It is not every day that a European team can celebrate the feat of having lifted its 14th UEFA Champions League title, a fierce competition in which only the best clubs in Europe have a place, and that is what happened in the tough Real Madrid vs Liverpool match.

Both teams clashed on the pitch, each seeking to win the title of the most prestigious club tournament in Europe, and in the 59th minute the fate was decided, when Vinicius Jr. scored the goal that sealed the fate of the match, giving Madrid the title, and when it was the turn of Los Merengues to lift the trophy, an epic moment arrived.

When it was time to lift the title, Karim Benzema showed the category that characterizes him and gave his captain's armband to the Brazilian Marcelo, so that he would be the one to lift the 14th cup that the Madrid club has won in this competition, in which they showed that they always knew how to have epic comebacks to complicated matches, as happened with PSG or Atletico Madrid.

That is why Benzema decided to let Marcelo be the one to lift the cup since he is about to leave Real Madrid, a team that has not renewed him for the next season, so it is rumored that the player is about to leave the team in which he also won the Champions League.
