Eternal and unsinkable, Real Madrid maintained its European legend this Saturday by winning its fourteenth Champions League at the expense of Liverpool (1-0), dominating but defeated, after a final disruption by major logistical problems.
A huge game from Thibaut Courtois in goal and a goal from Vinicius (59th) were enough for the "Merengues" to win a long-closed final, less crazy than the previous rounds.
But this team won "hard" all season, against Paris Saint-Germain (0-1/3-1), Chelsea (3-1/2-3 a.p.) then Manchester City (3-4/ 3-1 a.p.).
In Saint-Denis, we especially saw the defenders shine, with a beautiful duel between Dani Carvajal and Luis Diaz or a big game from Ibrahima Konaté, full of authority but defeated for his first C1 final.
This is the first for young French internationals Ferland Mendy and Eduardo Camavinga.
KARIM BENZEMA SOON BALLON D'OR?
Marcelo and Luka Modric come, like “Benz”, to win a fifth C1, one unit from the record of Francisco Gento, who lifted the first six of Real.
The C1's top scorer (15 goals) this season has scored decisive points for the Ballon d'Or, beating rivals Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané, now twice as many C1 (14) as his first pursuer, the AC Milan (7). The "White House" has reinstalled its hegemony over European football.
