Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool
Whether or not Mo Salah will be fit for the World Cup, Kiev will forever remain the darkest night of his Career. Ramos Challenge was diabolic but reconsider able. It was so unfortunate the Man Liverpool needed most fell under a diabolic challenge by Sergio Ramos had to be forced off in 28mins after what appeared to be a dislocated shoulder injury. The PFA Player of the year walk down the tunnel in tears; he knew his night was over with the World Cup less than a month away. Fans argued that Ramos should’ve been sent off probably a yellow card caution but the referee rebuffed.
Liverpool couldn’t put Mo Salah’s lost behind them, though with Salah on the pitch I don’t think the result would’ve been different, for a team who was set for the unimaginable dynasty. It was impossible to stop them.
They came an INCREDI’BALE GOAL! one of the greatest CL goal. The Brit was just brilliant on the night with ever solid Marcelo who played in a lifted pass in the penalty area for ssubstituteGareth Bale who made no mistake with an acrobatic strike into the bottom corner to shortly after coming on to extend Madrid lead 2-1 after Sadio Mane level matters from close range. Indeed it was a great goal in definition. If you haven’t seen the goal you better do!
The Liverpool fan who ran into the pitch to interrupt CRISTIANO RONALDO from scoring made another headline.
Karius Hoolah! Frank Lampard rightly said; such mistakes doesn’t belong to Champions League final and you’ll agree with him.Karius didn’t forgive himself after the schoolboy mistake which allows Karim Benzema give Madrid the lead. He was still hurting, led to lost confidence throughout the game. He will still have himself to blame for poor positioning which allows Gareth Bale to hit a rocket strike that caught him unaware to put Madrid 3-1 up to record his deserved second on the night. Liverpool defense simply didn’t know how to deal with him arguably Madrid best player on the night.
It ended 3-1 in favour of the Spanish giant who had to see out the rest of game without Carvajal, the right back hamstring injury reoccurred just 41st mins on the pitch had to be substituted with the World Cup roaming the Spaniard walk down the tunnel in tears. It’s unconfirmed whether he will miss or recover in time for the tournament in Russia. Madrid held on to the famous victory becoming the first side ever in the history of the competition to win the title three consecutive times.
