#UCLFinal: Ronaldo Scores In Final, As Madrid Claim 11th Trophy

share on:

Man of the moment is Cristiano Ronaldo as he helped Real Madrid to their 11th UCL trophy after scoring the deciding penalty.

It was a feisty encounter between the bitter rivals from Spain, that saw some physical challenges in every half.

It might have been a repeat of the 2014 encounter, but Atletico matched, eventual winners, Real Madrid.

Ramos opened the scoring in the first half, after Bale headed Kroos’ delivery into the six-yard box.

Antoine Griezmann was unbelievably sub par, and that was evident as he missed a chance to put his team back into the game with a penalty goal. Only for the crossbar to deny his attempts.

The second half saw Diego Simeone inject Carrasco into the mix, with the Portuguese midfielder notching in the equaliser that saw the match go into extra time.

Ronaldo played through injury and did not have any major effect for the whole 120 minutes of regular play. Missing out on the shot at being the first player to score in three finals.

The penalty shoot out, was fun to watch, with Jan Oblak staying rooted to the ground for most of the shots played, he will be kicking himself.

Juanfran was the only play who failed to score, with the upright coming to Ospina’s rescue.

It was down to Ronaldo to deliver the UCL for the Los Blancos, and he made no mistake from the spot.

Zidane has now joined a league of elite managers, who have won the UCL trophy both as a player and a coach.
