90 seconds away

Atletico Madrid opened the score line in the first half and for a long time looked as though they could hold on to their lead. They defended well against fierce pressure from Real Madrid during the last ten minutes of the game only to concede a goal by Ramos is the dying seconds of added time.

During extra time though, it looked as though Atletico Madrid had sapped all of their reserve. A goal from Gareth Bale gave Real the lead they needed to seal the game. The two further goals that followed just added the icing to the cake.

All credit to Real Madrid for pulling it off but you can’t help but feel sorry for Atletico who almost made it their first Champion’s League win.

So Real have now won this competition 10 times and Ancelotti joins Bob Paisley as the only two managers to have won it three times.
