Liverpool vs Real Madrid LIVE: Champions League final result, score and reaction

Relive all the action from the Stade de France after Vinicius ensured Real Madrid of a record-extending 14th European Cup

Jurgen Klopp dedicates Liverpool's Champions League final to people of Ukraine

Liverpool were denied a seventh European crown as Real Madrid became kings of the continent once again thanks to Vinicius Junior’s strike in a Champions League final marred by chaos outside the Stade de France.

Paris stepped in as host after UEFA stripped St Petersburg of the showpiece following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but it did not provide a fitting host as European royalty went toe-to-toe in the biggest club match of the season.

Kick-off had to be delayed by 36 minutes due to substantial security issues outside the Stade de France, where Liverpool would be edged out 1-0 in a tense, engaging final settled by Real star Vinicius Jr.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were unable to find a response to the second-half strike as Carlo Ancelotti, managing a record fifth Champions League final just a year after leaving Everton, oversaw the Spanish giants’ 14th European Cup triumph.

It was a heartbreaking end to a memorable season for Liverpool, who won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup before being pipped to the Premier League title by a point and losing in the French capital.

Relive all the action from Paris:

1653772725

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

81 mins: Eder Militao stays on the deck feigning an injury and the referee jogs over to tell him to get up which he does. The referee won’t be standing for any time-wasting attempts.

Save! Another effort from Salah comes flying towards the goal and once again Courtois can’t be beaten even with Diogo Jota charging at him.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

78 mins: Thiago and Henderson are hooked by Jurgen Klopp with Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita brought on. Liverpool are effectively playing 4-2-4 now. Can they get an equaliser?

1653772332

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

75 mins: Nearly. Alexander-Arnold sets himself on the inside right and drills the ball into the box. Diogo Jota flings his foot at the ball but can’t divert it at goal and the effort goes wide.

1653772226

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

72 mins: Courtois makes another blinding save as he somehow scrambles over to the left side of his goal to deny Salah from close range. He’s been Madrid’s best player so far.

Vinicius Jr wants another goal. He cuts inside of Konate and runs it along the front edge of the box only for the centre-back to time his tackle perfectly and disposses the Real forward.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

69 mins: Liverpool win another corner but Robertson doesn’t beat the first man and Carvajal nods it away.

Liverpool recycle the ball and win another set piece. This one comes in to Konate who can’t control the ball. Fabinho gets to it next and heads it towards Salah but Madrid scramble it clear.

1653771824

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

66 mins: Can Diogo Jota have more of an impact for Liverpool? He replaces Luis Diaz as Jurgen Klopp goes to the bench first. Sadio Mane looks to have moved out to the left with Jota slotting in through the middle.

Liverpool win a free kick that Robertson floats into the box. Militao gets up highest and heads it clear.

1653771714

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

65 mins: Save! A typical Mo Salah move. He receives the ball out on the right wing and darts inside rolling the ball onto his left foot. He strikes it brilliantly but Real Madrid’s big goalkeeper flings himself across to the right and palms the ball away! Another huge save from Courtois.

1653771567

Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid

62 mins: You’d have to say that goal came against the run of play but it was beautifully worked from the Spanish champions. Liverpool have plenty of time to get back into the game but they’ll need to be more clinical in the final third.

Dani Carvajal once again dispossesses Luis Diaz and Madrid knock the ball into midfield to Valverde who is cleaned out by Fabinho. The Brazilian picks up the first yellow card of the game.

GOAL! Liverpool 0 - 1 Real Madrid (Vinicius Jr, 59’)⚽️

59 mins: Real Madrid take the lead! They quickly break with the pitch and Federico Valverde brings it into the right side fo the box. He fizzes one over to the far post where Vinicius Jr arrives in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold who turns it home!

1653771344

Liverpool 0 - 0 Real Madrid

57 mins: Real’s free kick is sent up to Casemiro who wins the ball but is flagged offside.

Liverpool work the ball up to the right side and into Salah who darts inside. He has one, two shots both blocked and there’s a loud appeal from handball as David Alaba stops the second attempt then boots it clear. The ball does strike his arm but there’s no way that’s being given.
