Bayern Munich got their sixth Champions League trophy courtesy of a brilliant Kingsley Coman header as PSG were left to rue an opportunity lost.
The final saw a solitary goal by Bayern and a plethora of missed chances from both sides. However, that solitary goal was more than enough to help Bayern Munich complete perhaps the most dominant Champions League campaign of all time.
Here’s a look at some of the records that trembled in the wake of this juggernaut
11 wins to seal off the campaign:
The Munich club became the first team in the history of UCL to have a 100% win record courtesy of their 11 consecutive wins.
Bayern Munich are the first team in European Cup history to win every game en route to winning the competition.

Most successive wins
10 Bayern (2013)
10 Real Madrid(2014-15)
9 Barcelona (2014–15)
9 Barcelona (2002/03)
8 Dortmund (1996–97)
A second treble in 7 years
This is Bayern Munich’s second treble in seven years, having achieved the same feat in 2013. Hansi flick has surely written his name in record books after he became only the sixth manager to complete the European treble joining the likes of Alex Ferguson, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Luis Enrique, and Bayern’s own Jupp Heynckes.
Bundesliga Winners also became just the third side after Barcelona and FC Porto to have two European trebles to their name.
1. Celtic (1966/67)
2. Ajax (1971/72)
3. IFK Göteberg (1981/82)
4. PSV Eindhoven (1987/88)
5. Manchester United (1998/99)
6. Galatasaray (1999/00)
7. FC Porto (2002/03, 2010/11)
8. CSKA Moscow (2004/05)
9. Barcelona (2008/09, 2014/15)
10. Inter Milan (2009/10)
11. Bayern Munich (2012/13,2019-20)
2013 and 2020.

The Goal Machines-
|Team||Season||Goals scored||Matches played||Goals per game|
The German Champions were a goal-scoring machine throughout the campaign with the likes of Lewandoski and Gnabry on fire throughout the campaign and they became the second-highest scorers in a single UCL season, in spite of having played far fewer matches.
Best goals per game ratio in a single season
3.9 Bayern, 2019/20
3.38 Paris, 2017/18
3.15 Real Madrid, 2013/14
3.15 Liverpool, 2017/18
2.92 Barcelona, 2011/12
2.92 Real Madrid, 2011/12
- Robert Lewandoski has become only the second player to score 15 or more Champions League goals in a single campaign after Cristiano Ronaldo (17 in 2013/14, 16 in 2015/16 and 15 in 2017/18).
- The former has now scored in nine consecutive UCL games. Only Ruud van Nistelrooy (9) and Cristiano Ronaldo (11) have scored in as many successive matches in the competition’s history.
- The combined goals (24) scored by Lewandowski (15) and Gnabry (9) are the most by a pair of team-mates in a single UEFA Champions League season, surpassing the tally by Cristiano Ronaldo (17) and Gareth Bale (6) in 2013/14 for Real Madrid.
- Manuel Neuer joined the likes of Iker Casillas and Peter Schmeichel as goalkeeper captains to lay hands on the UCL trophy.
Only three goalkeepers have lifted the #UCL trophy as a captain:
🇩🇰 Peter Schmeichel (1999)
🇪🇸 Iker Casillas (2014)
🇩🇪 Manuel Neuer (2020)
