Kickoff was delayed by more than half an hour amid security issues and organisational disarray outside the ground. Jurgen Klopp’s side started the brighter, with Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois brilliantly tipping Sadio Mane’s 21st-minute strike against the post.
Shortly before half-time, Karim Benzema had the ball in the net for Los Blancos but a lengthy VAR check adjudged him to be offside.
Vinicius held his position perfectly at the back post, though, to survive a VAR examination and tap in Federico Valverde’s cross.
