David Alaba takes a stand on the world's biggest stage
In the midst of triumphant celebrations from the Bayern Munich squad, David Alaba took a moment to dedicate the victory to one of the most pertinent issues that the world faces today.

Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain will have to wait their turn
Paris Saint-Germain was closer than it has ever been to winning the Champions League trophy last night. Both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were denied repeatedly by the resilience and brilliance of Manuel Neuer and the Brazilian forward was inconsolable after the final whistle.
Hansi Flick won the treble in his first season
Bayern Munich's 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in November last year proved to be a blessing in disguise.
