Two sides with very different European pedigree faced off in Madrid in the Champions League final, but for the first time since 2012 Jürgen Klopp won a final. Liverpool sealed their sixth Champions League title with a 2 – 0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool won the Champions League final thanks to an early goal from Mohamed Salah and a late one from Divock Origi.
Liverpool took the lead immediately, Salah converting the penalty after Moussa Sissoko was penalised for handball. Sadio Mané’s cross struck first the chest of the France midfielder and then his right arm, which was out in front of him, pointing. The referee, Damir Skomina, pointed to the spot after only 22 seconds. Salah struck the ball just off centre to Hugo Lloris’s left.
