Brilliant Bale breaks Liverpool hearts 96 lượt xem
KIEV (Ukraine), May 27 — Gareth Bale came off the bench to score twice, w88 malaysia including one of the all-time great goals in a Champions League final, as Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev yesterday to take the trophy for the third year running. Bale’s jaw-dropping overhead kick in the 64th minute put Real 2-1 up moments after his introduction, following a dramatic start to the second half in which Karim Benzema gave Real the lead as a result of a Loris Karius howler.
Sadio Mane had briefly restored parity, but Bale put Real in front again and then sealed the triumph late on with a long-range strike that the unfortunate Karius could only punch into the net. Jurgen Klopp’s and Liverpool’s own evening was marred by the loss of a distraught Mohamed Salahhow to play pokerto injury in the first half, the Egyptian coming off half an hour in having damaged his shoulder.
This was not to be Salah’s night, with Real allowing Zinedine Zidane to become the first coach ever to win the Champions League three years in a row. “With a team like this we can go far, but to win three of them, it’s something crazy,” Zidane said after the game. Madrid are the first team to achieve that feat since Bayern Munich in 1976. This is their fourth title in five years, and their 13th overall.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now won five in his great career, but even mansion88 he could not argue that this was Bale’s evening. When asked if it was the best goal he had ever scored, Bale said: “I’d have to say it is, on the biggest stage in world football to score a goal like that is a dream come true.”
But Bale has not been a regular in the Real team this season and he admitted he will now consider his future in the weeks ahead. “I feel I should be playing every week and if that’s not the case here it’s something I need to consider. We will sit down in the summer and try to resolve things.” The Welshman had been tipped to feature in the starting line-up here but was left out for Isco — just as he had been in the final against Juventus last year — before making an emphatic impact as a substitute.For Liverpool, thism88 mobilegame will be remembered for the disaster that befell goalkeeper Karius in the second half, and for Salah’s tears as he departed the pitch at the NSC Olympiyskyi.
