It only took a couple of minutes for the Reds to get themselves in front in Madrid after Mo Salah converted the penalty awarded for a Moussa Sissoko handball in the box.
Seeing the Egyptian King stood 12-yards from goal, every Red watching held their breath, anticipating the incredible idea we could go ahead so early in a final.
Sadio Mané waited expectantly for him to despatch it, which he did with aplomb.
The Senegalese then fell to his knees, looking to the sky and celebrating wildly like every single one of us Reds.
Salah’s opener was the second-fastest scored in a Champions League final, ironically placed behind Paolo Maldini’s for AC Milan when we triumphed over them in 2005’s final in Istanbul.
After what happened last year, with Salah tearfully departing the pitch after tangling with Serio Ramos, it was fitting that our talisman was able to make such a decisive contribution so early on.
