Bayern Munich crowned European champions – Football Weekly


We look back at the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, a game which promised goals galore, but ultimately it was just the one that secured Hansi Flick’s Bayern another treble. All the talking points are in there, including stunning performances by Manuel Neuer and Joshua Kimmich, Tuchel’s poor substitutions, Mbappé’s miss and Neymar’s tears at the final whistle.

Of course, we make sure we delve into the more serious side of the game, like whether the Champions League trophy is the most aesthetically pleasing, if Niklas Süle would do well in a Tony Pulis team and is Alphonso Davies a poor man’s John Beresford?

Finally, we look at the Europa League final, as Sevilla beat Inter in a very entertaining match, but should they have been reduced to 10 men? And of course, we ask the question on everybody’s lips, is Jonathan Wilson happy about Inverting The Pyramid being in a new TV sitcom?

Back, this week, on Wednesday. See you then.
