At the blast of the final whistle which brought the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League to an end, fans of Liverpool Football Club erupted in volcanic excitement as their team clinched the coveted trophy for the sixth time in their history.

Prior to the final which was held at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Liverpool last won the coveted trophy in 2005 where they beat AC Milan on penalties in the finals at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul after a dramatic comeback from 3 goals down at half-time.

In the 2018/2019 season, Liverpool enjoyed an excellent campaign but winning the Champions League was their only hope of any silverware in a season they were exceptionally good; that hope was almost lost, but for an unprecedented Semi-final comeback to defeat Spanish side, Barcelona by 4-0 goals at Anfield after trailing 0 – 3 from at Camp Nou a fortnight before.

With their confidence now at an all-time high, Liverpool faced an equally pumped up Tottenham side that also qualified ahead of Ajax FC after trailing by a lone goal from a home defeat from the first leg, setting up the all English finals.

A penalty within the first minute of the game served as the perfect start for Liverpool after a low cross by Sadio Mane struck the outstretched arm of Moussa Sissoko inside the 18-yard box. The spot kick converted by Mohammed Salah turned the whole atmosphere at the Heineken House into a frenzy as Liverpool fans vigorously celebrated their early lead. The first half ended with Liverpool at an advantage as both teams battled to take full control of the game.
