Leon Goretzka picked out the French winger with a perfect clipped cross and the attacker made no mistake to bury home.
Paris Saint-Germain had the better of the chances in the first half while Robert Lewandowski hit the post.
Neymar and Kylian Mbappe attempted to muster a fightback but the Bundesliga
champions held firm.
Reacting to the win, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick said: “I am proud of this team. When I started in November, I read the headlines: ‘No need to fear or respect Bayern Munich anymore’, ‘The team is awful’, but the development of my team since then has been sensational.
“We made maximum use of everything. It is not easy to win three titles. It was hard work. You could see during winter how much determination we have in this team, which is obviously something you wish for as a coach.
“Every player developed this season in such a way so as to win three titles. This only happens as a team. The team is always in the foreground. When you see how we worked until the 96th minute tonight in defence then it is a superb team spirit.”
