It just wasn't to be. Liverpool suffered the most heartbreaking defeat to Real Madrid tonight as two horrendous mistakes from Loris Karius played a huge part in Los Blancos' eventual win.
In one of the most bizarre moments in Champions League final history, Karius gifted Karim Benzema with an easy tap in after throwing it directly at his body.
Then the 24-year-old fumbled Gareth Bale's long range effort to end Liverpool's faint chances.

It just wasn't the goalkeeper's night and after the final whistle, he sobbed to the travelling support and asked for forgiveness.
With tears in his eyes, Karius raised his hand and apologised for his errors.
Simply heart-breaking to see Loris Karius apologising to the incredible Liverpool support with tears streaming down his face, a battered, broken man. Heart-breaking. Team-mates leaving him alone, they know no words can help #UCLfinal- David Maddock (@MaddockMirror) May 26, 2018
He may have made vital mistakes but some Liverpool fans applauded their goalkeeper - a warming gesture in an otherwise devastating night.
