Champions League Final 2022
The 2022 UEFA Champions League has been an exciting one thus far and has seen fans enjoy an enthralling run of action as they await the final game.
The two teams that will be playing in the finals of this season’s elite European club competition have been confirmed and it promises to be an exciting encounter.
The Champions League final 2022 is all set and we can only wait for a few weeks to get a taste of the action when perennial UCL winners Real Madrid will face an ever-exciting Liverpool FC on the night.
Liverpool FC were the first confirmed finalists of the 2022 UEFA Champions League after surviving a scare against Villarreal at Estadio de la Cerámica. Jurgen Klopp’s men were two goals down at halftime and had to come from behind to win 3:2 and 5:2 on aggregate.
Real Madrid also sealed their place from an uncertain position as they were a goal down at the Bernabeu and losing 5:3 on aggregate at the 88th minute of the game before Rodrygo Goes struck.
Los Blancos went ahead with 2 quick goals in less than 2 minutes scored a penalty in extra time to lead on 6:5 on aggregate and progress to the final.
Therefore, we won’t be having an all-English UCL final as we had in the 2020/21 season as Real Madrid eliminated the two finalists from last year, Chelsea and Manchester City, en route to the 2022 UEFA Champions League final.
The legendary Carlo Ancelotti will be coming up against another manager who is on the path to legendary, Jurgen Klopp and we can’t wait to see how the game pans out.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola and the Citizens will have to wait for another season as the UEFA Champions League trophy continues to elude them.
