Peeep peeep peeeep! It’s all over! Real Madrid have done it!
Los Blancos have won their 14th European title – and now have exactly twice as many as AC Milan, the competition’s next-most successful club.
Liverpool dominated for much of this final and had significantly more shots than Madrid – but a superlative, world-class display by Thibaut Courtois kept the Reds out. He was just unbeatable tonight.95
One more chance for Liverpool. Fabinho brings it forward down the left, before lifting it into the Real Madrid box. It’s not a good cross, however, and flies straight into Courtois’ arms.93
Real Madrid replace Vinícius with Rodrygo Goes.
Van Dijk heads it on into the box to Salah, who tries to bring the ball down. His attempted control bounces off Militao’s midriff, and Liverpool appeal in vain for a penalty.91
What a chance Ceballos has just spurned. Benzema lifts a ball over the top for the midfielder to run on to. He’s in behind the Liverpool defence, but hesitates for just a moment, before trying to square it to Camavinga. He can’t find his team-mate.
A minute later, Benzema lays it off for Camavinga to shoot from the top of the box, but he curls his effort well over the crossbar.
