European Cup joins the Bundesliga trophy – won for an eighth consecutive season and the German Cup.

Bayern join ousted champions Liverpool as six-time European champions, only behind AC Milan (seven) and Real Madrid (13).
