    The match-clinching moment

    Liverpool keeper Karius lies on the floor having palmed Gareth Bale's shot into his own net as the Welshman reels away to celebrate making it 3-1 in the final.

    Bizarre scenes as a fan invades the pitch and approaches Ronaldo as he enters the box, but the man is tackled and taken away.

  • 20:33 GMT

    (90 mins) Liverpool have a free-kick on the edge of the Madrid box, Alexander-Arnold swings it in and it pings around the box a bit before Real clear. 3 minutes of added time in Kiev.

  • 20:32 GMT

    (87 mins) Liverpool fans valiantly belt out 'You'll Never Walk Alone' - but they'll probably want the calamitous Karius to walk after this disastrous display. Jurgen Klopp looks stunned on the sideline - it looks like it will be a second Champions League final defeat for the German.

    (84 mins) Just when you thought Liverpool keeper Loris Karuis' night couldn't get any worse... Gareth Bale releases a fierce left-footed strike from range, it's dipping and swerving in the air, but it's right at the Liverpool keeper  - who palms it into his own net. Looks like that will be that, barring another miracle...but Liverpool do specialize in those...

    GOAL! Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool, Bale again!

  • 20:27 GMT

    (82 mins) CLOSE! Wonderful stuff from Real as Ronaldo curls a cross into the box with the outside of his boot. Bale arriving like a comet meets it on the volley but Karius saves well. We then have the first yellow card as Mane goes in late on Ramos.

  • 20:23 GMT

    (80 mins) Real Madrid's big game experience proving key here. They are keeping the ball well and are staying nice and compact whenever Liverpool have possession. The Reds looking a bit flat.

    How did he do that? Players watch on as Gareth Bale acrobatically puts Real Madrid ahead again.
