Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid in dramatic fashion to claim the tenth European title

Real Madrid clinched the tenth European Cup after beating city rivals Atletico in dramatic fashion.

Diego Godin opened the scoring on 36 minutes exploiting Iker Casillas’ mistake. The Colchoneros stood firm and were on the brink of completing their successful season with the Champions League title. However, Real Madrid pushed for an equalizer and Sergio Ramos scored a solid header three minutes into the added time. Such was the disappontment of Diego Simeone’s boys that they conceded three more in extra time, from Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid finally won their first Champions League since 2002 and 10th overall. They are now three titles above AC Milan.
