True champion: Ronaldo helps Real Madrid make history

True champion: Ronaldo helps Real Madrid make history

"The city has done an immaculate job in hosting a great event", he said.

The 12-time champions from the Spanish capital became the first team in the Champions League era to win back-to-back titles with their 4-1 victory over Juventus at the Millennium Stadium.

- With the first goal of the game, Real Madrid became the first club to reach 500 Champions League goals.

"We kept the ball, pressured higher up and physically I think we won the game there as well because of the determination we showed". "I'm happy, I'm incredibly satisfied".

The 2016 Ballon d'or victor scored against Chelsea in 2008, Atletico Madrid in 2014 and now Juventus in 2017 Champions League final.

"It's a big disappointment, because we thought that we'd done everything necessary to play this final and finally win it", Buffon, who has never won the Champions League, told Mediaset Premium.

Congratulations to all of our Croatian representatives in the Champions League final for an incredible achievement!

After a stint guiding Madrid B, Zidane replaced coach Rafa Benitez when the squad was in crisis in early 2016, and quickly got it back on track.

Ronaldo's run to the top of the scoring charts is particularly impressive when one considers he had only two goals to his name entering the quarter-finals.

The Portugal forward said Zidane helped Madrid turn things around after a lackluster start.

“Zidane believes in us a lot, ” Ronaldo said.

"We knew that Juventus are an unbelievably good defending team".

Ramos's theatrics were an unedifying moment in a generally uplifting final and, fittingly, it ended on a positive note when Marcelo charged to the byline and crossed for Asensio to tuck home the fourth. Bale was substituted in in the 77th with the game already under control, receiving a proper ovation by his hometown fans.

"I have a one-year contract left".
