An injury to Mohamed Salah in the first half dominated all the talk on social media as the game went into second half but at the end of the match, the attention was more centered on Gareth Bale's stunner that won the 2018 Champions League for Real Madrid.
It was 2:45am in Malaysia when the match kick-off but it did not deter fans from going to match viewing parties or their neighbourhood mamak restaurants to catch one of the biggest games of the football calendar.
Here are some of the best reactions from a night/early morning of drama.
Unfortunately this game will be remembered for #karius rather than Bale's goal or even Salah's injury. Such is a keeper's life— Dr. Iqbal Rizal (@DrIqbalENT) May 26, 2018
