titles to become the most successful manager in the history of this competition.

Liverpool

now have been denied both the Premier League and Champions League titles, leaving them having won only the Carabao Cup and FA Cup this season.

Klopp's side started the game better and the first good chance of the match was for Salah but Courtois with a sharp save stopped his closed range effort.

Mane was close to scoring in the 20th minute but Courtois makes a top save to keep the ball from reaching the back of the net.

Karim Benzema scored in the last minutes of the first half after a mixed up between Alisson and two Liverpool defenders but his goal was controversially disallowed for offisde.

Vinicius netted on 58 minutes as he fired into an empty net from a low cross from the edge of the 18-yard box from Federico Valverde.

Liverpool had a good chance to score in the 69th minute but Courtois once again denied Salah. At his near post, Courtois blocks Salah's close range attempt from the tightest angles.

In the 79th minute, Salah's strike deflects off Jota and the Real's goalkeeper scrambles down to his left to turn the ball wide for the corner.

For a record 14th time,

Real Madrid

is the Champions of Europe after a remarkable run to the final but this game was overshadowed by events before the match started.

The Final was delayed by 30 minutes amid chaotic scenes outside the stadium as thousands of Liverpool fans were stuck outside and police deployed pepper spray and tear gas on supporters.
