Mane was bright in phases but, ultimately, the Liverpool star was unable to score.
And, after the game, he showed what a class act he is by consoling teammates on the field.
Mane was captured approaching Virgil van Dijk, who was on one knee looking dejected following the contest at the Stade de France.
And the former Southampton forward also consoled a devastated Fabinho, too.

While Liverpool was in misery, Madrid was overjoyed.
Speaking after the match Carlo Ancelotti hailed his side for their performance, saying: “I can’t believe it. We had a fantastic season.
“We did really well. It was a difficult game and we suffered a lot, more so in the first half. In the end, I think we deserved to win this competition.
“We’re really happy. What can I say? I can’t say more.
“I think we passed through really difficult games. The supporters helped us a lot in the last game. They helped us tonight.
“We’re happy and they’re happy.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, has insisted his team will bounce back from the loss and go again next season.
