The Champions League final between Real Madrid, Spain and Liverpool, England, re-opened after 4 years.
It was Vinicius, a Brazilian striker who visited Korea for the evaluation match against Bentojo on the 2nd of the following month, that changed the atmosphere of Real Madrid, which was dragged on by Liverpool’s wave.
In the 14th minute of the second half, Valverde’s cross headed for Vinicius, who was rushing from the other side, and it broke the goal with one touch.
Vinicius took the lead in reclaiming the Big Year for the first time in four years by scoring the team’s only shot on target to lead the winning goal.
Ancelotti, who previously won the Spanish La Liga and conquered all five major European leagues, gave his team the 14th Champions League trophy.
In addition, he wrote a new history as the manager with the most wins in the tournament by winning the ‘Feast of Stars’ 4 times, twice each at AC Milan and Real Madrid.
“We deserve the title because we have been fighting hard since the round of 16, but we never gave up.”
Real Madrid suffered from Liverpool’s mighty firepower with a score of 3 to 23 in the final.
Goalkeeper Kurtua became the first contributor to the championship with an incredible ‘Save Show’, and even brushed off the sadness he felt in England.
“I won the EPL twice and no one recognized it. A lot of people laughed at me, but now I’m back as a winner.”
Meanwhile, as people flocked to the stadium, the kickoff was delayed for more than 30 minutes, and some Liverpool fans were hit with tear gas sprayed by the police, an unprecedented situation.
With this, the pain of Liverpool and the fans, who knelt again in the return match for the first big year in four years, doubled.
