Quick Reads

Bayern Munich completed a second treble in seven years with their tense 1-0 victory over PSG in the Champions League final on Sunday evening.

Elsewhere, Liverpool seemed to be living their best life on their pre-season trip to Austria, and a number of players we’d never heard of scored absolute screamers.
