Real Madrid 3 -1 Liverpool: Gareth Bale scores stunning goal in Champions League final




Gareth Bale came off the bench and scored a spectacular bicycle kick on the biggest stage as Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 to win their third successive Champions League title.

 
Jurgen Klopp's side, who lost Mohamed Salah in the first half with a suspected dislocated shoulder and then saw Loris Karius gift Karim Benzema the opener (51) had swiftly rallied in Kiev through Sadio Mane (55).

But after agony and ignominy, Bale delivered a moment befitting of the showpiece, his 64th-minute overhead kick sealing a 13th European Cup for the Spanish giants and their fourth in five seasons.
 
 
Karius suffered further embarrassment when he let Bale's late strike (83) from range slip through his gloves but though the Reds competed gamely in adversity, crucial momentum was lost with Salah's untimely exit and Klopp's wait for a European trophy goes on.
