I'd 8-2 be a Barca fan...

With massive delays, postponements, one-legged knockout rounds and a complete change in location, the 2019/20 Champions League will always stand as one of the strangest and most unforgettable editions of the tournament.

From start to finish, 386 goals were scored across 118 games as Bayern Munich romped to their sixth European win in their history following a 1-0 win over Thomas Tuchel's PSG. Bayern became the first team in history to win a European tournament with a 100% win rate, scoring forty-three goals in just eleven games. As well as registering ten goals alone in London with big wins over Tottenham and Chelsea, they were also responsible for inflicting one of the most embarrassing defeats ever witnessed on Barcelona with an 8-2 win in the quarter-final.

No side in Europe deserved the win more than Bayern, and the likes of Alphonso Davies, Joshua Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara and Robert Lewandowski have all bagged the recognition they deserve for helping the Bavarians surge to the top of the tree again.

However, plenty of other players managed to carve out a name for themselves during the course of the campaign.
