Kings of Europe

A goal from Vinícius, culminating in a cross from Fede Valverde, gave Real Madrid its fourteenth European Cup against Liverpool (0-1).

The Brazilian, in the 59th minute, tipped the balance in favor of Carlo Ancelotti’s team, who suffered horrors in the first half and showed their physical superiority in the second.

With a goal from Vinícius and a merry-go-round of impossible saves from Thibaut Courtois, Real Madrid added one more European Cup to their list of winners, the fifth in the last eight years.

One of the most suffered and worked Champions Leagues by Real Madrid deserved a great celebration. After an exercise in resistance against Liverpool, with an exhibition by Thibaut Courtois and a goal by Vinícius, the madridista players began the celebrations on the pitch, relieving the tension of the game.

As soon as the final ended, Luka Modric hugged Carlo Ancelotti in a gesture full of emotion and recognition of the Italian coach who became the most successful in the competition with his fourth conquest.

Courtois ran jumping for joy to the opposite end of the game, one of the greatest displays of a goalkeeper in a Champions League final, to shout uncontrollably towards the end where the Real Madrid fans were. He had just made his dream come true. The ‘Champions’ that was taken from him in Lisbon, he had won by being the protagonist with the shield that he dreamed of defending.

The moment was special for Marcelo, without minutes in which his last game is shaping up, suffering on the bench in every Liverpool attack, sitting in the fridge counting down the minutes until his reunion with the cup. On this occasion he was not accompanied by Karim Benzema, the Frenchman left the solo recognition to the player who won the most titles in the club’s history.

Marcelo picked up the ‘orejona’ in his great moment as captain and went to the rest of his teammates to raise it to the sky of Paris shouting with joy, exhibiting euphoria while everyone jumped, the confetti flew behind him and the fireworks lit up Saint- Dennis. They had made a corridor as a gesture of respect for the runner-up when Liverpool picked up his medal in tears after another lost final against Real Madrid.

The relatives and loved ones of the Real Madrid players came down to the pitch even before picking up the cup that was taken to the back where the fans who supported the entire match shouted “champions, champions” proud of the effort of their players who signed the way harder to glory. EFE
