An inexplicable triumph from statistics | Sports

Real Madrid conquered its fourteenth European Cup, with its 1-0 victory against Liverpool at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, in a success that is difficult to explain from the statistics, which shows an overwhelming dominance of Liverpool, which ran into with the recital of saves by Thibaut Courtois, the ‘Champions’ goalkeeper, and fell in the only shot on goal for Madrid.

There is not a piece of data from the final, other than defensively, that shows Real Madrid’s superiority over Liverpool. Hence the greatness of a sport like football, which rewarded the resistance exercise of Carlo Ancelotti’s team and his tactical commitment to put a stop to a team that had only gone one game without scoring in the last 25 they played.
