The last thing you want to do in a Champions League final is gift the opposition a goal but that's exactly what Loris Karius did against Real Madrid.
Ever since he joined Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has had an issue with his goalkeepers with first Simon Mignolet making mistakes and then Loris Karius, who Klopp bought, also not looking consistently good enough.
There has forever been rumours about the Reds signing a new goalkeeper but the German has stood by his men, especially since Karius became his preferred choice as number one.
However in the Champions League final second half the 24 year old made a huge mistake. Collecting the ball in his area he threw the ball straight at Karim Benzema's outstretched foot and had to watch on in horror as the ball rolled in:
Oh my word! :open_mouth:
A disaster for Loris Karius!

Who was he trying to blame? Unless Karius goes up the other end now and scores two he'll be forever remembered for that incredible assist.

Karius claiming the high foot..
He's had a nightmare there.
Great awareness from Benzema.

You can just look at Karius and that hairstyle and know that he's not to be trusted to make good decisions

One of the worst keeping mistakes I've ever seen at this level. Karius won't sleep for a month

Karius: Hold my beer :beers:
I think that Karius clip (if we lose this game) is going to be the new Gerrard slip :disappointed:- Bateson87 (@bateson87) May 26, 2018
Karius will be very grateful for Sadio Mane's quick thinking for Liverpool's equaliser just minutes later.
