Liverpool outplayed Tottenham with a score of 2-0 in the Championship League final at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid. This is their sixth European Cup victory since 2005. Mohamed Salah opened the first scoring when he shot a direct free kick in the second minute and substitute Divock Origi finished the game in a strike at the 88th minute. The victory was a great moment for Salah to get back from being forced out of the Kiev showcase in 2018 because of his injured shoulder. But this year, Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko’s arm injury resulted to Liverpool’s early penalty opening.

Salah said in an interview shortly after the final whistle, “It’s not an individual performance, the whole team was unbelievable today.” Salah’s goal record of 1 minute and 48 seconds in the match is considered as the second quickest goal in the Championship League Final history. As for Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, Liverpool’s victory has broken the record of six defeats in major finals and gives him his first Champions League title in three finals.
