    The heartache of Paris Saint-Germain's defeat in the Champions League final is perfectly summed up by French paper L'Equipe in their Monday edition.

    A picture of a tearful Neymar at full-time is matched with the headline 'Inconsolable'.

    Former PSG winger Kingsley Coman was the match-winner, scoring the only goal of the game on 59 minutes with a powerful header.

    The French outfit spurned several good chances against Bayern and were punished and L'Equipe noted that too.

    'For having missed too many chances, especially by Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG can have regrets. Bayern won their sixth Champions League thanks to a goal from former Parisian Kingsley Coman.'

    In contrast the front cover of German publication Bild is of a euphoric tone.

    'Bayern, the kings of Europe,' their headline reads with a picture of Coman celebrating his goal as well as another of captain Manuel Neuer lifting the famous trophy.

    It's not just the papers in France and Germany that reacted to the showpiece.

    In Spain, Marca's headline reads 'Money does not bring happiness (yet)' in relationship to PSG's controversial wealth and the fact that the club are still yet to win the European Cup.

    The paper then goes on to praise Neuer for his display, a sentiment echoed by AS, who lead their coverage with 'Bayern are in heaven'.

    Catalan-based Mundo Deportivo, who witnessed Bayern dismantle Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals, write: 'The sixth title for Bayern,' before adding: 'A new European power has established itself.'

    Meanwhile, in Italy the press acknowledge Bayern's feat of winning the European Cup six times. However, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport both take a slight Serie A angle on the story with the fact that goalscoring hero Coman left Juventus for Bayern Munich.
