17 things we loved this weekend: Van Dijk, Neuer, Messi, Klich & more
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.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field this weekend.
A ridiculous achievement.
100% – FC Bayern München are the first side in European Cup/Champions League history to win 100% of their games in a single campaign en route to lifting the trophy (11 wins). Flawless. #PSGFCB #UCLfinal pic.twitter.com/taT6pn23Ik

A former Rosario Football Association employee has taken it upon himself to track down all the goals Messi scored for Newell's between the age of 6 and 12. The answer: 234 in 176 games. https://t.co/YEsbGdsga3

Yes, that one. No, we had no idea he was playing in Australia either.
A lot to enjoy about this.
Overhead kicks are always good.
The Serbian second tier is where it’s at.
Fair play to all these players we’ve never heard of scoring brilliant goals.
This is nice.
