Liverpool have been beaten in the Champions League final after a 1-0 defeat by Real Madrid in Paris.

The Reds dominated much of the first half with Real Madrid's Thibault Courtois making saves, but it was the Spanish champions who came closest to breaking the deadlock with a goal by Karim Benzema disallowed after a lengthy delay for a VAR check.

Brazilian winger Jose Vinicius Junior put Real Madrid ahead in the 59th minute, slotting in after a driven cross from Federico Valverde.

Liverpool had chances to equalise after the goal, but Courtois was able to keep them out.

It was enough to secure the Spanish giant's 15th Champions League title.

But the start of the game was marred by huge delays as Liverpool fans were unable to get into the stadium, some until half time, and tear gas was used on crowds trying to get in to the game.
