Bale: "To win at home is a dream come true"

Bale:

In the second half, Madrid came back with a force to be reckoned with, and and quickly broke free from the deadlock with a goal from Carlos Casemiro in the 60th minute.

Slowly, Real Madrid got a foothold in the match with Isco looking to control play by dropping deep to collect the ball.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as holders Real Madrid were crowned champions of Europe for a record 12th time after outclassing 10-man Juventus in a high-quality Champions League final in Cardiff.

Particularly after the world player of the year ensured Madrid pulled off one of soccer's hardest feats, becoming the first team to successfully defend their Champions League title. He also became the first man to score in three finals, adding to his goals in the 2008 and 2014 finals.

Juventus started the brighter and Mario Mandzukic's overhead kick will live long in the memory, but Ronaldo's brace along with efforts from Casemiro and Marco Asensio left Real celebrating a comfortable 4-1 win.

Those are all the teams who have been a game away from winning back-to-back Champions League titles since the tournament was renamed in 1992.

"I'm delighted. I'm top scorer in the Champions League again".

"We had a date with history, we really wanted to win and we managed to achieve what no-one has ever done before - win two Champions League finals in a row", Ramos told reporters. I can not explain why we played like we did in the second half.

"It's been a spectacular year, you couldn't dream of anything better", said Real coach Zinedine Zidane.

The Italian champions also had substitute Juan Cuadrado sent off after he was shown a second yellow card for a gentle push on Sergio Ramos that drew a comical overreaction from the Madrid skipper.

FACT: Juventus have conceded as many goals in this game as they had in the rest of the campaign. We won Serie A and the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League final.

In his absence, Spanish global Isco shone, he helped Los Blancos secure their first La Liga title since 2012 and scored the all-important away goal in the semi-final second leg against city rivals Atletico Madrid last month.
