Vinicius Jr. (59) gave the royal family the lead. For Kroos, this was his fifth Champions League title, his coach Carlo Ancelotti rising to the coach’s only record with his fourth success. On the other hand, Klopp had to accept his third defeat in his fourth final, as he wasted with the Reds the revenge of the 2018 3-1 final against Real. Instead of the hoped-for quartet, Liverpool remain with the National Cup.

At first, thousands of fans at the Stade de France had to wait a long time for the match to start. Pictures and videos on social media showed some chaos at the entrance gates. Tear gas was used. However, UEFA stuck with its inaugural short with pop star Camila Cabello. Fans admitted this out loud and cheers for their teams.

The highly anticipated game has been developed with world-class single players and titular offensive systems on both sides. Liverpool initially set out the initial stage, and Real Madrid started with more caution. Mohamed Salah was the first to test Liverpool goalkeeper Courtois, who was able to dodge and was also there seconds later against Thiago (16).

Klopp followed up the Reds’ performance strongly on the sidelines. Sadio Mane, allegedly wooing Bayern, forced Courtois to another save, and the Belgian directed the ball into the post (21′). At this point, Real Madrid came most close to Liverpool’s goal.

The star group around Kroos had major problems controlling the game themselves. Ancelotti was clearly unhappy with the Spanish champions’ performance in the first half. Unlike Liverpool, the last phase of the season was less demanding than Real Madrid. Karim Benzema’s supposed offside goal was not calculated after a long review using video evidence (44′). “Right decision,” longtime FIFA referee Manuel Gref commented on ZDF.

Liverpool actually retained control of the match after that. Salah continued to stir up unrest in the Madrid penalty area. But the Reds did not score. Real needed a quick attack for that after an hour: Daniel Carvajal brought the ball sharply into the penalty area, and Vinicius Junior was in place and scored to make a lucky lead. Klopp seemed clearly served. Real Madrid’s only shot should be on Liverpool’s goal.

Liverpool reacted angrily to the delay. Salah found his master in Courtois several times (64 and 68). The Reds ran – and Courtois saved the Egyptian star Salah (82nd place) again.
