Real Madrid is European champion: Ancelotti more and more in history
The Champions League final, after several delays due to the delayed entry of Liverpool fans, starts 36 minutes late. In the first half, Liverpool are in control of the game. The ‘Reds’ engage on more than a few occasions an extraordinary Courtois, who on one occasion helps himself with the pole to reject Mane’s conclusion. Towards the end of the first half Benzema puts Real ahead. A goal canceled after a very long control at the Var. In the second half the leitmotiv of the match is the same, with less intensity than in the first half. The coldness of Real Madrid has the jersey: at the first shot on goal comes the goal that decides the game. Valverde takes the whole band, serves a shrewd Vinicius in the middle who beats Alisson with the door half open. Liverpool try to get back into the game, Real defends themselves with humility by lowering themselves a lot. Even in the second half, the Belgian goalkeeper imposes himself by denying Salah the joy of a potential rematch. Real Madrid have won yet another final, eight out of eight since the competition was named Uefa. More and more in history Carlo Ancelotti: the first coach to win four.
