Real Madrid won the Champions League for the 14th time

Coach Carlo Ancelotti's team beat Liverpool, led by manager Jurgen Klopp, 1-0 in the final in Paris. Vinicius Junior scored the golden goal in the 59th minute. On the other hand, Liverpool failed to win their third title of the season after the English League Cup and FA Cup.

The match was delayed by 37 minutes as English fans tried to enter the stadium without tickets. From the start, Liverpool were the team that dominated the game and betting on sports online. Jurgen Klopp's team put pressure on Real Madrid early on, using a high level of counter-pressing and creating early opportunities in the game. Trent Alexander-Arnold cleverly passed the ball to Mohamed Salah on the right into the penalty area, whose shot from five yards was saved by Thibaut Courtois in the Real Madrid goal (16).

A little later, the Belgian goalkeeper proved his worth again: after Sadio Mane's fine solo effort and the Senegalese's powerful shot, Courtois fingertips intercepted the ball and directed it into the left-hand post (21).

On the other hand, Real Madrid FC, who also hosted live betting Vulkan for a long time, could boast virtually nothing in terms of attack. If there was any danger, it came from Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid planning for the future

However, the Royals did not manage to score until just before half-time. But that's when things got really dangerous. After a wild mix-up in the Liverpool penalty area, Benzema struck from five meters out on the right flank. However, after a lengthy VAR review, the ball was ruled offside. The ball came from Fede Valverde and was probably deflected only by Ibrahima Konate (43rd).

Liverpool started the second half again with heavy pressure. A dangerous cross from Alexander-Arnold failed to be converted by Luis Diaz (47th). But Madrid were now better at counter attacking and kept the Reds at bay.

However, Real Madrid still had few shots on goal. So the Royals' advantage came as a surprise. During a quick counterattack, Valverde took aim at the far corner of the penalty area on the right, but struck from close range. However, Vinicius JĂșnior was in the right place at the second post and with a shot from five meters made the score 1-0 (59.).

LFC were now challenged and responded with furious attacks. First Salah failed to hit Courtois with a shot from 18 yards (64th) and then the outstanding Madrid keeper saved Diogo Jota's shot from a sharp angle (69th).

In the final phase, Liverpool threw everything forward. But Courtois got in the way time and again. First against Hota (80th), then against Salah's strong attempt at a shot from a sharp angle (82nd).

In the end, Carlo Ancelotti's side won 1-0, and Jurgen Klopp's dream of winning the league title with Liverpool faded into oblivion.
