It was an end-to-end game with Di Maria fluffing a glorious chance after Ander Herrera switched the flow of play but he leathers his shot high from close range.

Both teams battled hard to get a goal in the first half but they matched each other in all departments and at half-time, it was 0-0.

The second half started brightly for the French side as they continued to press for the goal, however it was Bayern who opened the scoring through a Coman header in the 59th minute.

Kimmich lifted a beauty of a ball up to the far post and Coman was there to guide a header past Keylor Navas to put the Germans ahead.

PSG increased their prowess in search for an equalizer, with Neymar and Mbappe making frantic efforts to equalize.

There were several attempts by both sides late in the second half, but Coman's goal seem to be enough to seal the title for the Germans. It ended; PSG 0-1 Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Lionel Messi could be reuniting with former team-mate Neymar as latest reports have it that French club and Champions League finalists Paris Saint Germain are set to battle for the Argentine’s signature.
