GERMAN television has unearthed a clip of Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos elbow-charging cock-up keeper Loris Karius before the Liverpool keeper’s first fatal error in Kiev.
Ramos had already taken out Reds’ talisman injuring Mo Salah with a rough tackle that ended the Egyptian hitman’s Champions League final night prematurely.

In the end poor Karius’ two dreadful, schoolboy errors did for Liverpool as they sank to a disappointing 3-1 defeat.
But did Ramos’ challenge on the German stopper effect his performance?
Ramos cleared out Karius long after the ball had gone as he looked to have smacked him in the side of the head.
German TV station ZDF highlighted footage of the goalkeeper taking a heavy blow to the head less than two minutes before unbelievably rolling the ball straight to Karim Benzema to open the scoring.
