Defending champions Real Madrid beat Liverpool by 3-1 to win champions league in the final of UEFA Champions Football League in Kiev.Zinedine Zidane first coached to win three straight champions league titles.Real Madrid made history tonight by becoming the first club ever to win the champions league 3 times, back to back.

Real Madrid are aiming for their third-successive champions league title and fourth in five years to make it 13 in the club’s illustrious history. Real would become the fourth team to claim three successive European crown and the first in the champions league era.

The records could continue to tumble with real’s Cristiano Ronaldo hoping to become the first player in the champions league era to win five titles, four with real.

However, Porto, Manchester City and AS Roma were all blown away in the knockout stages by Liverpool with stunning first-leg performances that delivered 13 goals, most from their frontline trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian maestro whose 44 goals have spearheaded their season.

Liverpool tend to score in bursts, often in the first half, and if they seize the initiative in final real may struggle to play catch up against a team never so dangerous as when they defend.
