Neuer faced two of the best attackers in Europe in the Champions League final in Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, but neither of them managed to beat the Bayern captain.
The 18th minute was particularly memorable with several world-class saves. First, Neuer fended off against Neymar and then blocked the Brazilian’s second attempt with an incredible flying save (see picture).
Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel spoke afterwards of “unfair competition” with a smile. After all, PSG last failed to score in a game in 2016. The trophy clearly had Neuer’s name on it.
