Real Madrid broke the deadlock thanks to Karim Benzema’s aggressive play. The Frenchman deflected the ball as Karius attempt to roll it out to his defence. The deflection went straight into the Liverpool goal.

Minutes later, Sadio Mane equalised for the Reds. However, Gareth Bale’s unbelievable overhead goal put Los Blancos on top for good.

Real Madrid got a second goal thanks to another Karius’ mistake. Bale unleashed a vicious shot from 30-yards that Karius attempt to palm down. However, the ball went right through his fingers and in to the goal.

Liverpool lost Mohamed Salah in the opening half through injury. Without Salah on the pitch, Real Madrid began to assert themselves on Liverpool. It was believed Salah went off with a dislocated shoulder.
