Thousands of elated Real Madrid fans celebrate 14th Champions League title

Thousands of exultant Real Madrid fans celebrated their 14th Champions League title late on Saturday (May 28) at the iconic Cibeles fountain after Los Blancos secured a record-extending 14th European Cup when they beat Liverpool 1-0.

Waving scarves, chanting and cheering, fans praised the team.

“We are always confident about the team, but we knew it was re hard (to win),” said Antonio Castro, a supporter celebrating at Cibeles.

Joel, a fan from Venezuela, described the final as “dramatic,” but as a young fan he said he has never seen Real Madrid lose in a final.

“I am very young so if they lost them I was not born, the four previous finals that I watched they won them all and in an epic way,” he said.

The final delayed for more than half an hour after police tried to stop people trying to force their way into the Stade de France on Saturday.

Vinicius Junior scored just before the hour with Real’s first attempt on goal and their goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made several fine saves to deny Liverpool, who end the season with two domestic cups having also failed to win the Premier League.
