Champions League simulated with Man City winning for first time after nervy 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in final – The Sun

MANCHESTER CITY have beaten Bayern Munich to win the Champions League.

But there won't be a victory parade being planned just yet, as it was on a simulated final.

With a whole host of events postponed or cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic, fans have been left relying on virtual sports.

On Saturday ITV broadcast a virtual Grand National after the original Aintree version was cancelled.

And the World Boxing Super Series are running their middleweight legends tournament using the legendary Fight Night computer game on the back of their hugely popular heavyweight version.

Mike Tyson outpointed Muhammad Ali in the final of that one in a real battle of boxing legends.


Using Football Manager data, Manchester City beat Bayern Munich to win Europe's biggest football crown.

Kevin De Bruyne's 20-yard deflected shot clinched a 2-1 win for Man City over their German opposition

This also means City are champions of Europe for the first time in their history.

Sergio Aguero had earlier opened the scoring after six minutes before Robert Lewandowski levelled the scores just before half-time.

De Bruyne ensured boss Pep Guardiola was hoisting the trophy with a sublime 77th-minute winner.

According to the simulator, City are the only Premier League team to make the quarter finals after Chelsea are beaten in their last 16 tie by Bayern.

All eyes will now turn to whether City can replicate the simulation once the football season restarts as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage around the world.
