For the 13th time in history, Real Madrid has once again won the Champions League. Saturday night was an Epic night when Madrid defeated Liverpool by 3-1, with a brilliant bicycle kick goal from Gareth Bale that marked the Los Blancos team winning a third straight Champions League crown.

Additionally, two very bad bloopers from Liverpool's goalkeeper also made Madrid to swipe the cup.

The game was flipped over in the second half after Madrid got a chance to take advantage of momentum as Liverpool lost its superstar Mohamed Salah, who got a shoulder injury in the first half of the match.

With the Madrid’s victory, its manager Zinedine Zidane has now become the first manager to win three consecutive Champions League titles.

Madrid’s scoring was opened with Karim Benzema after a gaffe from Loris Karius in goal early in the second half. However, Sadio Mane equalized moments later to give the Cincinnati Reds some life back.

A late knockout kick from Bale was another gaffe from Liverpool’s goalkeeper.

Madrid hasn't lost a Champions League final since 1981. They also become the first team to win three continuous matches since Bayern Munich in the mid-70s.
