Carlo Ancelotti’s team relied on the defensive seriousness that has defined him this season and on the Belgian goalkeeper’s saves
Real Madrid has been proclaimed champion of Europe for the fourteenth time in its history after defeating Liverpool this Saturday (0-1) thanks to a goal from Vinicius Junior in the second part of a final, played at the Stade de France in Paris, where the Whites executed their undisputed status as ‘Kings’ of the ‘Old Continent’.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team relied on the defensive seriousness that has defined him this season and on the saves from Thibaut Courtoisan essential piece to maintain the 0-0 lead until match time, when Vinicius Junior -assisted by Fede Valverde- scored the winning goal with a shot at the far post.
In this way, Real Madrid adds a new title to its excellent European curriculum, the fifth ‘Champions’ in the last nine years and the fourteenth of its history (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2022).
