#ChampionsLeagueFinal2018: Real Madrid wins third consecutive Champions League final

Once again Real Madrid have been crowned the UEFA Champions League winner for the year 2018, making them the first team in modem history to win the trophy three times back to back.
The game which was played in Kiev, saw Liverpool press Madrid during the first twenty minutes having the upper hand with possession and chances created but the game took a turn when starman Mo Salah got injured on the 30th minutes and was force to leave the pitch as he was replaced by Adam Lallana.

Madrid opened the scoring through Benzema after tapping in a Ronaldo header but the goal was rule offside. A mistake from Liverpool keeper Loris Karius saw Benzema open the scoring for Madrid in the second half but Mane was able to get them back on level term before substitute Gareth Bale who had not spent more that 10 minutes on the field scored a spectacular second goal to put Real Madrid ahead and from that moment it was Madrid all the way though Mane came close again hitting the wood work but in the end Madrid was the victor.

Thanks to another error from the Karius, Bale got his second and Madrid's third for the night and making  Zinedine Zidane the first coach to win the Champions league three times back to back
