Jurgen Klopp‘s side were aiming to avenge their Champions League final defeat to Real
Madrid in Kyiv last season, but they were unable to produce a leveller and fell 1-0 to the
Spanish giants as Vinicius snuck in at the far post to convert Federico Valverde’s low cross
from close range (59).
The game’s start time had been pushed back by more than a half-hour due to logistical
issues outside the Stade de France, which prompted long lines and dangerous crowding for
Liverpool fans seeking to enter the stadium.
Despite the chaotic conditions, Liverpool maintained their focus and generated a number of
chances, but they were unable to beat Thibaut Courtois, who deflected a Sadio Mane shot
onto the inside of the post in the first half and made a number of other spectacular saves.
Liverpool were in their third Champions League final in five years, but their defeat means
they will miss out on a treble after winning the Carabao Cup and FA Cup earlier this season,
while Madrid celebrate yet another European triumph, their run to the final marked by a
series of incredible comebacks.
For the past ten years, he has reigned supreme over Europe
Real Madrid began a brilliant decade under Ancelotti in 2014, when they won their 10th Champions League title. They were down a goal when Sergio Ramos equalized in the 93rd minute to force extra time and win the season. Only Barca in 2015 stood in the way of what was to come, which was unprecedented in football history.
They won three Champions League titles in a row with Zinedine Zidane on the bench, in 2016, 2017, and 2018. The most recent was in Kiev, following Gareth Bale’s brace and Benzema’s goal after Loris Karius’ error, as well as Salah’s disputed injury following Ramos’ tackle.
As fate would have it, they faced again in the final this year, with Madrid triumphing once more. After a fantastic season in the Champions League, which included comeback victories at the Bernabeu against PSG, Chelsea, and Man City, this is a well-deserved victory. Madrid had a perfect season, culminating in the 14th Champions League title.

The “late arrival” of supporters for the highlight event was first blamed by stadium officials
for the delayed kickoff.
“In the lead-up to the game, the turnstiles at the Liverpool end got blocked by thousands of
fans who had acquired bogus tickets that did not operate in the turnstiles,” UEFA said in a
statement released just before the game, in which Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0.
