King Coman reigns supreme at the Parc des Princes
Kingsley Coman affectionately referred to the UEFA Champions League trophy as "my queen" in the build-up to FC Bayern's last-16 first leg away to Paris Saint-Germain. Fittingly, the 26-year-old proved himself to be Bayern's king with the decisive goal at the Parc des Princes, stirring memories of his match-winning performance in the 2019/20 Champions League final triumph over his former club.
Davies-Coman – a match made in heaven
Coman and Alphonso Davies warmed up for the heavyweight clash in the City of Love by enjoying a pre-match date with a difference, before getting down to business on Valentine's night. It was in the 53rd minute that the proverbial Cupid's arrow found its mark, as substitute Davies crossed for Coman to deliver the winning goal.
"It's my hometown, I was born here," Coman - who came through the PSG youth ranks - said after the game. "We can really achieve something when we play like that, but we also got a bit lucky at the end. We're on the right path."
Although the contest's Man of the Match was withdrawn in the 75th minute after taking a knock, head coach Julian Nagelsmann didn't appear overly concerned at the full-time whistle. "I don't think it's a bad one, but I still don't know," he admitted.
Needless to say, the entire Bayern camp will be hoping Coman's injury is nothing serious. The France international has scored four goals across his last three competitive appearances, extending Bayern's eye-catching record of never having lost when he has been on target to 48 matches (W45, D3).
Bayern still have a way to go before being crowned Kings of Europe - the PSG second leg is up next on 8 March - but they have every chance with King Coman in such irresistible form.
As Davies put it on Date Night, Bayern want to show the world that they and the Champions League are a match made in heaven.
