The summary of the night; Loris Karius messed the day for Jurgen Klopp's side after Mohamed Salah has been taken out by Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale came on to make his statement. Loris Karius is not worthy of a match of that status, that was probably the biggest stage of his football career where he was supposed to avoid all errors but it seemed Klopp failed to take care of that weak point against the final.
Real Madrid became the first side to win the Champions League or European Cup for three consecutive seasons since Bayern Munich in 1974-76.
Zinedine Zidane became the third manager to claim the Champions League or European Cup three times, previously by Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley but he is now the first manager to win the trophy three successive times.
Jurgen Klopp has only won one of his seven major finals as a manager, losing 2 DFB Pokal, 2 Champions League, 1 Europa League and 1 League Cup with his only win coming in the DFB Pokal with Borussia Dortmund in 2012.
Gareth Bale is the second British player to get a brace in a European Cup or Champions League final following Bobby Charlton who did the same for Manchester United in 1968.
