Bale took a step back and delivered the awesome score with a insane bicycle kick, spinning it off the outside of his left foot to direct it by helpless Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius and give Real Madrid a 2-1 lead.

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.

After tangling with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, Salah left the pitch in tears as his European dreams came crashing down before those of his team-mates followed on an evening to forget. He will now face a race against time to be fit for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Salah was replaced by Adam Lallana, who had only recently returned from a hamstring injury.

Ronaldo's header from Isco's cross was parried by Karius, and Benzema turned in the loose ball, but the Frenchman had come from a fraction ahead of the last defender and the flag came up.

In the semifinals, Real won 2-1 in Munich against Bayern in the first leg and led by the same score in the second leg, before Bayern equalized and came within inches of a finding a late victor.

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

Mane struck the post as Klopp's side rallied, while Andrew Robertson's brilliant last-ditch tackle denied Ronaldo a certain goal which would have ended the match there and then. 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.
