This was a game that Manchester United were supposed to win. You have to remember that United were finalists last season, and it had been quite a while since Bayern even made the final.
As United had control of the game, Bayern knew they were within a goal of knocking them out. And all they needed was that moment or just some magic from a special player.
And that special player was Robben, who stepped up with one of the greatest volleys of all time.
As that corner came over from Ribery and Robben positioned himself, it simply seemed impossible for him to pull it off. Based on the distance, Van Der Sar in goal and the difficulty of the technique.
But Robben showed why he's different and produced a finish not only of the highest technical quality, but ended up knocking out Manchester United.
Oh...and it was at Old Trafford as well.
Returning back to his very best, and reminding all the doubters that he must still be put in the conversation as the best goalkeeper in the world.
Sometimes a keeper does not have to do a lot in games, if they have a great team. And Neuer had a superb team,but he still had to come up and make some critical saves in order to help his team win this CL.
And they were very impressive saves that showed he is back to his very best and makes an argument as being one of the GOATS of the position.
Fearless. Despite his very young age, dude is still a teen, he showed just how accomplished a defender he is.
Understanding the importance of his defensive duties and being a dependable and consistent offensive threat.
They all thought he was done, that his peak was in 2014. But Boateng found a bit of an extra bit of fuel in him, and established himself back in the heart of the defence.
Hey may not have been at his peak, but he showed enough experience to add the needed solidity for a fare more offensive Bayern side that played a high line.
This dude is special. Whether he gets put in defence or attack, he has shown that he is money, and has no issues with the demands of the position.
However, his ability in midfield and excellent distribution of the ball has made him almost invaluable to the team. His versatility makes him one of the most impressive players this season.
Not a lot of people can play in a secondary position. And those that do, you can sell why it's not their primary role as they struggle to be adept at it. For Alaba, he had no issues whatsoever.
You could say that defending is defending and there is no difference between going from left back to central defence. But anyone who has played football will know just how different those two positions are.
Alaba has been almost flawless as a central defender and in this CL has been hands down Bayern's best and most dependable defender. One of the best and most consistent performers there has been this season.
He is the name that not many people outside of Germany know. Just a dude from Schalke that arrived without a lot of fanfare. But if you watch Bayern, he plays an extremely important role.
He is pretty much a more athletic version of Javi Martinez. His pressing game is crazy and is ready to launch into a tackle and winning the ball, but he is also very good at the other end, and can sniff out an opportunity to get in a goal.
For what Flick wants to do with his team, he is an important component for that.
There have been those who have agreed about this man's great ability, but he has seemed lost in the key games for Bayern. That he disappears from his role of controlling the game, which is his duty.
This season was different. Funny that it may be his last, but Thiago truly showed all his best qualities. His composure, passing range and ability to control and dictate the tempo of the game. All the potential that was promised was exemplified this campaign.
And he saved the best for last as he gave PSG a footballing lesson in midfield.
I have been so critical of this dude for so long and had given up on him being worth anything to Bayern. Hence why the Sane deal was made because I think Flick had maybe given up on him too.
But that's just how the story goes. Things come from the most unexpected places. And Coman decided to produce one of his best performances for Bayern in the final, and also decided to cap it off with the winning goal.
If he did that consistently, we would be looking at him differently.
The redemption story. That's one of the best stories and Muller had his for this season, all thanks to Flick.
He was discarded by Kovac and we all thought his decline had begun. But Flick came in and allowed Muller to rediscover himself. Not by changing his game, but reminding him what he does best.
And you saw the best of Muller in the 8-2 bloodbath as his evasive nature and ability to pop up in the right areas lead to his two goals.
He also has a very big mouth when he shouts.
One of Bayern's best players this season. And for their CL run, he again came clutch and shows why he is one of the players to watch for the future.
His big moment was against Lyon were they were coming under serious pressure. Then as big players do, he took it upon himself to go on a run and produce a superb finish with his left foot that changed the game for Bayern.
A very important attacking option for Bayern
He is a player who on his day, can be amazing and can help you win a game. Other times he can be wasteful and almost useless.
When Bayern needed him, he said What's Up and proved to be the more direct and dangerous option offensively that Flick wanted. And he showed that with his goal against Barcelona that helped give them the platform to tear them apart.
In his own way, he played an important role for Bayern as he was in direct competition with Coman. Maybe disappointed he did not start the final, but after seeing how it turned out, he won't complain.
His greatest ever season, and as the main striker for the team, he lead from the very front and he did what his job description called for, which was to get G's.
He may not have needed to score the critical goal, but his presence in the attack still put the fear in opponents and his goal record speaks for itself and can't be ignored.
Based on the career he has had, it would have been unfortunate if there was no Champions League at the end of it. For him personally, this would have been a satisfying achievement in finally getting the big boy trophy.
