Who won the 2022 Champions League final?

Real Madrid won the game and with it, collected their 14th European Cup/Champions League.

Liverpool were arguably the better of the two sides in Paris but failed to take their chances. The Reds had 24 shots but were met by a determined performance from Los Blancos' goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.

The game's defining moment came on 59 minutes, when Vinicius Junior converted Fede Valverde's cross-shot. The Brazilian showed good movement to get in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and gave Alisson no chance with his close-range finish.

Real's success also saw boss Carlo Ancleotti become the first coach to win four Champions Leagues.
