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
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
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.
