Real Madrid beat Liverpool to claim the UCL trophy.


Real Madrid beat Liverpool to claim the UCL trophy.
On a tumultuous night in Paris, Liverpool faced Champions League agony as Real Madrid secured the cup for the 14th time in their history thanks to Vinicius Junior's second-half strike.

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.
