Published

on

Real Madrid are the Champions of Europe, with a 1-0 win over Liverpool in the UEFA Champion’s League final

Madrid have clinched their 14th title, making them the highest club to do so.

It was a nail-biting game. Liverpool dominated the match but was persistently met with a defensive wall from the Spaniards.

Making it impossible for them to score.

However, it all came down to the man of the match, Madrid’s goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois who consistently made stellar saves.

This helped Madrid to eventually make a break and snap a goal to secure them the lead.

Madrid’s fans screamed with joy as they claimed their 14th Champions League trophy.

Liverpool chaos

The match also came with its own drama outside of the pitch. The final was delayed for 30 minutes, amid chaotic scenes outside the Paris Stade de France stadium.

Large crowds were stuck outside the gates in the build-up to the game, leaving many confused and angry. Liverpool fans were tear-gassed and unable to enter the stadium, while Real Madrid fans poured into their seats.

UEFA has since put the blame on fans who purchased ‘fake’ tickets but did not specify from which team the fans were from.

“In the lead-up to the game, the turnstiles at the Liverpool end became blocked by thousands fans who had purchased fake tickets which did not work in the turnstiles.

This created a build-up of fans trying to get in. As a result, the kick off was delayed by 35 minutes to allow as many fans as possible with genuine tickets to gain access.

As numbers outside the stadium continued to build up after kick off, the police dispersed them with tear gas and forced them away from the stadium.

UEFA is sympathetic to those affected by these events and will further review these matters urgently together with the French police and authorities, and with the French Football Federation.

Liverpool has now called for a formal investigation into the treatment of its fans.

“We are hugely disappointed at the stadium entry issues and breakdown of the security perimeter that Liverpool fans faced this evening at Stade de France.

This is the greatest match in European football and supporters should not have to experience the scenes we have witnessed tonight.

We have officially requested a formal investigation into the causes of these unacceptable issues.”
