Real Madrid win Champions League final against Liverpool
Real Madrid ended an incredible Champions League season by defeating Liverpool 1-0 in the final to win the competition for the 14th time.
The LaLiga winners were down on aggregate late in the second legs against PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City in the final stages this season, but each time pulled off a comeback that ranged from ruthless to completely unbelievable.
They were under siege for much of the final at the Stade de France, particularly in the first half, but held firm in the face of Liverpool onslaught.
That allowed them to take the lead when Vinicius Junior scored just before the hour mark, and despite the Reds’ best efforts, including the introduction of Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota, they were unable to find an equalizer.
