THE TRIUMPH OF BAYERN MÜNCHEN, WINNER OF THE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
FACTS AND STATS
The perfect season
Manuel Neuer , IFFHS World's Best Goalkeeper during 4 years, was fantastic.
Bayern have become the first team in the history of the most important club competition in Europe to win every game of the campaign on the way to the title. With their eleventh consecutive win coming over PSG in the final (1-0), Hansi Flick’s team have now also set the record for the longest consecutive winning run in the history of the Champions League.
The second team to win a second treble after Barcelona
FC Bayern (2013 and 2020) is now the only club aside from Barcelona (2009 and 2015) to have won the league, national cup and Champions League treble twice in a single season. With their sixth title in the European Cup/Champions League, the Munich-based club has also drawn level on terms with Liverpool FC - ahead of them now are only Real Madrid (with 13 titles) and AC Milan (seven).
Goal number 500 for the title
Kingsley Coman’s winning goal (Picture) against Paris in the final was FC Bayern's 500th goal since the Champions League was established - and what better way to celebrate such an anniversary than with the winner to secure the famous long-eared trophy.
The German record champions finished the season in the UCL with 43 goals - 18 more than any other team in the competition. The runners-up in the standings, final opponents Paris Saint-Germain, scored 25 goals. The average of 3.9 goals per game scored by Bayern has never been matched by any other team in the history of the Champions League.
