BREAKING: Coman sinks PSG as Bayern emerge kings of Europe

first_img The Brazilian broke free down the left-hand side and fired a low shot that brought a fine save from Manuel Neuer with the inside of his outstretched leg. The ball rebounded back to Neymar, but his cut-back from an acute angle was once again repelled by the German stopper. That close call appeared to spring Bayern Munich  into action, with Robert Lewandowski coming within the width of the woodwork of opening the scoring. A second-half winner from Kingsley Coman proved the difference as Bayern Munich were crowned winners of the 2020 Champions League at PSG’s expense on Sunday night. Following a tentative opening gambit from both sides, the first real chance fell to PSG and Neymar. The Polish marksman received the ball near the penalty spot and shifted his weight superbly to turn and strike in one motion, but his effort cannoned back off the post to ensure the deadlock remained. Angel Di Maria then wasted a great opportunity moments later after his weak-footed drive rose high over the bar from inside the area. Lewandowski once again came close after the half hour mark, but his quick reactions to nod a headed effort on goal picked out PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas perfectly. Kylian Mbappe wasted a great chance after neat interplay between the Frenchman and Ander Herrera created a golden opportunity. But the superstar striker’s resulting effort was too central and was comfortably dealt with by Neuer.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 As half-time neared Kingsley Coman took a tumble under slight pressure inside the PSG area, but his penalty appeals were waved away as both sides went into the break locked at 0-0. The second-half began with more off-the-ball action than on it after Serge Gnabry’s retaliatory tackle on Neymar resulted in a yellow card and a loud yelp from the Brazilian. But just as he hour mark approached, the game kicked into high gear with the opening goal of the final. PSG repelled a Bayern attack, though the ball fell kindly to Joshua Kimmich. The German ace picked out an unmarked Kingsley Coman at the far post who guided his header past Navas and inside the far post to make it 1-0. The Parisians did not wilt, however, and launched attacks that created good chances for Di Maria and especially Marquinhos. Neymar curled a shot high and wide before the bookings came out in force as the tension in the players began to show. Loading… last_img read more
