European giants Real Madrid were crowned the 2022 UEFA Champions League champions for a record 15 times, which is more than twice as many trophies that any European club have won, following their 1-0 victory over premier league's Liverpool FC at the Paris final yesterday.
Following a barren draw in the opening period, the Los Blancos got the only goal of the encounter in the 57th minute thanks to a fine strike by Brazilian international Vinicius Junior that sank the Merseyside Reds as Carlo Ancelotti's side went on to lift the trophy.
