Spanish club Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 in the final of the French Premier League (IPL) on Saturday after the game was postponed for more than half an hour due to security concerns.
Vinicius Jr. of Brazil scored the only goal of the match, following a shot from his teammate Federico Valverde in the 59th minute to bring the Real Spanish League and the Champions League together.
But the main credit for Real’s victory goes to Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who saved a large number of difficult chances from both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in both areas of the match.
Real strengthened its record and became the European champion for the 14th time in its history.
The start of the match was postponed for 36 minutes as police tried to disperse some fans who did not want to go to the “State de France” on the outskirts of the capital Paris.
Liverpool controlled the midfield from the start after Diego Alcandara abruptly joined the starting line-up after recovering from injury, and Salah saved two balls from goalkeeper Cordois.
Liverpool came close to scoring in the 21st minute when Mane hit a powerful ball from Cortois.
Real thought he had advanced with a goal before the break through France striker Karim Benzema, but after a lengthy review by the video assistant referee decided to cancel the goal.
Real’s performance improved in the second half when he scored the crowning goal after Valverde tried to shoot from the right side.
Liverpool pressed in with full force and Cordois brilliantly saved a powerful shot after Salah penetrated from the right side.
