‘Bayern Was Not That Superior to PSG’ — Former Brazilian International Dante on 2020 Champions League Final

The 2020 UEFA Champions League Final did not turn out to be the contest that many expected it would be. The high-octane sides of FC Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain combined for five shots on target, with the former scoring the lone goal of the final. Bayern’s performance against PSG was not as dominant as the club’s previous Champions League knockout stage fixtures this season. Still, the reigning Bundesliga champions are more than content with the narrow 1-0 final win.

There are multiple reasons as to why Bayern pulled through against the reigning Ligue 1 champions. But for former Bayern Munich defender Dante, he believes (via RMC Sport) that his longtime side held off PSG because of one key component.

“I think Bayern’s experience in major events made the difference,” Dante said.

The Brazilian defender does believe that the Bayern deserved the win, but he does not think that the side was levels above PSG in the final.

“The strongest won but not only,” Dante said. “But on the match, Bayern was not that superior to PSG, it simply concluded at its first opportunity. It’s difficult to come back afterwards.”

PSG did put up a good fight against a team that came into the fixture with 18 goals scored over the first three rounds of this season’s Champions League knockout stage. For Les Parisiens, it is now time for them to regroup and focus on the new campaign.
