Champions League final: Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah suffers suspected dislocated shoulder

Real Madrid knows something about scoring wonderful goals in the Champions League.

Such a strike deserved to be the victor, although it was his long-range shot that beat the embarrassed Karius in the 83rd minute that made sure of the victory.

For once, Bale overshadowed teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a quiet game in the Ukrainian capital.

A goalless first half saw Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah exit in tears with a shoulder injury in the 30th.

Bale, who had been controversially left on the bench despite his recent good form, scored twice in a final packed full of memorable moments for good and bad reasons.

Karius blocked Benzema's effort as time ticked down but the goalkeeper was at fault once more seven minutes from time as he allowed Bale's 30-yard strike to slip through his hands.


That was followed five minutes later by the departure of Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich had made an nearly incomprehensible mistake to gift Benzema a goal in the semi-final, and Karius's gaffe was every bit as bad.

Salah has become the team's talisman with 44 goals this season, and the Egyptian went into the game as their number one hope of a winning outcome.

However, sources close to Manchester United said in January they doubted any claims that Ronaldo really wants to leave Real Madrid to return to Old Trafford and that he was merely trying to force a better deal out of his current club. Indeed they were level just four minutes later, Dejan Lovren's towering header from a corner poked in by Sadio Mané at the back post.

The Egyptian forward tried to get up but couldn't shake off the injury and was in tears as he walked off the pitch in the European final.

Mane's pace gives Liverpool the ability to trouble any team, but the real blow caused by Salah's injury was that to Liverpool's self-belief.
