The meeting ended with the score 1:0. Real Madrid won the eighth final in a row, and the head coach of the club Carlo Ancelotti broke the record for the number of Champions League titles.

Real Madrid beat English Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League final at the Stade de France in Paris.

The only goal was scored by Brazilian forward Vinicius Junior (59th minute).

The 21-year-old Brazilian became the youngest goal scorer in a Champions League final since 2009. Then the gates of Manchester United at the age of 21 were hit by Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

The start of the game was postponed several times for security reasons. As a result, the game started with a delay of 37 minutes.

There were huge queues at the entrance to the stadium, due to which many fans could not get to their seats on time. Also, some fans without tickets tried to break into the stadium, the police had to use tear gas.

Real Madrid earned €22 million for winning the final, Liverpool earned €15.5 million as a finalist. In total, the Madrid club earned €109.8 million for participating in the Champions League, the Merseyside club earned €115.8. Real Madrid have also guaranteed themselves €3.5m as a Super Cup entrant.

For the first time since 2018, the Madrid club have won the Champions League title. Real Madrid holds the record for the most wins in the most prestigious European competition with 14. Over the past ten years, the club has won the tournament five times, as well as three times in a row, which no one has been able to do since the format change and renaming of the competition to the Champions League in the 1992/93 season.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has become the sole leader in the number of victories in the Champions League / European Cup. He won the trophy twice with AC Milan (2003, 2007) and Real Madrid (2014, 2021). In second place are the Englishman Bob Paisley (1977, 1978, 1981) and Zinedine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018), who each led Liverpool and Real Madrid to victories, respectively.

Ancelotti's teams met Liverpool three times in the final. In the first "Milan" under his leadership lost on penalties, leading during the meeting with a score of 3:0. In the rest, Milan and Real Madrid won each.

Previously, Liverpool met Real Madrid twice in the final. In 1981 in Paris he won with a score of 1:0, in 2018 in Kyiv he lost with a score of 3:1. The Kyiv meeting was remembered for the blunders of the German goalkeeper of the Merseysiders Loris Karius. It was in 1981 that Madrid lost for the last time in the decisive match of the tournament. After the "Royal Club" won eight finals.

In total, Real lost three times in the final - the club also lost to Lisbon Benfica (1962, 3:5) and Inter Milan (1966, 1:3).

Liverpool is a six-time Champions League winner. In terms of the number of titles in this tournament, it ranks third, the second line belongs to Milan (7). At the same time, the Italian club also reached the final more often (10 vs. 11).

Liverpool, under German manager Jurgen Klopp, reached the final for the third time in four years and won the decisive match of the tournament once (2019).

In total, Klopp has led his clubs to the Champions League final four times. In the 2012/13 season, Borussia Dortmund lost to Bayern Munich under his leadership.
