Records fall like a deck of cards as Bayern’s juggernaut ends with an UCL trophy

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.

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.

Individual Honours

Records fall like a deck of cards as Bayern's juggernaut ends with an UCL trophy - THE SPORTS ROOM
Lewa’s record-breaking spree

  • 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.

 

The Germans also became the first team since Man City in 2016 to keep a clean sheet against PSG in UCL.

Bayern’s masterclass

The entire campaign would surely be cherished for long times by the Bundesliga Champions with many claiming this side to be better than even 2013’s treble-winning squad. Not only did they win the trophy but they did it in a manner that would soon become a stuff of legends.
