Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 to win Champions League

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane tore Manchester City to shreds in the quarterfinals, as Liverpool progressed 5-1 winners on aggregate and the trio's exhilarating pace will be a threat for Real Madrid's defense.

Such a strike deserved to be the victor, although it was his long-range shot that beat the embarrassed Karius in the 83rd minute that made sure of the victory.

Meanwhile, Real had its own injury scary just minutes after when right back Dani Carvajal left the game with a leg injury.

Gareth Bale made a game-changing impact when he was brought on to the field in the 64th minute.

The announcement came as thousands of Real Madrid and Liverpool fans are gathering in Kyiv for the first UEFA Champions League final to be played in Ukraine. There is Zinedine Zidane's strike against Bayer Leverkusen in the final nearly 20 years ago, Cristiano Ronaldo's bicycle kick against Juventus this season, and then there is what Gareth Bale did on Saturday against Liverpool in the final.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich had made an nearly incomprehensible mistake to gift Benzema a goal in the semi-final, and Karius's gaffe was every bit as bad. But no one has achieved the feat faster - with each of his three seasons in charge ending by winning the game's biggest club prize.

Ronaldo, 33, leads the competition's scoring charts for a remarkable fifth year in a row and a goal against Liverpool in Kiev will see him surpass Di Stefano and become the only player to score in four European Cup finals. Jurgen Klopp has been able to boost his bench with the inclusion of Adam Lallana and fit-again Emre Can.

Speculation will surround two of Real's attacking stars in the coming days, with Cristiano Ronaldo also hinting at an exit after the game.

Real lost their fear of Liverpool just when Klopp's team had a 10-minute period of doubt.
