Bale 'proud', Ronaldo outstanding as Real Madrid make Champions League history

Real Madrid's dream season ended with a bang in Cardiff after they deservedly won the Champions League final against Juventus - becoming the first team to defend the Champions League title, reports HNS on June 3, 2017.

Later, Marco Asensio scored from the close range in the 90 minute, which proved out to be the final nail in the coffin as RM won the game with a margin of three goals to win their 12 UCL title.

His goals also ensured Real became the first side to win the tournament back-to-back. To be the first to retain the trophy since 1990 - you can't underestimate that.

Ronaldo has either won or shared the Champions League top-scorer award six times. He showed Cuadrado a second yellow and Juventus - already in the mire and desperately trying to chase things - were down to 10 men, their job made all the more hard by Ramos and his blatant cheating.

"It's another record and these players deserved it, me too because I scored two goals and finished as the top scorer in the Champions League".

REAL MADRID comfortably beat Juventus in the Champions League final tonight - here are some of the best photos of them celebrating.

"I scored two goals, am the top scorer in the Champions League again", Ronaldo said.

Dani Carvajal created the opening with a crisp pass to Ronaldo on the edge of the box, with the Portuguese wizard wasting no time in firing past Gianluigi Buffon with the help of deflection.


Ronaldo's effort was eclipsed seven minutes later by one of the all-time great final goals. The goalkeeper blocked a header and strike from Gonzalo Higuain, and produced a one-handed save when Miralem Pjanic picked a gap through a crowd of defenders.

The ball did not touch the ground between leaving Bonucci's boot and hitting the net.

The Brazilian midfielder unleashed a shot from 25 yards that flicked off the heels of Madrid old boy Sami Khedira before spinning past the helpless Buffon.

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

Asensio tucked in the fourth goal after Marcelo had charged to the byline and Real's dominance was complete. Me and my team-mates have done the double.

"The only criticism I could make is that after the second goal we should have stayed in the game mentally to make sure we still had chances".

"I prepared myself for this, you win the biggest prizes because of what you do at the end of the season", he said. "I say it every year, but it's true".

After a positive start it turned into a hugely frustrating night for Juventus and their coach Max Allegri. We're going to have to work very hard to win once again.
