Liverpool FC win UEFA Champions League
Liverpool FC has won the 2019 edition of the UEFA Champions League casting away the disappointment of 2018 in Kyiv against a formidable Real Madrid side.
The match had a sensational start as Sadio Mane’s cross was intercepted by Musa Sissoko’s cross in the 20th second of the encounter. The referee awarded a penalty to Liverpool in which Mohamed Salah rightly converted to give the Anfield side the advantage.
Second-half substitute, Divock Origi worked magic just like he did in the semi-finals encounter against Barcelona in the 86′ minute through a low-cross shot that displaced the goalkeeper and solidified Liverpool’s win in Madrid and a sixth overall European title.
Virgil van Dijk won the man of the match award. Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Allison Becker also had a man of the match performance making spectacular saves to keep the rampaging Tottenham Hotspurs forwards at bay. With the win, Liverpool’s coach Jurgen Klopp has cast aside the unlucky loser tag after losing six cup finals in the past.
