Liverpool defeats Tottenham with a score of 2-0 in the Championship League Final at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid. This is their sixth European Cup triumph since 2005. Mohamed Salah opened the first scoring by converting a penalty kick at the second minute and substitute Divock Origi sealed the victory with a strike at the 88th minute. It was redemption for Salah to have won this match after he was forced out of the Kiev showcase last year because of his injured shoulder. But this year, Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko’s arm injury resulted to Liverpool’s early penalty opening.

Salah’s goal record in the match scored the second quickest goal in Championship League Final’s history. Even if he was one of the main reasons that their team won, he humbly said in an interview, “It’s not an individual performance, the whole team was unbelievable today.” As for Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, Liverpool’s victory breaks his record of six consecutive defeats in major finals. This also gives him his first Champions League title in three finals.
