Reactions after the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid [Tweets]

What a final! Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid produced a 120-minute thriller in which neither squad was able to win, and thus a penalty shootout was needed.

Real Madrid started the match a lot better than their city rival and the result didn’t come too late – in the 15th minute Sergio Ramos scored the opener after a set piece, but the situation was quite controversial, as the defender looked like he was in an offside position. Until the end of the first-half, the Whites dominated, but could not increase their lead.

The second 45 minutes started with a heavy press by Atletico Madrid, which resulted in a penalty. However, Antoine Griezmann hit the bar and couldn’t equalize. In the 78th minute though, Atleti created a magnificent attack, which resulted in a goal by Yannick Carrasco.

When the regular time expired, the scoreboard showed 1-1, which meant it was time for two extra periods. In them, nothing too interesting happened, as both squads had some chances, but did not take advantage of them.

In the penalty shootout that followed, the only missed kick was by Juanfran, which turned out to be the difference between the winner and the loser. After everything, Sergio Ramos lifted the trophy, which was the 11th UCL Cup for Real Madrid.
