The Welshman added a second when Karius dropped the ball over his own goal line.

In truth, though, despite their efforts, Liverpool never looked as much of a threat once Egyptian worldwide Salah went down under a challenge from Real captain Sergio Ramos.

The title is the 13th European championship for Real, who became the first team to win three successive finals in the Champions League era.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, who scored two goals in Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Liverpool.

Having had 111 touches in the Madrid half in the first 30 minutes; Liverpool had seven in the remainder of the half. Victory was Madrid's - again.
