Rodrygo brought it on level terms for the home side with two late goals at the death. His brace forced the match into extra-time, where Real Madrid’s top goal-scorer this season, Karim Benzema converted a spot-kick in the 95th minute to round off a memorable victory for the current La Liga champions.

Real Madrid have scored 28 goals in the Champions League this season, 50% of them have coming in the knockout stages.

“The game was close to finish and we were able to find the last energy we had. We played a good game against a really strong rival,” Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said after the match.

“The greatness of this club is this. It is a club that does not allow you to lower your arms when it seems that everything is over,” he said.

“I’m very happy to participate in another final against a great team, I played against them as a player and as a coach. I’ve lived in Liverpool for two years, for me it’s like a derby, I’m still an ‘Evertonian’ so it feels personal to me.” Anceotti added after becoming the first coach to reach 5 UEFA Champions League Finals.
