Brilliant Gareth Bale Powers Real Madrid To Third Consecutive Champions League Title

GettyImages-961825588

When asked if his opening goal - the stunning overhead kick - was his best ever, Bale said: "It has to be - Champions League final, no bigger stage and I'm happy to get the win".

The spotlight will be on the Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo, playing for Real Madrid and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian forward.

Later in the first half, Real Madrid right back Dani Carvajal also left the game with a leg injury.

The Spanish club's fourth Champions League triumph in five years, and 13th European Cup success in total, was fully deserved despite Liverpool, the competition's top scorers this season, making an aggressive start to the game.

Bale took a step back and delivered the awesome score with a insane bicycle kick, spinning it off the outside of his left foot to direct it by helpless Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius and give Real Madrid a 2-1 lead.

The Egyptian broke down in tears after brought down by Real captain Sergio Ramos in the 26th minute. Jurgen Klopp has been able to boost his bench with the inclusion of Adam Lallana and fit-again Emre Can. "It's something that I've always wanted to do and it hasn't happened here this season for one reason or another", Bale said. They even had the ball in the net in the 43rd minute, only to be denied by a marginal offside call.

The goal was still being debated when Mane equalised from close range four minutes later, after Lovren's header from a James Milner corner.

"There were doubts during the year, but Real Madrid came together and has achieved something historic", Ronaldo was reported by the publication Goal as saying.

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.

The Reds will be desperate to add a sixth European Cup to their cabinet, particularly as they have lifted just two trophies since they became European champions in 2005, when they famously came back from 3-0 down at halftime to beat AC Milan on penalties in Istanbul.
