Bayern Munich Are Now The Fifth Most Successful Team In Europe
By Mike Parrott
Bayern Munich have moved up to fifth in the rankings of the most successful clubs in European competitions after winning their sixth UEFA Champions League against PSG last night.
The Bavarians beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 after a goal from Paris native Kingsley Coman.
Bayern become only the second team ever to complete two separate treble seasons, matching Barcelona who did it in 2009 and 2015.
