It was an unconventional way for Real Madrid to take the lead, but they’re on their way to yet another UEFA Champions League title.
Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius granted Karim Benzema with the opener in the 51st minute after throwing the ball off of the Madrid striker’s foot.
The ball then bounced into the Liverpool net, in a shocking turn of events.
Karius was at it again in the dying minutes, when Gareth Bale‘s fierce, swerving effort landed in the back of the net, despite the ball traveling straight at the goalkeeper.
Bale completed a brace with that finish.Follow @MattReedFutbol
