Second Half Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool May 26 2018
A wondergoal for the ages from Gareth Bale earned Real Madrid their 13th European crown in a 3-1 triumph over Liverpool in the Champions League Final on Saturday night at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev.
Three minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 61st, the Welshman produced the spectacular, firing in an overhead kick that will surely become a YouTube favourite for many years to come.
Bale’s strike was preceded by a bizarre opener from Karim Benzema, who scored by blocking a throw from Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius with his leg, before Sadio Mane pulled the Reds level. Following his sensational goal, Bale would tack on another thanks to another error from Karius, thus sealing Real’s third straight Champions League title and fourth in five years.
