Real Madrid Champions League Champion 2021-2022

The Champions League Final became a match that attracted attention among football lovers, because Liverpool's defeat was due to the negligence of the players who were included in the category of great players on the team.

Previously Liverpool failed to win the English league, whose match ended last week, in the final of this season's UCL match had a revenge mission from the Liverpool team.

Liverpool conceded in the first half by Karim Benzema's goal, but the goal was deemed invalid because Benzema was caught offside, and the first half was closed with the score 0-0.

And in the second half Liverpool's side continued to press with an attack dominated by them, and Real Madrid started to come out under pressure.

And in the 59th minute, the Reds' negligence was put to good use by Real Madrid and successfully produced a goal by Vinicius Junior with a pass from Federico Valverde.

Surprised by Real Madrid's goal, the Reds stepped up the pressure, but to no avail. Thibaut Courtois was great and slick with 9 saves. And the match ended with Real Madrid's 1-0 victory and made Real Madrid the UCL winner for the 14th time.

This game garnered a lot of attention and judgment, here are the mistakes that led to Liverpool's defeat:

Waste of Tempo and Domination
Failed to Take Advantage of Domination
After an offside goal by Karim Benzema, the Reds launched a revenge mission. Good dominance resulted in many chances, even the first 20 minutes forced the Madrid goalkeeper to make 4 saves.
In total, the Reds shot against the opponent's goal 24 times but none of them resulted in a goal.

Tempo Change
In the first half Liverpool played with a high tempo and high pressure, making it difficult for Real Madrid to build attacks. This scenario went well throughout the first half causing Madrid to be confined to the field throughout the first half.
But in the second half Liverpool even relaxed the pressure and caused Real Madrid to develop the game. And producing goals for Real Madrid and Liverpool instead trapped the opposing team's game.

Weak in the wing formation
Failed to Anticipate Trent Alexander's Duel - Arnold Vs Vinicius
Trent Alexander-Arnold has indeed become one of Liverpool's mainstay weapons this season through his 2 goals and 9 assists. And weakness while defending is in the spotlight. Where Vinicius' speed is a problem for Alexander Arnold.
And the unfortunate thing approached Liverpool, when Real Madrid had the ball in the middle of the field, it was Trenat Alexander-Arnold who was actually interested in Karim Benzema's movement, so Vinicius was not guarded by the Reds on the right side of defense and scored a goal.

Weakened Full Back Duo
Two fullbacks should be the key to attack but in the final the Reds performed poorly and in the end the attack did not go well.

Win against Southampton, Liverpool will compete with Man City for first place in the Premier League

Liverpool with 89 points won against Southampton will continue their struggle against Man City with 90 for the Premier League Trophy.

In the first ten minutes Liverpool could enjoy the game well, and in the first half Liverpool and Southampton drew 1-1.

Where in turns 3 Liverpool players acted as attackers but were conceded instead because Southampton managed to counterattack by Nathan Redmond in the 14th minute.

And this makes Liverpool aggressively attack repeatedly at every opportunity and in the 27th minute Liverpool can equalize the score with Takumi's rocket kick.

And the 1-1 score remained until the jury finally blew the long whistle signaling the first half was over.

And in the second half there were endless attacks from both teams, each defending their position and trying to attack the opponent relentlessly, but the good news came from Liverpool in the 67th minute Joel Maltip gave a header and added to the score and took the lead to 2-1 over Southampton.

After winning with a score of 2, Liverpool were not satisfied and still continued to attack which made Southampton have to work extra to withstand attacks and the score 2-1 lasted until the end of the second half, and made Liverpool the winner.

Even though Liverpool won, Man City was still the champion

Where the key now is the success of Man City equalizing against West Ham, if you lose Man City are in a difficult position.

Liverpool win, equalizes with Manchester City

Aston Villa's early lead by Luiz who capitalized on the rebound and his header. And it was Maltip who took a shot from Virgl to make it 1-1.

And when Fabinho was forced to leave in the first half due to an injury, it was Mane who in 10 games scored 9 goals, and this 9th goal was his 15th league goal.

Liverpool a commanding lead ahead of the last-16 second leg

Liverpool put one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday with a 2-0 win at Inter Milan which came after a hard-fought encounter at a bubbling San Siro. Goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the last quarter of an hour gave Liverpool a commanding lead ahead of the last-16 second leg at Anfield in three weeks' time.

The result was harsh on Italian champions Inter, who dominated the contest in front of a passionate home crowd for long periods after the break and struck the woodwork through Hakan Calhanoglu in the 16th minute.

However they could not find their way past a Liverpool backline impeccably marshalled by Virgil van Dijk and were punished late on by a Reds team who have now won their last seven matches in all competitions.

"Tough place to come, a very good team, difficult to break down and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the crowd. A good result to take back to Anfield," Van Dijk said to BT Sport.

"Everyone expects to be under pressure, it is the Champions League. The message before was you need to be ready to suffer and do the hard work. It is a very good performance, clean sheet and happy days."

The last eight now looks a step too far for Inter after making the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time in a decade, leaving Juventus as Italy's only real hope of success in the competition.

"I think it was a good match and we should be proud of the way we played against one of the best teams in the world. For 65-70 minutes we deserved to win," Inter coach Simone Inzaghi told reporters after the match.

Liverpool strike late

Inzaghi's side started with all the enthusiasm expected of a team back in the knockouts after such a long time away and Lautaro Martinez got the crowd on their feet in the fifth minute with a long-range effort which flew just wide.

Liverpool responded almost immediately and established territorial dominance, with a Salah shot well blocked and Thiago Alcantara shooting over from the edge of the box.

However it was Inter who had the best chance of the half through Calhanoglu, who after being fed by the rampaging Ivan Perisic let off a shot from a tight angle which beat Alisson but smashed out off the crossbar.

They were unlucky again 10 minutes later when, after being sent charging down the right flank, Denzel Dumfries flashed over a low cross which was cut out just as it looked destined to find the feet of an unmarked Edin Dzeko.

Inter came out with the bit between their teeth after the interval and swarmed over a clearly flustered Liverpool but again could not get past Van Dijk and company, who kept getting a foot or head in just as danger seemed imminent.

Perisic hung over a beautiful cross in the 52nd minute which Martinez could not quite get to, and a similar pattern was repeated several times with Liverpool rebuffing an increasingly frustrated Inter team unable to convert its supremacy into goals.

The away side punished them with their first proper chance of the second half, Firmino beating Alessandro Bastoni to Andy Robertson's 75th-minute corner and guiding his header past Samir Handanovic.

Perisic flashed a distance effort just over but then Salah gave Liverpool a huge advantage eight minutes after Firmino's opener with a fortunate strike which squirmed home and gave the Egyptian an incredible eighth goal in seven Champions League games this season.

Listen to the latest songs, only on
With the San Siro atmosphere thoroughly deflated, Liverpool then calmly saw out the remainder of the match to almost guarantee themselves a place in next month's draw for the last eight.
