Real Madrid beats Atletico Madrid 4-1 to win Champions League final

Global News

LISBON, Portugal – Real Madrid broke down Atletico Madrid’s resistance in extra time to win the Champions League final 4-1 on Saturday and finally deliver the club’s record 10th European title.

Real struck three times in the second period of extra time, through Gareth Bale’s header in the 110th minute, Marcelo’s shot in the 118th and a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.

It was an unfairly lopsided score after Atletico was on the brink of victory in regulation time.

Sergio Ramos’s headed goal equalized for Real in the third minute of stoppage time at the end of 90 minutes.

Diego Godin put Atletico ahead when his 35th-minute header looped into a Real goal left vacant by captain and veteran goalkeeper Iker Casillas’s reckless rush out.
