Also speaking, the scorer of the lone goal and winner, Kingsley Coman described the night as unbelievable for the club and fans.

“I’m very happy, it’s an unbelievable night – not just for the club, but for all the fans. Obviously I wanted to have a good game, not because of PSG, but because I’m 100 percent Bayern and I was determined to win. I feel sorry for Paris because I come from the city. This is an extraordinary feeling. I feel a lot of joy, but also sadness for PSG.”

The captain Manuel Neuer said the Bavarians deserved to be the winer.

“We worked hard for this and deserve it. It’s a dream for everyone. It’s difficult to come to terms with this feeling of joy at full time. We weren’t so relaxed in our build-up play, perhaps we lacked a little confidence.

“It was a team performance from everyone. I’ve never had so much fun playing with a team.”

PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel revealed that he had the feeling beforehand that the first goal might decide the match and it turned out to be so.

“We needed this boost to feel freer. Unfortunately, you could see Kylian [Mbappe] lacks a bit of rhythm in his game. He’s come back from injury. We showed a big fight but they scored and it was decisive. We showed the attitude necessary to win. We weren’t lucky enough.”
