In a sizzling first half, Cristiano Ronaldo put Real ahead before Mario Mandzukic's incredible overhead kick, one of the great European Cup final goals, deservedly drew Juventus level under the Principality Stadium roof. Of these, 105 in the Champions League.

In Cardiff, Ronaldo scored twice as his side recorded a 12th triumph in European football's premier competition and Real became the first side to retain the Champions League trophy since it replaced the straight knockout competition that was the European Cup in the 1992/93 season.

Speaking about the fixture, Mourinho claims it'll be an hour to face the best team in Europe.

France's national team coach Didier Deschamps today hailed former France teammate Zinedine Zidane, who lead Real Madrid to consecutive Champions League titles.

This is the belief of newspapers in Spain after the Colombian was left out of Real Madrid's squad for the Champions League final.

The praise spread further afield, with France's L'Equipe labelling the winners "Unreal Madrid", while Portugal's E Bola featured a picture of Ronaldo leaping in celebration with the headline "Jump to eternity".

He used different formations and successfully resorted to rotating his players to keep them fresh at the important moments of the season, including Cristiano Ronaldo, who was rested like never before. I'm very happy for him.


Ronaldo, 32, has now scored 600 career goals for club and country, including 105 in the Champions League, and has finished as the top scorer in the competition for the last 5 seasons.

"I had to take some risks tonight", Allegri said.

Ronaldo played a pivotal role in Madrid's success, bringing back-to-back titles to the Spanish giants and he said afterwards that there is plenty of life and more trophies in him yet. "But first I want to enjoy it".

I'm a part of this team. I feel that it was correct the team that started the game.

"The only criticism I could make is that after conceding the second goal, we should have stayed in the game".

"We are disappointed", goalkeeper Buffon said in comments published on the website of European governing body UEFA. I always try to do a good job, with goals and the numbers don't lie.
