Real Madrid-Liverpool - Madrid beat Liverpool to complete hat-trick

Gareth Bale Real Madrid Champions League final 260518

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah suffered an apparent shoulder injury and left the field in tears inside half an hour of Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The Egypt global, who has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season and had helped fire Jurgen Klopp's side to the Kiev showpiece, left the field after 30 minutes after landing awkwardly following a challenge from Sergio Ramos. The two interlocked arms as they both went to the ground and the Egyptian suffered the worst of it when his shoulder hit the ground and his arm appeared to be in an awkward position.

He added on being left out of Zinedine Zidane's starting XI for the fourth Champions League final of his Madrid career: "Very disappointed not to start the game".

Gareth Bale's bicycle kick came just moments after he had come off the Real Madrid bench as a substitute. "I am pretty sure in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts", Klopp said.


Salah's absence in the second half will significantly diminish Liverpool's attacking threat. He was replaced by Nacho.

After collecting a through ball from Toni Kroos, Karius attempted to throw the ball out only for Benzema to stretch a leg out and poke the ball home.

Liverpool's equaliser came within four minutes from a corner on the right. Nothing, however, will linger in the memory longer than Bale's first goal - applauded by the Liverpool fans - and the mistakes of the beaten goalkeeper. Dejan Lovren headed goalward from a corner and Sadio Mane nipped in front of Keylor Navas to poke home.
