How Twitter reacted to Bayern Munich beating PSG to win the Champions League

Bayern Munich are the new champions of Europe after defeating maiden finalists Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final on Sunday, the German giants lifting the famous trophy for the sixth time following their 1-0 victory in Lisbon.

As always, social media and Twitter were on hand to react to the biggest game in club football and we’ve decided to delve into some of the best tweets following Bayern’s coronation as European champions.

Flawless Bayern make history with perfect run to glory.

The rise of Alphonso Davies has been one of the feel-good stories of the Champions League season, a tale which is as remarkable as it is inspiring.

The teenager spent the first five years of his life in a refugee camp in Ghana before moving to Canada as a youngster, since enjoying a meteoric rise to become one of the world’s finest full-backs and the first ever Canadian winner of the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain were left frustrated following a tightly contested showpiece in the Portuguese capital, the Parisian’s formidable forward line thwarted by an outstanding performance from German goalkeeping great Manuel Neuer.

An evenly contested clash was eventually decided by a goal from former PSG player and France international Kingsley Coman, the winger’s links to the French capital – alongside perfect pun potential – not lost on the footballing public.

Bayern’s post-match celebrations also attracted the attention of social media, with Robert Lewandowski – the Champions League’s leading scorer this season – welcoming a guest into his bed for the night.

Meanwhile, just when you think you’ve seen it all with trophy celebrations, Bayern’s Lucas Hernandez does this…

Once the celebrations subside the trophy will be heading to Munich once more, though only once ‘Old Big Ears’ has cleared customs, of course.
