REAL Madrid last night ended the 2016 season on a glorious

note after beating stubborn city rival, Atletico Madrid in the

UEFA Champions League final decided at the San Siro Stadium

in the Italian city of Milan. Yesterday’s victory was the second

time in two years that Real would beat Atletico in the final,

having done so in 2014 in Lisbon, in a match that also went into

extra-time before Real won 4-1.

Ronaldo was the one that ensured victory for his side as he

scored the very last kick in the penalty shoot out that followed

after scores stood at 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra time. Real

scored all her five penalties while Atletico banged in four with

Juanfran throwing away his own kick.

Meanwhile, Real’s Sergio Ramos has set a new Champions

League record by becoming the first defender to score in two

finals.

The Spain international opened the scoring against Atletico Madrid

in the 15th minute by poking home Gareth Bale’s flick-on, although

the centre-back looked to be in an offside position. Ramos

scored again during the penalty shoot out.

Including the European Cup, Ramos becomes the fourth

defender overall to score in two finals after former Ajax

centre-back Velibor Vasovic, former Celtic left-back Tommy

Gemmell and former Liverpool full-back Phil Neal.

But he is the first to do so since the competition was

reformatted and rebranded as the Champions League in the

1992-93 season.

Ramos also becomes the sixth player to score in two European

Cup finals for Madrid after Alfredo Di Stefano, Hector Rial,

Francisco Gento, Ferenc Puskas and Raul.
