The last time Real Madrid lost a Champions League final was in 1981 (against Liverpool); it was played in Paris and ended 1-0.
41 years later, Real Madrid got their revenge in the city by the same score.
May 27, 1981: LIVERPOOL 1-0 REAL MADRID
May 28, 2022: LIVERPOOL 0-1 REAL MADRID
The last time Liverpool lost a Champions League final was in 2018 (against Real Madrid). Unfortunately for Liverpool, they were on the wrong end of the score again.
May 26, 2018: REAL MADRID 3-1 LIVERPOOL
REAL MADRID WENT THROUGH PARIS ST. GERMAIN, CHELSEA, MANCHESTER CITY, AND LIVERPOOL TO WIN THIS TITLE.
There didn’t do it the easy way at all. The knockout round for Real Madrid has been a case of coming from a losing position to getting an improbable victory against teams that were arguably the better side on the day but this final was different.
Despite being the group winner, Real Madrid’s path to the final is what clubs try to avoid by topping their group in the preliminary rounds.
You are a major threat when you arrive at the final by knocking out both finalists from the season before; Chelsea in the quarter-final, and Manchester City in the semifinal.
Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp were both going for their second Champions League title with their current club.ANCELOTTI’s SUCCESS ALLOWED HIM TO SET THE RECORD AS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL MANAGER IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HISTORY WITH 4 TITLES.
ANCELOTTI NOW HAS 6 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TITLES ATTACHED TO HIS NAME. Twice as AC Milan’s player, twice as AC Milan’s manager, twice as Real Madrid’s manager.
A Croatian has now won the Champions League in each of the last 10 seasons:
2016: Modrić, Kovačić
2017: Modrić, Kovačić
2018: Modrić, Kovačić
