Liverpool Kings of Europe | Salah on Target | LIV 2-0 TOT

Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah’s second-minute penalty put Liverpool ahead and substitute Divock Origi fired home a late second as they were crowned European champions for the sixth time.

Egypt striker Salah, who had painful memories of last year’s final defeat by Real Madrid after suffering a shoulder injury, got his side off to a flying start in Madrid by lashing home from the penalty spot after a handball from Moussa Sissoko.

Tottenham kept their heads after a nightmare opening and came to life when semi-final hat-trick hero Lucas Moura came off the bench but, with Harry Kane lacking sharpness after an ankle injury, another miraculous European comeback proved beyond them.

Liverpool did not produce much of their usual whirlwind attacking football but they were more intelligent and powerful than Spurs and sealed a sixth European Cup triumph with an arrowed finish from substitute Origi in the 87th minute.
