Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham: Mo Salah scores a controversial penalty in the SECOND MINUTE to the delight of Merseyside – and leaving Harry Kane’s Spurs an titanic task in the Champions League final

Liverpool have taken the lead through a Mo Salah penalty within the first two minutes of the Champions League Final after a questionable hand ball decision by the referee.

The Egyptian forward hammered it past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris, who dived the right way but couldn’t stop it.

A penalty was given in the first minute after Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko unintentionally blocked a pass by Sadio Mane with his arm.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mo Salah took to the field in front of a 70,000-strong crowd of roaring supporters in Madrid as both sides warm up before the first all-English Champions League Final since 2008.

Spurs fans rejoiced as news broke around an hour before kick off that their super striker would be starting as the club look to win their first trophy in 11 years.

The return of Kane, Spurs’ top scorer this season with 24 goals in all competitions, is a major boost for the London club.

Tonight marks the first time Tottenham have reached the Champions League Final in their history, while it’s Liverpool’s second final in as many years, after falling to Real Madrid in Kiev 12 months ago.
