Liverpool lose Champions League Final

Liverpool's season ended with further disappointment on Saturday night as the Reds lost the Champions League Final to Real Madrid.  Just a week after losing out on the Premier League Title by a single point, Jurgen Klopp's side lost to a stubborn Real Madrid team 1-0, Vinicius Jnr with the only goal in the second half.

Looking to avenge the defeat suffered in the 2018 Final against Madrid, Liverpool were the better team for long periods of the game, particularly the first 40 minutes, but came up against an inspired performance from Madrid Keeper Courtois, who duly won the Man of the Match award.  Courtois made several stunning saves, pushing Mane's shot onto the post in the first half and denying Salah twice in the second half from point blank range.  So good was Courtois' performance that Liverpool could probably have played for another 90 minutes and not scored - it was simply one of those nights where things were not going to go Liverpool's way.

As is so often the case with these types of games, there was an inevitability about Madrid's goal.  In the biggest games, if you fail to take your chances when on top, you often get punished.

Liverpool's players sank to the turf at the end of the game, devastated at the lose, but also exhausted - mentally and physically - from an incredible season that has seen the Reds play 63 games.  Last nights game was simply one game to far, and Madrid are the masters of capitalising on such opportunities.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
