Real Madrid Win The Champions League Final

Zidane achieved what no other coach could in the Champions League era - consecutive trophies after titleholders Madrid beat 10-man Juventus 4-1 in Cardiff on Saturday.

Italian powerhouse Juventus quickly responded two minutes later when Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic executed an acrobatic volley to equalize.

"We had a great first half in which we had Real in trouble".

Zinedine Zidane's men took control after the interval as Brazilian midfielder Casemiro's deflected shot restored the lead for the Spanish side.

Minutes later, Ronaldo put in his second goal of the game to take control of the match.

Real Madrid have become the first side in the history of the Champions League to retain the trophy.

"The first half was really tough, against a brilliant team in every aspect, but in the second half we saw the best performance from Real Madrid all season", he said.

The change will include all preseason, regular season and playoff games, although postseason contests can not end in ties. In the past, teams have been allowed to move one player from IR to the active roster per season, at the midway point.

The Bianconeri coach said: "I'd just like to say that we feel for what happened to our fans in Turin". Barely had the celebrations died down from Ronaldo's opener, than Croatian striker Mandzukic equalised in spectacular fashion with one of the great Champions League goals.

He said: "We are disappointed".

Gareth Bale came on late in his hometown final and soon saw Real captain Sergio Ramos' theatrical reaction earning substitute Juan Cuadrado a second booking, with Asensio compounding matters at the death.

"Clearly, I'll continue... our thoughts are already turning to next year but now we're going to enjoy this". "In the second, we have seen the best Madrid of the season".

Buffon had played in two previous Champions League finals and both times went home as a runner-up, against AC Milan on penalties in Manchester in 2003 and against Barcelona in Berlin two years ago.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that the Real Madrid poacher missed out on 2017 European Golden Shoe award to arch-rival Lionel Messi.

"To win it three times in four years means a lot and it is not only a good team on the pitch, but off the pitch, I am happy to be part of it".
